Online applications for bachelor’s and master’s degrees are on the rise, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for students to get them in time for the deadline.
The number of people applying for bachelor degrees has doubled in the past five years, and there are now more than 7,500 applications for each degree level.
This means the application process can become extremely busy for students, and they’re not the only ones getting stuck.
“The main reason for this is that the government is pushing for more online courses,” said Dr Amy Fenton, lecturer in applied science and technology at University College London.
“It’s actually pretty hard to get an online course to happen on time and to meet the criteria for an undergraduate course,” she said.
“We’ve also seen that in terms of the time required for an online application, we’ve seen a fall in applications.”
If you have a degree in science, technology, engineering or maths, it takes anywhere between five to seven years to complete.
“What you need to know about the UC application deadline, including the latest deadlines for applying to the university and the latest dates for applications.
More: Students will not have to make up any courses for the UCs 2019/2020 application year, which starts on Tuesday, March 10.”
You won’t have to take up any additional courses, but the universities have put in extra requirements,” Dr Fenton said.
For example, a student will need to take a degree course in the area of applied mathematics in 2019/20, and an engineering degree in 2020/21.”
So if you are applying to UCs for a degree, you’ll need to be a member of a registered science, engineering and mathematics society to get that designation,” she added.
Dr Fenton is urging all students to apply for their degrees online, as it makes the process easier.”
Online courses have been a huge success in helping students get the job placement they need, and for many students they’re also a way to see what they can do,” she explained.”
They can actually help you get into the industry and get a job.
