2023 UCAS deadlines

There are many different UCAS Application deadlines depending on what course and level you wish to study. Generally, international and Indian students can submit their application up to June 30th each academic year. 

UCAS Extra

If you received no offers from your five UCAS choices or changed your mind about which courses and institutions you wish to apply to, UCAS Extra allows you to add another choice to your application. UCAS Extra opens each February and lasts until July. If you still do not have an offer after the July deadline, you are eligible to enter UCAS Clearing.

Clearing FAQ

Clearing starts on July 5 and ends on October 18.

Yes, clearing is available to Indian and international students.

Contact your university/college to find out if they have vacancies and how to apply for one. If you don’t meet their entry requirements, it's important that you let them know early on so you can see if there are any spaces available on the appropriate degree. If your course doesn't have any vacancies, you'll need to add Clearing choice when you apply. You can only add one clearing choice at a time.

Digging into the course details should be your priority rather than grabbing the first offer. While going through the course details, make sure you check the module thoroughly along with comparing course stats such as Student satisfaction scores, graduate employment rates, and average graduate salary. Also, don’t forget to relate the course with your initial choice to ensure it matches your interest.
