What’s the UCAS deadline?

Applications for all UCAS Undergraduate courses, except those with a 15 October deadline, should arrive at UCAS by 18:00 (UK time) on 26 January.

This is known as the 'equal consideration' deadline, which means course providers must consider all applications received by this time equally.

Universities and colleges do not have to consider applications received after the deadline, although you can still apply after this date if they have spaces available once the on-time applications have been considered.

You can apply for up to five courses with your UCAS application and you should include:

  • your details
  • your qualifications
  • your course choices (you can choose up to five courses) 
  • a personal statement
  • the name of a reference person

Once you’ve received decisions from the universities and colleges about a place on the courses you’ve chosen, you can then make your firm and insurance choices.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure where to start or if you have questions about the process, we’re here to help. Why not join us for our ‘Making UCAS Applications’ webinar where we’ll talk you through it and give you tips for how to make the most of your application.

The information printed reflects the College’s understanding at this time but students should check the current position and their personal circumstances before committing to a College course. Students are required to pay fees by the due date and failure to do so will lead to their results not being presented to the relevant examination board, and therefore result in them not receiving their certificate.
