UCAS applications

At CGA Sixth Form we pride ourselves on the quality of our advice, information and guidance regarding applications to university. 

Our rolling Higher Education Programme begins in year 12 and continues right the way through year 13, extending to significant student aftercare beyond examination results day.  Support is also provided for students, and their families, regarding completing Student Finance Forms, budgeting, accommodation and student welfare services.  Additionally, students are advised about the many bursary packages available at university and will be offered support in applying for these in advance of the commencement of their courses.
