Students are invited to join the UCAS Card scheme in academic Years 12, S5, or equivalent. The scheme is a fun and informative way to introduce students to the UCAS application process, providing resource and study guides, help with the application process and information about what life as a student is really like. In addition, students also receive special offers and discounts from leading brands. These promotions are provided by our UCAS Card partners. If you have any questions regarding the terms and conditions, you should contact the Commercial Director at UCAS Media Limited, Rosehill, New Barn Lane, Cheltenham, GL52 3LZ.
