Higher education form change for Armed Forces families

Students applying for 2023 entry to higher education will be now able to declare if they are from a UK Armed Forces family.

The question is not compulsory and has been included so that universities and colleges have a better understanding of how many students from military families they have. It will also enable them to put more support in place to help these students to develop further.

AFF Employment & Training Specialist, Lucy Ritchie, said: “This is to help universities recognise the impact a Service child’s life may have on their time leading up to higher education study, and to encourage the university to ensure support is in place for those who may need it.”

Full details and FAQs are available on the UCAS website.
