What to do if you miss the UCAS deadline

  • First off, don't panic! We promise it isn't the end of the world, and you still have some options.
  • The best thing to do is to familiarise yourself with the different options you have and decide what the best next step is for you.
  • It is possible to still apply to university up until 30 June. Some courses that have a high demand may not consider late applications however there are some that will, so it's definitely worth a shot!
  • Don't be afraid to pick up the phone and call a university to see whether they would still consider your application. This is often the quickest way to find out, and means you won't waste one of your options applying somewhere if they definitely don't have a place to offer you.
  • If you're thinking of applying to Kingston University and haven't had a chance to look around yet, there's still time! You can book onto our next open day.
  • If you're not able to make an open day, we hold tours of all of our campuses regularly too which you can book onto.
  • Alternatively, a very easy way to get a feel for Kingston University is to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see our latest news and photos.
  • If you have applied to university but not received any offers, or you've decided you want to reject any offers you've been given and apply somewhere else, you can use something called UCAS Extra which will show up when you sign into UCAS.
  • Another popular way to get a place at university is through Clearing. Between July and September, any remaining empty places on courses are available on a first come, first served basis. If you already have your exam results, you can apply straight away when Clearing opens in July. Otherwise you'll have to wait until you get your exam results, which is why Clearing gets particularly busy on A-level results day. Courses available through this system will be available on the UCAS website and updated regularly.
  • Although you may feel stressed about the situation, try to stay calm, do your research and act as quickly as you can if you want the best chance of securing a place on the course of your choice. Good luck!
