UCAS key dates

Week 13

2 December 2019

The UCAS deadline for submitting your application is just six weeks away! If you're gearing up to submit yours - or if you already have - there are a few important dates after submission that you need to be aware of. And guess what, we're here to help!

Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines

The deadline for submitting most UCAS applications is in six weeks! There, we thought we'd get that out of the way right from the start. It sounds like it's far away but you'll be surprised how fast it will sneak up.

Scared kid

If you're applying to uni, you should be well aware that the deadline for submitting your application to UCAS is 15 January 2020

If you've not submitted your UCAS application yet then don't worry, we've got loads of information on things like choosing the right course, how to register on UCAS, and writing your personal statement to help you meet the UCAS deadline and to avoid panicking on 14 January because you've left things to the last minute.

after the UCAS deadline

Once you've submitted your application, it's the waiting game. Be aware that there are some dates you should keep in mind that relate to any offers you might receive from your chosen unis.
