Absolutely wonderful tutors, helped me through 2 years of A-Levels with great study support. The UCAS special tutorials were also a great help in my University application process.

How do I apply to university in the UK?

Almost all university applications in the UK must go through a UCAS centre. Make your UCAS application through ITS Education Asia. We are a fully accredited UCAS centre (No: S45903). We can process your UCAS application whether you study with us or not.

Students use ITS for UCAS in 3 ways:

  • Full-time ITS students get a UCAS package included in their fees if they wish to apply to UK universities;
  • Students at other schools whose application is being handled by that school but want help with choosing courses, personal statement or re-applying;
  • Students who are handling their own UCAS account but need specific services most commonly a reference and/or predicted grades.


  • course choice counselling
  • UCAS account set up
  • personal statement complete
  • reference letter
  • predicted grades
  • 20 hours admissions and/or interview test prep
  • admission test entry and invigilation
  • monitor application
  • advice regarding offers
  • YCI Member

All packages are tailored from the above list depending on each applicant's needs

Or you can choose individual services:

Personal statement support HK$1200 per hour HK$1500 per hour
UCAS Reference HK$2200 HK$4500
Predicted grades (includes mock exam)
Per subject HK$1500 HK$2500
Counselling on any part of the process HK$1200 HK$1500

If you need more extensive counselling regarding university and course choice we have a special 6 hour Choosing Your University package which you can take prior to enrolling in either UCAS or a US admissions package, or both.

If you are applying to certain universities or certain courses you may need to go through additional entry requirements which need support as they are so competitive e.g. for entrance tests, additional work submission and interviews. We are a full admissions test centre and have a great track record with Oxbridge applications. Follow the links below.

What is the UCAS Tariff?

The UCAS tariff allocates points to qualifications used to enter higher education so you can use a range of qualifications to get a place on an undergraduate course. Qualifications are accepted from all over the world, and allocated points based on equivalency. Different levels on any given qualification attract different amounts of tariff points.

The UCAS tariff enables universities and colleges to compare applicants with different applications and is an important factor in entry requirements, although other factors are also taken into consideration.

How is the Tariff used in higher education?

It is common for entry requirements and conditional offers using Tariff points to require a minimum level of achievement, sometimes in a specified subject. For example, "300 points to include grade A at A-level Mathematics".

The actual use of the UCAS Tariff can vary between departments in any one university or college, and can also depend on the type of programme being applied for.

UCAS Tariff points are awarded for a wide range of qualifications, including BTEC National Award, Key Skills at levels 2, 3 and 4, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. There is no maximum limit to the number of points that can be accumulated.

Although your qualifications may give you UCAS Tariff points, having the required amount does not guarantee a place on your preferred course, as other factors are also considered.

If your qualifications do not attract UCAS Tariff points, there is still a chance you can get accepted on to your chosen course. UCAS Tariff are not used by all universities and colleges for making offers to prospective students, so if you feel there might be a question mark over your success with an application due to your qualification, contact the relevant university admissions office.

How do I find out how many points my qualifications are worth?

To see the number of points each of your qualifications are worth, consult the UCAS Tariff tables on the UCAS website.
