If you’re thinking about heading to University after your apprenticeship remember to add the following key application dates to your diary:

  • 15 January for the majority of courses (18:00)
  • 30 June – the final deadline.

(The above dates are when all completed applications, including a reference should be sent to UCAS.)

Universities and Colleges guarantee to consider your application if UCAS receive it by the appropriate deadline. Applications received after the deadlines, up until 30 June, will only be considered by universities and colleges if they still have vacancies for the course(s) you have selected. Applications received after 30 June will will go directly into Clearing.
