It's not too late to Apply!

Thinking about starting uni this year? It’s not too late to apply! The last date you can send an application with up to five choices is 30 June - so if you’ve made a last minute decision about going to university, there are a four things to consider before you submit your application.

1. Search for vacancies
Universities can still consider applications as long as they have vacancies. In our search tool you can find courses that are still accepting applications by selecting ‘Courses open to new applicants.’ Before you add a choice however, it’s worth giving the uni a quick call to double check. The last thing you want to do is apply to a uni that may not have any places left to offer!

2. The application form
You need to complete an application so the unis can look at your details. This includes writing a personal statement and getting a reference. If you need help completing the application all the advice you need can be found in one place - our website.

3. Prepare for interviews
Some courses require an interview, even at this stage of the year. But don’t worry, they don’t need to be stressful. Head on over to our blog post full of handy interview tips.

4. Check for open days
If you haven’t already, it’s always a good idea to try and attend an open day to get a better idea of what the uni has to offer and to meet the tutors to get an understanding of the course. All upcoming open days are listed here. Check out our top tips on how to make the most of your visit before you attend one.
