UCAS Deadlines

  • If you would like West College Scotland to send your application to UCAS then it must be completed by
    9th December 2016 (please ensure you use the Buzzword on your application form)


  • If you are submitting your own application and reference (without using the Buzzword) then it must reach UCAS before 5.59pm, 15th January 2017. Applications received after will be stamped as late.

UCAS Buzzword

By using a UCAS Buzzword, it is possible to associate your UCAS application with West College Scotland. This allows our Student Advisors to access your application form and to send it off (along with your reference).

To get this year’s UCAS Buzzword, just ask a Student Advisor.

You must pay UCAS application fee whether or not you use the Buzzword.
