Hi! I am trying to fill out my UCAS application as a international student from the US. My school required a record release form be filled out and I am suppose to list the universities I want to attend, their address, who to send it to, and the number of transcripts required.
Since you don't apply directly to universities like you do in the US how does getting a transcript to the uni I am applying to work? What should I put in these section?
I thought all information is sent through UCAS and then they send the information to the universities I have on my choices page.
Also, the same questions apply for getting SAT scores sent to the universities. I was going to add my choices for the sat score recipients at collegeboard but it requires a code for each university and I don't know what those are.
I am applying to:
University of Greenwich
London South Bank University
Thanks for any help you can give

Most universities require you to correctly enter your score on UCAS, they don't want CollegeBoard score reports until you're made an offer.
Atleast that's what I gathered when I enquired about sending my SAT scores to unis in the UK. I'm an international too and relatively new to the UCAS and stuff, so it would be better if someone else could confirm what I'm saying.
Or else, just contact the universities directly via phone/mail, you'll get immediate help.

I know that Cambridge asks for a transcript from internationals, but I don't think many others do ask for it. It would be best to check each uni's website or contact em directly.
Best of luck with your application!

After making an International Application through UCAS, you must have your official transcripts and test scores sent directly to the universities with which you applied.
For Middlesex you can either have your previous institution send the official transcript via post or you can email a scanned copy of the official transcript/test score to [email protected] or [email protected]. Please remember to include your UCAS ID in the email.
Regarding the university code for the SAT college board, as we do not have a code to provide, we suggest once you have obtained an official copy of the SAT results to email a scanned copy directly to us.
I hope this helps, don't hesitate to contact us via The Student Room or at [email protected] if you need any more info.
Good luck with your application!
