UCAS Applications - do it now! If you are planning to go to university next year, you should now be starting your UCAS application now as the process takes some time. There is lots of support available from your Group Tutor and from Careers (in the Library), who can help you with completing the form, advice on where to apply, your personal statement, finance or anything else. You can take along or email your draft personal statement for comment (firstname.lastname@example.org). Only once this is competed can the college provide you with a reference. The deadline is 6 November (less than a month!), and the sooner you do it the more support and advice the college can provide.

Be AWARE of allergies Some students and staff at Haywards Heath suffer from severe and life threatening allergies to nuts and peanuts. In some cases the reaction can be triggered by a the smallest trace - for instance touching something that has previously been touched by someone who has been handling nuts. If you do eat nuts at college, please minimise the danger to others by washing your hands before touching objects which are used by other people - for instance keyboards and door handles.
