For Students Wishing to Apply to a UK University

The UK University Advice Service is designed to help students who wish to apply to a UK University.

For students wishing to apply to a University outside of the UK, please visit our International Universities Advice Service page.

Many homeschoolers welcome advice on a variety of questions as they consider UK University options.

  • Which subjects should I take at A Level?
  • Do I need to improve my existing grades?
  • What extra-curricular activities should I be considering?
  • How do I complete the UCAS Form?
  • What should I include in my personal statement?

Our UK University Advice Service will guide you every step of the way from A level choices to University short list to application.

Please note that the University Advice Service is only available to students enrolled with Wolsey Hall, or as part of our ongoing Admissions process.

I've done it, I've gotten in to university, and Edinburgh University, no less! Thank you so very much for your help in preparing my application. I really and truly could not have done this without you, and I wanted to let you know that all your work to help me has borne university-shaped fruit. I am extremely excited, and VERY busy getting ready as I move very soon. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your help with James' application. He has an unconditional offer to do Computer Science at Kings College London which I think is our first choice, and other offers. All the best at what must be a challenging and hectic time.
