    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if you could help me.

    Is there anything that you would recommend that would be impressive to put on my UCAS application? I was thinking of taking up a few activities this summer before I go into my AS year.

    What things would make me really stand out?

    Thank you - I would really appreciate your help!

    What course are you applying for? Bear in mind the deadline for most summer internships has passed.

    Just take an active interest in activities, events, publications, blogs, lectures etc etc that relate to your course AND that genuinely interest you.

    Genuine enthusiasm is rare and extremely attractive to admissions staff who have chosen to devote their entire career to a specific subject.
