Applying for an undergraduate degree after the UCAS deadline

© 2011 David Franklin

The official UCAS application deadlines (15 October and 15 January) to apply for an undergraduate degree in the UK have now passed.

Luckily, many universities understand that international students may not know about these deadlines and therefore they allow you to apply until the end of June. However, please note two important pieces of information:

  • Popular courses such as law, engineering and management fill up quickly. Apply as soon as possible to give yourself a chance of gaining a place on the course
  • You cannot apply for medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine after the UCAS deadline (15 October). If you want to study these courses, you will have to wait and apply for the following year

How to apply after the UCAS deadline?

  1. Find a course

Search for courses to find the right course and university for you.

Before you submit an application, you should contact the university to find out if they have spaces on the course. You can do this by registering on Study London. Once you are registered, simply click on ‘contact’ when you are on the course listing and send your question to the university.

  1. Apply for the course

Once the university has confirmed that late applications are accepted, you can submit your application via UCAS. Read our UCAS application advice for more information.

Some universities may also accept direct applications through their own application system. Please follow the university’s instructions if they have asked you to apply directly.

  1. Check the Tier 4 student visa requirements

If you are an international student from outside the European Union you will need a Tier 4 student visa to study in London. Before you submit your course application, please make sure you can meet the Tier 4 student visa requirements.
