2010 Entry: Applying for Undergraduate Art & Design Courses Through UCAS

Applicants who are opting to apply for full-time undergraduate art and design courses will now be thinking about making their applications through UCAS. There are two application deadlines for art and design courses. Universities decide which deadline to use for each of their courses – these are either 15th January or 24th March.

If you’re unsure as to which application deadline date applies to the university courses you are looking at, the UCAS Course Search facility displays the application deadline.

If you decide to apply for art and design courses with different deadlines, you can submit your application before 15 January for courses with that deadline, then add further course choices before the 24 March deadline using UCAS Track as long as you haven’t used all five choices on your UCAS application form.
