At the heart of connecting people to the UK higher education

AF is proud to announce that we are now an official UCAS centre

10 May 2016

UCAS is an online admissions application portal for universities and colleges in the UK. As an official UCAS centre, let AF help you navigate through the UK university application process and assist you in achieving your academic goals!

What is UCAS?

  • UCAS is an online admissions application portal for universities and colleges in the UK.
  • All students planning to study for an undergraduate degree in the UK must apply through UCAS, including international students.
  • Students can only choose up to five courses to apply to. Therefore, many international students tend to seek help for the application from overseas educational centres in order to make the right decision and minimize the complicated procedure.
  • Applicants are required to submit a series of information, including personal details, academic results, personal statement, references, and a few other select particulars.
  • UCAS will forward the application to the universities and colleges to which the applicants have applied.
  • Universities and colleges then give applicants either an unconditional offer or conditional offer.
  • From here, it is up to applicants to reply to the university before the deadline


  • AF is a fully accredited UCAS centre.
  • We are partnered with UCAS and, as such, we are a trusted source for UK universities and colleges.
  • We have access to the latest information and can help you with everything you need throughout your application process.
  • We offer admissions coaching to help students with their UCAS applications, such as School and Course Selection, Personal Statement Construction and Refinement, Admission Test Training, and a number of other crucial areas.
  • Learn with AF’s teachers and consultants: scholars from the most elite global institutions. We will enable you to excel in your academic studies, enhance your individual profile and help you composing a unique personal statement to ensure your application really stands out from the crowd.
