How many colleges can I apply to?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

In the UCAS form you are limited to applying to 5 courses. You can even apply to up to 5 different courses at one university. However we strongly recommend that you identify your subject of interest, and apply to 5 different colleges for a similar course. All the universities receive the same Personal Statement, and by keeping your options open you are diluting your message.

Furthermore, you should make sure that you have a range that includes Reach, Target and Safety Schools. A University does not have a standardized grade cut-off for all its courses. Applying to a range of schools will ensure that you set ambitious goals for yourself, but at the same time provide yourself with back-up options.
