The university admissions service, Ucas, is encouraging prospective students to make online applications.
The net can exclude as well as empower
Ucas says 98.5% of applications are now web-based. But it is conscious that not everyone has a personal computer with internet access.
So it has compiled a list of more than 900 centres around the UK which have agreed to offer free access to its web-based admissions process.
It is publishing the list for everyone to see - on its website.
"At Ucas, we understand that not everyone has access to a personal computer with an internet connection and, especially in schools, competition for these resources can be fierce," the website says.
