Hello, guys!

I am an international student and I currently am thinking about changing universities due to personal reasons.

I would like to go to UEA at 2020, and after I have attended the Open Day Event, I knew it was the right place for me , from location to the quality of the courses. I also asked the admissions team about the entry equivalents for Romanian Students and I was told that I am eligible and that I should apply. I have one problem: I have never applied through UCAS , as there was a Local Team that helped me with my application and made the process much easier. Although the site gives me lots of information, I am still a bit worried about the application , as I do not want to mess everything up and maybe have problems from a legal P.O.V.

So, I was wondering if there are any students(international preferably,but all advice is helpful!) who went through this and could give me their help. I would really appreciate this.

Thank you so much!

If you follow the guidance (including reading The help text and ? Text on each page) then you’ll be fine. If you have any specific questions then post them here on tsr and we’ll help

Yes we will help you if you have questions but the best thing is just to start an application. UEA Admissions will also be able to offer help on certain things. Some UK applicants are also left to make the UCAS application without much help from their schools, it is possible 😀

I have already started my application and it is not as hard as I thought, but I do not know what to put about my current uni on “Education”. I haven’t received the results of most of my assignments yet, only one which is a First , so I don’t know how should I proceed.

If you put the date of your exams down as May or June 2020, it will be obvious to UEA that you won't have the results yet. If you are applying for entry into Year 1, they will be mainly looking at the exams you have already taken anyway, the ones that got you into your current uni.

You could mention in your personal statement that you got a First in your first assignment but that is the only result you have so far. If you are asking your uni personal tutor for a reference, they could also mention it as evidence that you are coping well with degree level study.

I understand although I think your tutor would have be professional about it. But you ask your old school which is what my son did when he dropped out of one uni and applied to a different one

You normally just put your teachers email address onto the form and UCAS then emails the teacher asking for it. You should email the teacher first asking them if it's ok to put them down as a referee
