We are still accepting applications to undergraduate courses starting September 2024.

The UCAS equal consideration deadline was 6pm on 31 January 2024. But don’t worry if you missed the deadline, you’ve still got time to apply to start university in September. The deadline for new applications is 30 June 2024 but remaining places won’t be available forever so be sure to apply as soon as your application is ready.

Applications for all full-time undergraduate programmes must be submitted using this online facility. The UCAS website allows applicants to search for suitable courses whilst providing detailed information and support as you complete your application. 

UCAS Extra is now open

If you have used all five choices, and you're not holding any offers, either because you did not receive or have declined your offers, you can add another choice using UCAS Extra.

This is another chance for you to gain a place at university or college. During this period you'll be able to apply to additional universities, or courses, one at a time.

UCAS Extra closes 4 July 2024.
