This is the final edition of the current series of Go Higher, published in association with UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Over the last eight weeks we have provided advice for prospective university or college students of all ages, as well as parents and teachers. The series has been designed to ensure that all those wishing to enter higher education next year have the most up-to-date, relevant and valuable advice available.

Subjects covered include: how to apply; student finances; survival kits; study skills; gap years; and a special supplement for mature students. If you would like to obtain a copy of one of these supplements, please call Chris Brown at The Independent (0171-510 6176).

Enquiries regarding applications to universities and colleges should be directed to the UCAS Enquiries Team (01242 227788) or e-mail: enquiries@ucas.ac.uk
