Application timetables


UCAS applications

There is a clear timetable of deadlines that apply to your UCAS application. Here, as an example, are the key dates for applications made in 2012/13 for courses starting in 2013.

Mid-September 2012: You can send your completed application to UCAS.

15 January 2013: Closing date for on-time UK/EU applications

Early May 2013: You should have heard from all your choices by now, if you applied by the January deadline.

Your own personal reply date: When you have heard from all your choices, you may have two or more offers. If so, you will have to decide which is your first and which your insurance offer, within a few days. Beware – this personal deadline for replying is important; your friends’ deadlines will be different.

25 February – 3 July 2013: Extra, when you can make more or different applications

30 June 2013: Closing date for international applications (non-EU) and for late UK/EU applications. Apply after that date and you will go into Clearing.

  • If you have met the conditions of any offer, you’re in. You will usually receive confirmation via UCAS within ten working days; if asked to do so, you must reply to your university within seven days.
  • If you have not met the conditions of your offer, UCAS will automatically place you in Clearing.
  • If you have exceeded the conditions of at least one of your offers, you can register for Adjustment.

Mid-July −20 September 2013: Clearing: Ring round the universities and colleges; get help from your school or your local careers office. Look for vacancies on the UCAS website and in the national press.
