The buzzword for your organisation is:



UCAS provides the comprehensive search data base for all universities in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland)

Quality Assurance Assessments

This site is very useful if you want subject-specific information about the quality of teaching and research at many universities in the UK. The information comes from quality assurance agency site visits. Look up “Geography” at the University of London, for example, and find out the departments strengths and weaknesses.

Good University Guide Provides ranking and articles about higher education in the UK.
Hobsons provides students, advisers, parents, careers and professionals with information on courses and careers. It is the premier site for details of thousands of career and education opportunities in the UK and around the world.
The British Council home page The British council provides one of the most comprehensive sites on the web for higher education in the UK and British culture.

Push Guide

This is the online version of the well-known book, The Push Guide to Which University. The Push Guide describes all universities in Britain from a student’s point of view and is quite readable.

PUSH Online: the alternative guide to UK Universities

Student UK

This site, which is also linked to the UCAS site, provides information about student life at universities. It includes information about money matters, housing, health care, entertainment and survival tips.

The Higher Education Statistics Agency

As the name suggests, this site provides some highly statistical information, such as data on ethnicity, gender, subject, and students with disabilities. For example, if you want to know the percentage of UK undergraduates studying medicine who are women, you can find it out on this site. If you have time to look THIS up, however, you might want to review your progress on your extended essay.

Education Information Service The British council provides you with guided tours or University campuses.
