When to apply for university

UCAS keep an up-to-date record of deadlines for different types of courses each academic year.

Applying for university through Clearing

Some universities fill places they still have on their courses through a process called 'Clearing'.

You can apply if:  

  • you’re not already holding an offer from a college or university or you declined your offers 
  • the course still has places 

Clearing usually starts in early July and runs through to mid-October.
