    I recently left university (around a month ago) and I am currently working whilst staying at home. My plans for the near future are clear. I want to start uni again this September, but I have a few questions and need some advice.

    First of all, I had left uni for many reasons. I didn't enjoy the course and the university itself really wasn't for me. I noticed that my mental and physical health started to deteriorate really quickly whilst being in such an environment so I thought hard about this and believe that this was the best choice for me.

    Okay, now onto my questions about starting back in September. My plan is to go to another university and choose another course which I will enjoy more. I was wondering what the process is in terms of UCAS and the application itself.

    First of all, is it too late to apply for September 2018? What is the best way of completing the UCAS application if I am applying as an individual? How would I get a reference etc?

    I was thinking that if it is too late too apply to some unis, I could potentially complete my UCAS application and somehow go through clearing and then find a place? However, I would rather get everything done ASAP.

    Thanks and any useful contributions are highly appreciated.

    you can put a late application through ucas, just ask the universities if they'll accept an application. Ideally you'd want a reference from your old university but if not your sixth form/ college might do.
