I am living in Australia and would like to study as a mature student in the United Kingdom. Are you please able to explain the selection criteria on how I can apply. Any help would be appreciated..
Universities have the discretion where their admissions are concerned, so there is much variation in entry criteria between courses and between universities. University websites are very helpful in providing general guidelines about their requirements but these should be treated as guidelines. If you have non-standard qualifications, you should contact a few university admissions offices direct giving as much information as you can about your education, qualifications and work experience. They should be able to give you some indication of whether you are suitably qualified for the course you’re interested in. Application to all UK undergraduate degree courses is online to www.ucas.com. You only have five choices so you don’t want to waste one by not meeting the course entry criteria. It is important to do your homework on choosing your course and choosing your university.
