Hi! I completed a virtual work experience by Springpod and I want to put it onto my UCAS activities in the Diversity and inclusion section, however UCAS is asking for a location for it. I've tried putting London, N/A and everything in between and it continues to ask me to 'specify a value' - and without adding a location I can't seem to add it onto my UCAS activities. Has anyone managed to put their Springpod Virtual Work Experience onto their UCAS activities successfully? Please help me.

I used springpod for some work experience too. Put it in the formal work experience section but specify that it was virtual work experience, because the summer work in the diversity section means like Sutton Trust Summer Schools and Pathways kind of work experiences that directly affect your offers at ur choices. Hope this helps!

Yes, as long as you specify that it was virtual work experience and make sure you have the necessary certificate/proof downloaded

That section is not designed for commercial courses/'work experience' - its for prep for HE activities like Sutton Trust, Pathways to Law and any widening participation actvies run by individual Unis.

This is the sort of thing you can mention on your PS as evidence of interest but otherwise its not going to impress Unis much at all.
