Product description

"Degree Course Offers" is the definitive guide to HE entry. Written by Brian Heap, the UK's leading authority on Higher Education, it contains the information and advice, applicants need in order to draw up a shortlist of courses and then win a place on the degree course of their choice. It is the only publication that lists courses in descending UCAS tariff points order. Applicants can therefore quickly compare each institution's entry requirement for their chosen subject, in order to locate those courses that best match their predicted grades and UCAS tariff points. As well as containing course listings, the book provides a wealth of subject-specific information and takes the prospective student through the application process. For each of the main degree subjects, applicants will find information on: potential interview questions; reasons for rejection after an interview; applicants' impressions of open days; graduate destinations and employment; the number of applicants per place; what admissions tutors look for in the personal statement; top institutions for research. New for this edition are: now in colour throughout; new section on university admissions tests; a new double-page spread for the tariff points explanation table, which will cover alternative offers such as the International Baccalaureate; and, new larger format.
