    Hello,

    Should I talk about my uncompleted studies done in my home country in the ucas application (form or personal statement) ??
    I attended 1 year of university, then dropped out because I didn't like the organization and course structure.
    or should I avoid referring to it at all ? will they find out?

    Thanks.

    You have no choice: the UCAS rules dictate that you have to declare all education after the age of 11, including university and college education, even if you didn't complete the course.

    They probably won't check it though, if you do decide not to declare it..

    Lots of people do this every year. Stop worrying about it and start thinking about how to present it in a positive light.
