(in Britain) Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (an official organization that deals with applications to study at universities and colleges)
Students must complete a special form, on paper or on the Internet, and may apply to a maximum of six institutions. Each institution then considers the requests and may offer students places. The organization also publishes The Big Guide (University and College Entrance: The Official Guide), which lists all the courses available at British universities and colleges, and gives information about them. The only university that does not take part in the UCAS service is the ↑Open University.
