Some tips and tricks to make UCAS less stressful

Application season can be understandably stressful, with personal statements to write and colleges to shortlist it can seem overwhelming. However, it doesn't have to be! Here are some tips and tricks you can try to make application season a bit more manageable:

  1. Sometimes, it’s not all about rankings. Your perfect college may not be the top three. If possible, try to go to open days to get a feel of the university and otherwise talk to students studying there and research it online! Unibuddy and LinkedIn can be helpful for this 

  2. The same goes for courses! Before applying blindly to a university check their course structure and content to find your best fit!

  3. Talk about it! Sometimes, simply talking about your problems with your friends and family can go a long way. Understand that they are going through the same thing as you and be there to support each other. 

  4. Applying to university can be stressful, so it's important to take some time for yourself to relax and de-stress. Make sure you get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and exercise regularly. You can also try relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation, or even play your favourite sport!

  5. Getting organised, either on paper or digitally can be extremely helpful. There are a number of factors to consider while applying to university like finances, distance, course etc. Putting it all down is sure to make you feel less overwhelmed!
