As part of our preparations for Confirmation and Clearing, we will be carrying out maintenance and performance improvement activity which will result in UCAS Apply and Track being unavailable from 18:00 on Friday 29 May, until 00:01 on Sunday 31 May (UK time).
We recommend you ask the universities whether they have vacancies first – especially for courses with a 15 October deadline, as it’s unusual for them to consider late applications because their courses are really competitive.
- 30 June, 18:00 (UK time) – the final deadline for late applications with course choices
- 20 September, 18:00 (UK time) – it’s still okay to apply by this date, but instead of choosing courses, you’ll be entered into ‘Clearing’ – the process universities and colleges use to fill any places they still have on their courses
While the 15 October deadline is usually inflexible, don’t worry if you miss the January deadline.
Don’t leave it too late though, because if you do get a place, you’ll still need to arrange a visa and your accommodation.
Because part-time study ptions vary by duration, study mode and location, you'll need to contact course providers direct to apply. This way you can discuss your requirements and your experiecne to see which course provider will be the most suitable for you.
Our part-time course search is available each year from July until September. Unlike full-time applications, you don't need to find a course as far in advance, so the application process is much shorter.
