Although the official deadline for applying to University in the UK is in January, you might not know that universities still take applications after that date.
We’re able to take applications after January, and even if the course you were interested in is full, we can help you find an alternative that will be just as right for you.
We can accept applications right up until our courses start, please contact our admissions team to find out more about the application process for your chosen course.
Here are some of the most common myths about when you can apply to university:
Yes, you can still apply to university after the deadline, but there are two things to keep in mind. Firstly, applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you’re applying later than January, it’s best to do it as soon as you can. Later in the year, you may have less chance of getting an offer. Secondly, some courses may already be full by the time you apply. If that does happen though, you can still try a different course, or a different uni.
You can still apply for student finance even if you're applying late for university. You don't have to have finalised your university or your course to apply. Just note that the deadline to apply for finance to be guaranteed payment before the course starts is usually about the end of May, so if you apply later, you may find your funding comes through a bit later.
No matter which university you want to apply to, there’s a chance that a place on your chosen course is still available. The only way to guarantee you don’t get a place is if you never ask!
So, even if you've missed the deadline for applying to university, that doesn’t mean your uni dreams are over. There are still plenty of options available to you, and your perfect course could be right around the corner.
Applying to university after the deadline can be daunting, but it's definitely not impossible to find a place. Don't give up on your dream of going to university just because you missed the deadline - start your application today and see where it takes you!
