Applying to university is actually quite a straight-forward process. Unlike college applications, you don’t need to apply to each university individually. Instead, you’ll use an online system called UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) to apply to all your chosen courses at once.


Universities want to know that you:



  • Are enthusiastic about studying their course and will be well suited to the work it involves.

This information will be passed on to the universities you apply to via your UCAS application form.



What is the deadline for submitting my UCAS Application?


The deadline for most courses starting in September is January 31st in the year that you would be starting university.



However, some courses have earlier deadlines including:


Some music courses at RCS: October 1st

Medicine/Dentistry/Vet Medicine: October 16th

Any course at Oxford or Cambridge: October 16th
