At NEW6, students are provided with individual advice and support with their UCAS applications to ensure they have every chance of being successful. Students receive a range of lessons which are designed to offer guidance and support on future courses, university destinations and student finance.
We provide students with information on all University open days across the UK along with appropriate careers conventions and job opportunities. Business relationships are important because they increase the opportunity for students to get work-related experiences which will strengthen their CVs in a time of high competition for the best university places and job training.
We take great pride in the support we provide to ensure that every student gets the most professional and informed guidance for their future careers.
NEW6 has established relationships with numerous academic institutions and the KS5 Pastoral Manager sends out weekly updates with new schemes, initiatives, and enrichment programmes that may be of interest to a Sixth Form student.
To apply for university, students need to create an account at https://www.ucas.com/students as an ‘undergraduate student’. Then select the year they will be entering Higher Education to start the application. During the application, it is important they select ‘apply through school’. They will be asked for a Buzzword to link your account to school which they can get from their form tutor.
Here is a list of dates that we work with for our application process
Student Finance opens around March for Year 13 students. Students need to apply with parents/carers via: https://www.gov.uk/apply-online-for-student-finance
Students with non-British passports or international status may need to provide additional evidence, so please apply as early as possible.
Please note, staff at NEW6 cannot speak on behalf of university applicants and therefore all students should speak to the ‘Admissions’ department of their university if they have any further queries about their applications.
