I want to apply to an HND at Kingston college but I don't know if I need to sign up to UCAS and draft a personal statement or whether it's through a separate site. I'm applying for 2021 by the way

I think you apply direct to the college rather than UCAS for Further/HE colleges. UCAS is uni's only.

I did my HNC at a college so applied direct, when i wanted to go to uni to finish my HND I had to go through UCAS.

So it does. Must admit i'm not sure why, all their HNC/HND courses lead to the UCAS page "Applying for university and college degree courses" which isn't v clear :/ But their BTEC ones all take you to their own system.

They do offer some outside accredited degrees though, which might have something to do with it.

I've emailed them because it's incredibly confusing and not on there

Yeah def best asking them for a clarification, there does seem to be a bit of variety over what exactly colleges are and do these days.
