If you don’t meet the main application deadline, you can still apply for many courses. We recommend you contact us and we can universities whether they have vacancies first – especially for courses with a 15 October deadline, as it’s unusual for them to consider late applications because their courses are really competitive.
30 June, 18:00 (UK time) – the final deadline for late applications with course choices
20 September, 18:00 (UK time) – it’s still okay to apply by this date, but instead of choosing courses, you’ll be entered into ‘Clearing’ – the process universities and colleges use to fill any places they still have on their courses
While the 15 October deadline is usually inflexible, don’t worry if you miss the January deadline.
Many universities and colleges will continue to accept applications from international students until later in the year, nearer the beginning of the course.
Don’t leave it too late though, because if you do get a place, you’ll still need to arrange a visa and your accommodation.
