So what are their options?


If your child hasn’t submitted a UCAS application yet or has applied to other institutions through UCAS but not used all 5 of their choices, they have until 30 June to apply for up to five courses at the same time. 

Register at UCAS to start an application.


Check out UCAS

If they’ve already applied through UCAS and used all five choices, there are two alternative options:

UCAS Extra and Clearing.

  • UCAS Extra: Runs from Wednesday 28 February to Thursday 4 July 2024.

UCAS Extra gives the applicant the chance to add another choice to their UCAS application.

Discover how to use UCAS Extra here.

  • Clearing: Runs from Friday 5 July to Monday 21 October 2024.

If they have missed their conditions or had a change of heart about their offers, clearing provides another opportunity to secure their dream place. Clearing matches the applicant with university places that are yet to be filled.
