    If you apply individually, you have to type in your reference, otherwise your school does.

    You can only apply individually if you are a mature or independent student. If your school is registered on UCAS you won't be able to.

    When you apply individually you have to paste in your reference (most of the time it doesn't come from a school, maybe an employer who has no knowledge of how UCAS works), predicted grades if you have them etc.

    It's £17 this year, you pay regardless of whether it is an individual or college/sixth form application.

    Unless, your college is really nice and pays it for you :p:.

    Also applying through school they put your reference on for you whereas you put it in yourself as an individual and it is from an employer rather than a teacher as is the case with a school application

    At my sixth form we filled in our forms, forwarded them to our referee, who checked over it to make sure we had all the right details on it. Attached our reference, showed us a copy of said reference and if we were happy with it we gave them the ok to send it onto UCAS.

    In terms of paying, once our school had recieved the invoice from UCAS we had to pay them the £15 for our application.

    Really? Huh. I will check my bank statement... I mean, it's only two pounds, but I wouldn't like to go around telling everyone £15 when it wasn't.

    hat is the difference between applying for UCAS individually or via a college

    what do you mean by the price?
    is it more costly to apply as an individual?
