UNIVERSITY SEARCH AND APPLICATION
Higher Education in the UK is very prestigious and attracts students from all over the world. Universities offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees that cater to a wide range of interests and make the UK an attractive choice for students to pursue the career of their choice. Universities not only support students throughout their academic journey but also their personal development and wellbeing.
For undergraduate applications, the UK university application process is done through a centralised system called UCAS. UCAS allow students to apply to up to 5 universities in the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland). To apply, students would need to:
Register to UCAS and later submit the application form (including paying the application fee)
Meet any specific entry requirements for your selected courses
Write a great Personal Statement
Gather transcripts or grade certificates from previous years, and predicted grades for the current year (last year of schooling)
Appoint a teacher from school who will write a recommendation letter to be submitted with your application
Have current English Language certificates (either Cambridge Examinations, IELTS, TOEFL)
If applying for courses such as art, architecture or design, you will need to provide a portfolio. If applying to careers such as medicine, dentistry or law, external examinations would be required.
DEADLINES FOR ON-TIME APPLICATIONS 2022
15 October 2021 for 2022 entry at 18:00 (UK time) – To apply at any course at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, or for most courses in medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry. Students can add choices with a different deadline later, but it is important to remember that students can only have five choices in total.
26 January 2022 for 2022 entry at 18:00 (UK time) – for the majority of courses.
Note for international students:
While the 15 October deadline is fixed and late applications are not accepted, international students applying to the UK have the opportunity to apply beyond the January deadline.
However, many universities and colleges will continue to accept applications from international students until later in the year, although the earlier the applications are submitted, the more chances you will have, especially if you are aiming for top universities.
