Application deadline for uni and college fast approaching
3:02pm Monday 25th June 2012 in News
UCAS is reminding Mid Devon teens that they can still apply to university or college up until June 30.
The ‘on time’ deadline for guaranteed consideration passed on January 15, but UCAS will still send applications to institutions if they are submitted by June 30.
That means you could still be successful if places are available on your chosen courses.
Courses with places are shown on the UCAS website (www.ucas.com).
Applications received after June 30 will go into 'clearing', so anyone still thinking about going to a specific higher education institution should keep this key date in mind.
Last year over 100,000 people applied after the January deadline.
Andrea Robertson, director of Customer Operations at UCAS said: “Although UCAS urges people to apply by the ‘equal consideration’ deadline in January, it’s still not too late make a choice.
“It might be that you simply didn’t consider going to university earlier in the year, and then found it was an attractive option after further research.
“Every year places remain available on a range of courses, so if your application is strong you have a good chance of being successful.
“Choosing a course is a life-changing decision so discussing the options with parents, teachers and careers advisers will help to achieve the right outcome.
“Just remember that any application we receive after 30 June will only be forwarded to universities as part of the Clearing process.”
