UCAS Update – 4th May
UCAS sent a letter from the Universities Minister, Michelle Donelan, to applicants. This included an update on Government support to students and universities.
They explain that whilst there is considerable uncertainty for everyone right now, it’s important that students continue to progress with their applications, make decisions, and apply for things like student finance. This will ensure you are in the best possible position when it comes to Confirmation and Clearing this summer.
