Alright so I'm in a Uni course which is shared with a College at the moment. The first two years of my degree course is taught in a college and we are expected to get a HNC by the end of the first year and then a HND by the end of the second year. Basically I'm not enjoying the course and I'd like to switch to a Uni closer to home. I've saw some courses in a near-by Uni that I'm interested in so I guess I want to make a new UCAS application. This is where I'm struggling because I don't know where to get a reference, who to ask about my personal statement and whether I should be applying as an individual or through the uni? Basically I want to go back into first year of a new uni course. I'm absolutely panicking and don't have a clue what to do because the deadline is so near.
Also, as a side note, where do I get the 'buzzword' from if I'm an individual applicant?

If you're an individual applicant you won't have a buzzword. It's unlikely that you'll apply through the uni - so if you use a reference from uni you would apply as an individual. If you ask your previous school for a reference then you would probably apply through them (and use their buzzword).
So really, you need to figure out your reference first. This then dictates whether you apply as an individual or through a centre. You need an academic reference. If you have a tutor at uni then you can ask them, or you can ask your previous school if you left recently and think they'd give a better reference.
