Derek Mackay, SNP MSP for Renfrewshire North & West, is reminding students from across Renfrewshire and Inverclyde who are applying to attend University this summer to ensure they do not miss the January deadline for applications.
Applications for the majority of courses should arrive at UCAS by Monday 15th January at 6pm.
Applications must be made at http://www.ucas.com/
Mr Mackay said:
“The deadline for the majority of summer 2018 courses is a matter of days away. With the upheaval of the festive period, it would be very easy to put applications to one side and forget.
“It would be very unfortunate for anyone to miss out on their number one choice, not to mention wasting years of hard work, because they simply missed the deadline or rushed their application.
“I therefore would urge any student in the area who is planning on applying to attend uni next summer to ensure they are working on their application and submit it in good time.”
