    Wondering how to enter this on the UCAS form. I do consider myself self employed (despite my age ) and I am registered as self employed with HMRC and pay tax etc as such.
    I'm not sure how to put this on my UCAS form though, I don't run a business as such so therefore all I have to enter for the employment form would be my own name and address which must look very very dodgy. I mean if you could do that, surely everyone would just do it?

    Anyone got any idea what to do?

    Don't put it in then put it on your personal statement if you think it shows skills necessary for the degree you're applying for.

    What do you do?
    Hard to describe without writing an essay, mostly internet marketing work. Doesn't really sound like a "job" I know but it puts me over the ~£6,400 per year tax threshold. If I wasn't registered as self employed and paying tax as such I'd be breaking the law so I thought it would be fair to consider myself self employed for my UCAS application

    Have you spoke about it in your personal statement at all? If it's supported in your statement then it won't look dodgy

    Yeah, it's fairly relevant to the course so I've written about it in there too.

    Ah, that's all good then. How about entering 'Freelance ____' in the description of the job role?
