Everything you need to know about UCAS Extra

Who is UCAS Extra for?

If the UCAS deadline has passed and you've applied to university through UCAS but you haven't received any offers from your five choices or you've declined all of the offers you've received from your five choices, 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 a course you're really passionate about.

It's not too late to apply and join our real London community this September!

When does UCAS Extra run?

What to do if...

You haven't used all of your 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 Hub (provided it's before the end of June and you haven't accepted or declined any offers already). If this sounds like you, head to the UCAS website to find out more.

You haven't yet applied to university...

If you haven't yet made an application via UCAS for autumn 2023, it's not too late to start. You can browse our undergraduate courses and apply through UCAS in the normal way up until 4 July. After 4 July 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 until 4 July. We have places available on a wide range of courses, from undergraduate BA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) degrees to four-year degrees with an integrated foundation year 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 Hub. Use this to submit your application to us.

Have you considered starting your degree with a foundation year?

Have you considered an accelerated degree?

Fast-track your learning and start your career sooner with one of our accelerated degrees. Here at London Met, our accelerated degrees allow you to complete a full undergraduate degree in two years rather than three, giving you the opportunity to save more on course fees and living costs.
