UCAS Extra

Who is UCAS Extra for?

If you've applied to university through UCAS but you haven't received any offers or you've declined all the offers you received, you're in the right place. UCAS Extra is a fantastic opportunity to rethink what you want to do or where you want to go – and find something you're really going to love this September!

But I haven't used all my UCAS choices yet...

If you haven't used all five of your choices in UCAS, you may not need UCAS Extra just yet – you should be able to add more choices in UCAS Track (provided it's before the end of June and you haven't accepted or declined any offers already). If this sounds likes you, head to the UCAS website to find out more.

But I haven't yet applied to university...

If you haven't yet made an application via UCAS for September 2018, it's not too late to start. You can browse our undergraduate courses and apply through UCAS in the normal way up until 30 June. After 30 June you can still apply but your application will be processed through a process called Clearing.

How to apply through UCAS Extra

UCAS Extra is free and allows you to apply to one course at a time – so choose wisely! You'll be able to apply from the end of February to early July. We have places available on a wide range of courses, from undergraduate BA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) degrees to four-year extended degrees and two-year accelerated degrees, so you're sure to find something you'll love. If you're eligible for UCAS Extra, an "Add an Extra choice" button will appear when you sign in to UCAS Track. Use this to submit your application to us.
