UK university application deadlines 2024/2025

2024/2025 Important UK University Application Deadlines

There are several dates and deadlines you will need to note in your diary throughout the university application process. This university application timeline provides an overview of when you can apply for undergraduate courses and highlights the UK university application deadlines for 2024.

Most courses in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine/Science, and Dentistry have much earlier deadlines and it is important that you are fully aware of those that impact on your application. These early deadlines are in place to ensure equal consideration for a place on the course, as they are typically among the most competitive and often involve an interview process.

Choosing and applying to the UK’s top universities is a complex and time-consuming process, therefore, we strongly recommend that students do not leave their application to the last minute. Please note that the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford also have earlier entry deadlines.

International students deadlines

In case you miss your deadline, feel free to connect with one of our consultants to explore alternatives and get personalized help and advice.

Many universities and colleges in the UK will continue to accept applications from international students until later in the year, close to the start date of the course. The specific timing of these extensions depends on the course and university you're interested in.

Don’t leave it too late though, because once your secure your university offer letter you’ll still need to apply for your Student Visa and your University Accommodation.
