Welcome to

The Adeyfield Academy

Applying to University

The UCAS Procedure

Beginning in the Summer term of Year 12, the students are introduced, through a series of seminars and talks, to the UCAS process. Advice is given on the procedures, and how to make an effective application. At the end of the Summer Term there is an extensive programme covering student finance, personal statement writing, gap years and how to make a success of university life. As the students move into Year 13, they are given full support through the application process from filling in the UCAS form to accepting offers and attending university.

UniTalks is a podcast designed to support young people on their journey to university. It aims to answer all of the questions you might have about applying for, and studying at, the world’s leading universities. It also aims to give listeners access to the vast array of fascinating subjects that can be studied at university, which is far more expansive than the A-Level curriculum!

Listen to Brilliant Club pupils interrogate the UK’s pre-eminent thinkers about their cutting-edge research across the humanities and sciences and their journeys to academia.

The Kings College London’s Agony Aunts bust myths about subjects ranging from student finances to fitting in at university, and provide practical information on applications, and the interviews and admissions tests themselves.

If you are a pupils, parent or teacher and have questions about university applications and life – UniTalks is for you! UniTalks is available at the link below, as well as on iTunes and Stitcher.

UniTalks is produced in association with the Institute for Art and Ideas and King’s College London.
