UK universities have a world-class reputation and some of the top rankings globally. Applying for university in the UK is a very competitive process, with courses requiring students to stand out from the crowd. Uni Direct can assist you in applying for university, helping you gain the best possible place on the right course for you.

Choosing what to study at university, and the right university for you, is the first and often most challenging step. At Uni Direct we help undergraduate and postgraduate applicants to make the right choices of what to study at university across all subject areas. An important part of this process is discussing your career aspirations to ensure we match your academic interests with your future goals.



Applying for university in the UK usually involves completing a UCAS application for an undergraduate course, which requires you to submit a personal statement and, for some courses, attend an interview. Some applications for foundation degrees are made direct to a university.

A postgraduate university application, requires a personal statement and cv. We help you in applying for university through a series of one to one sessions with our expert advisers, using Skype or other communication means, and is aided by a comprehensive research service.
