The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) has recently taken an important step towards simplifying the application process to UK universities by creating a multi-language mobile application. This will help postgraduate students from diverse countries to access and be updated about the programs and deadlines. Further, it will also simplify the application process for different programs and providing easy access for students around the world. Referred to as MO University Assistant App, the UCAS Mobile Application aims to assist more than 15,000 students aspiring to study postgraduate programs in the UK.
MO University Assistant App
The founder of MO, Myles Jardine said to Erudera College News that with UCAS credibility, expertise, and connections, MO could quickly establish as an application platform which will support students in their journey to UK higher education as well as assist UK universities in attracting more students from the whole world. On the launch of the UCAS mobile app, Jardine further added, “Everything we’ve done at MO has been about enhancing the support students have when making that life-changing decision to go to higher education in the UK. That’s why we are so excited by this acquisition by UCAS, as it is an organization that has the same focus and passion for students that we have.”
The new MO Board which will operate as a commercial enterprise completely owned by UCAS will be led by Mark Felix, the Commercial Director at MoneySupermarket Group.
