Important UCAS Application Deadline Dates for 2017


Applying to start university in 2017?

Knowing it can be arduous to keep track of all the different Ucas deadlines. To help you out, here’s a list to keep you one step ahead!


January 15, 2017

Deadline for most undergraduate courses. If you want to make sure your application is given equal consideration by universities, today is the day you have to submit the final product to Ucas. This should be done by 6pm (GMT).

February 25, 2017

Ucas Extra opens. If you applied to the January 15 deadline, used all your five options, but don’t hold any offers, Ucas Extra gives candidates who haven’t secured a place a chance to add another option to their application.

Important note: you can only add one extra option at a time and the system will close on July 4.

May 5, 2017

University deadline to reply to your application. If you applied to the January 15 deadline, universities have until today to reply to you. If you do not hear back from them about your application by the end of the day, Ucas will decline the application on their behalf.

June 30, 2017

This is the final day you can apply to university for 2017 entry. If you submit your first application (ie not Ucas Extra) to Ucas by 6pm (GMT) they will forward your application on to your chosen universities.
