Mid-UCAS Application Cycle Activities: Interviews, Offers and Late Applications

With competition for places on undergraduate courses fiercer than ever this year, it’s important that applicants are well-prepared for upcoming interviews and the subsequent decision making process once offers have been received from institutions. If you’ve not yet applied, you’ll need to think about doing so if you’d still like to be considered for a course commencing this Autumn.

Interviews and Offers

You may find the following articles we previously posted of help if you’re about to start attending interviews or are wondering about choosing which offers to accept:

Late Applications

If you’ve not yet applied and are thinking about studying at university in Autumn 2010, there may still be the chance to apply as a late applicant if there are still vacancies on the course or courses you are interested in. You can use the course search facility on the UCAS website to search for courses of interest. The search results returned will show you a list of courses (and the universities offering them) based on the search criteria you have specified. You will be able to tell whether a course is closed or not by whether or not the letter ‘C’ is shown against a particular course. Where the letter ‘C’ is shown against a course, this means that the course is closed to further applications at the time and you cannot, therefore, enter this particular course choice on your UCAS application form. If a course is available, you are free to add that course as a choice on your form.

Whatever stage of the process you’re at, action is key to ensuring that you optimise your chances of success in securing a university place.
