    I've just started filling out my ucas application. There is a section that asks if you were born in the UK, and if not, when you entered. I was born in Jersey in the Channel Islands, which are, as far as I know, not considered part of the UK. however, neither Jersey or the Channel Islands are an option when looking at the list of countries, and I do not know the date I moved, as I was only a few months old. I therefore don't know how to continue with my application, any ideas?

    Jersey is not part of the UK (according to google) but it is a part of the British Isles. It describes it as a 'British Crown Dependency' so maybe try looking for something like that? I don't think you would need the exact date, just the general time that you moved. I wouldn't have thought it would have mattered if you were a few months out, although I have to admit I'm not sure. If you are in doubt about anything just get in contact with UCAS (This is the 'Contact Us' page as they have different phone numbers depending on what you're applying for http://www.ucas.com/about-us/contact-us)
