Applications for September 2018
At the University of Birmingham School, our Sixth Form provides unique opportunities for students across the West Midlands.
If you have an offer from us, you MUST visit School with your GCSE results before 11am on Thursday 23 August to confirm your place and enrol. If you are in the applicant pool, there will be places available, so please also visit School that morning to see if we are able to offer you a place.
If you do not visit School to confirm your place, we will assume you no longer want your place at UoBS and it will be offered to someone else – therefore it is essential you visit School, or send someone else on your behalf with your GCSE results.

If you are interested in applying to UoB School for entry in September 2018, the first step is to visit us on one of our Sixth Form open evenings.

During these evenings, you will have chance to speak to teachers about the courses we offer here and find out more about the entry requirements and application process. We look forward to seeing you!
Steps to Applying.
Create an account on this page: www.ucasprogress.com/account/pickaschool. Enter your current School here. If you cannot find it, you may need to enter a variation of your School’s name. Otherwise, select ‘I cannot find my School’ and continue with your account registration.
Once you have created an account, log in, and use this link to find and select A Level courses at the University of Birmingham School, and add them to your ‘Favourites’.
You should select three A Level courses, unless you wish to study Further Mathematics, which you can study as a fourth subject.
Click on the ‘Profile’ tab at the top. Fill in all of your profile details, ensuring you save each section. You will need to include all of the qualifications you are currently studying for, and your predicted grades from your school. This profile will be used in all post-16 applications you make via UCAS Progress.
NB: You do not have to write a Personal Statement or fill in Work History for your application to UoBSchool Sixth Form. These sections will not be considered as part of your application.
Once you have completed all sections in your profile, click on the ‘Applications’ tab. Start a new application, select the courses you want to study.
Fill in any remaining questions (eg medical information). If you have no additional information, write ‘N/A’ in these boxes.
Submit your application.
UCAS Progress will send you an email to let you know if your application is being processed. You may need to check your ‘promotions’ or ‘spam’ folders. Please ensure you continue to check your emails and your messages on UCAS Progress on a regular basis.
