When to apply for a degree commencing in September 2016

Applications for full-time courses leading to a degree commencing in September 2016 must be submitted to UCAS between:

  • 1 September 2015 and 15 January 2016 for UK/EU students
  • 1 September 2015 and 30 June 2016 for International students

We will do our best to consider applications submitted late (between 15 January and 30 June). However, our ability to do this depends on the availability of places, and the number and quality of applications received, which will vary from course to course.

If you are applying for entry to Medicine or Dentistry, you must apply by 15 October 2015.

If you are unsure whether you will be classed as a UK/EU or an Overseas/International fee payer, read our fee status definitions for more information:
