Although the deadline for current Year 13 applications to most college and university-based higher education courses is for the form to be sent to UCAS by 15th January 2017 (except applications to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and applications for Medicine and Veterinary Science which is 15th October 2016) the school requires a minimum of two working weeks to process the forms. This is needed so that reference can be written and forms checked to ensure they are correct.
As a result the school deadlines are:
1st October 2016 for Oxford and Cambridge, and applications for Medicine and Veterinary Science
- 1st December 2016 to ensure that the form is with UCAS before Christmas and, due to the holiday, the final school deadline is the 12th December 2016.
Applications received after these dates will be processed as quickly as possible but we cannot guarantee that the UCAS deadline will be met.
Applications received after the above UCAS deadlines will still be forwarded to universities, providing they have vacancies, but they are not obliged to consider them. Please see the below links for more details.
