    Hi all,

    I'm currently studying at university on a foundation degree course and i'm currently on my 2nd year. But i am in the process of applying to another university on ucas, starting from 2nd but on a BA course. I was filling out the UCAS application and they asked if i'm applying through college or as an individual. I clicked individual because i feel that when writing my references, my tutors are going to take long to write one. Do you think its ok to apply as an individual even though i'm still studying?

    I transferred last year and I clicked individual.

    In my mindset it only classes as going through a college when your actually at college/sixth form, your at university now so it's a completely different circumstance. Just make sure you put point of entry '2'.

    You need to discuss this with your referee. If your school are writing your reference they will probably want you to apply through them, but if it's elsewhere then individual will be fine
