UCAS is the organisation responsible for managing your application to university or college.  It is there to help you make an informed decision.

Further information can be found at www.ucas.com

The Course Search function provides you with courses that match your criteria and where you can study them; it can also give you a good understanding of what a course is about.

Entry Profiles tell you what grades and any other requirements you will need to study such courses.
