Applying after the UCAS January deadline

Don’t worry if you haven’t yet submitted your UCAS application, there’s still plenty of time to join us this year.

Every year many students choose to apply after the UCAS equal consideration deadline (this year’s deadline was Wednesday 26th January). In fact, anybody can apply after the UCAS deadline, including international students. Choosing to apply to higher education is a big decision and we understand that there are many more factors to consider this year.

On this page, you’ll find details about how the UCAS application process works, what to include in your application and what happens after you’ve applied.

How does the UCAS application process work?

When you apply to UCAS, you’ll be asked to submit up to five options for the courses you’d like to study at the institutes you’d like to join. You’ll find all our courses listed on the UCAS website, along with our course and campus codes. To make an application through UCAS, you’ll need to go to www.ucas.com and register before you can submit any choices.

What to include in your UCAS application

Your UCAS application will need to include the following:

    • A list of all your academic achievements, including any pending qualifications
    • A Personal Statement (maximum 4,000 characters)
    • A reference from either a teacher, tutor or employer

For more information about UCAS submissions, download our handy application and personal statement guides.

What happens after I’ve applied?

When we receive your UCAS application, we’ll invite you for an audition or interview. If it’s not possible for you to attend in person, other options available include a Zoom interview or a demo submission. If you meet the entry criteria for the course you’ve selected, we’ll offer you a place.

International applicants

After you’ve applied via UCAS, you’ll be invited to attend an audition or interview. If it’s not possible for you to attend in person, other options available include a Zoom interview or a demo submission.

What happens next?

If your audition is successful, we’ll provide you with a ‘conditional offer’ (which means it’s pending until we receive your exam results and certificates) or an ‘unconditional offer’ (meaning you’ve met the entry criteria for the course and don’t need to give us any additional information).

Your offer will be announced via UCAS’s ‘Hub’ facility.
