can you apply as an individual if you're a current college student? watch

    • Thread Starter

    hi all, as my title states I just want to make sure it's ok to apply as an individual even though I'm at college?

    I'm a mature student and feel that my college won't be able to give a good reference cos I switched courses so I'd rather ask someone who knows me better academically

    Yes you can. When you apply you can choose some options. Just click "apply as an individual" And in the "referee" section you fill in your referee details. It should be someone who you feel can represent you best academically but could also be your boss at work. More information at: http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works...erees/referees
