Is your son or daughter applying to university? Are you looking to discover the secrets of a successful university application? Your complete guide to how the UK university admissions system really works, The Insider's Guide to Applying to University gives the full picture about university applications - from selecting your degree course and university to accepting an offer or going through clearing. Containing essential tips for applicants, The Insider's Guide to Applying to University reveals the real reasons why universities reject a quarter of applications and offers practical tips on how to avoid being part of this statistic. Full of honest insights about key differences between what the official information says and what actually happens, The Insider's Guide to Applying to University discloses vital information you can't find in university prospectuses, from how the application process really works to securing a place on the university degree course of your choice. Including a summary at the end of each chapter with a checklist of the points to remember, there are useful hints and tips from students, admissions tutors and careers professionals, advice on the UCAS personal statement and attending interviews, and information about common misconceptions about courses. With an 8% increase in the number of full-time university applications for 2010 (the biggest rise in eight years) and the trend set to continue, it's vital to ensure the best university application possible - particularly when there university funding cuts threaten a significant reducation in university places available. UCAS has already predicted a challenging and competitive year for those wanting to go to university. It remains the case that the UCAS personal statement is a pivotal part of the UCAS application process, since even with the new A* qualifcation, A level results are no longer enough to guarantee a successful university application. Fortunately, The Insider's Guide to Applying to University gives current advice from experts to ensure you can present a winning application to a university admissions panel. Unravelling the mysteries of university applications and highlighting what admissions tutors are really looking for in prospective students, The Insider's Guide to Applying to University is your indispensable resource if you want to get ahead in applying to university. Can you afford not to?
