UCAS application support for the new year 2023

2022 has been a long year, COVID-19 rules and regulations have been relaxed, schools and universities have been open almost as normal, and results day’s were a breeze as students were able to celebrate together at their school or college… Finally, it is beginning to feel like the world has been put to rights.

There have also been uncertain times in 2022. The news spread quickly devastating the UK and the world of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, changes in the government leave us all quivering in our boots and of course, our hearts continue to go out to everyone in Ukraine.

With the new year getting closer, pretty much on top of us in fact, it is important to be prepared for each UCAS deadline coming your way in 2023. We don’t want anyone receiving any nasty surprises…

The year is coming to a close and we hope you’ve had a very triumphant one, however, should you need any support or guidance now or in the new year, you can learn more about our services.

2023 entry deadline:

Deadlines are looming immediately in the new year; we start off strong with the majority of course applications needing to be entered by the 25th of January 2023.

Degree apprenticeships deadline:

Remember, if you’re applying for a degree-level apprenticeship, you can do so at any time in any year through UCAS – read more about degree-level apprenticeships in our blog by clicking here. You should treat this application like a job application as it is very similar.

Deferring to 2024 entry:

Deferring your entry means delaying your entry to university, but you can only do this by one year. This can be pre-planned or you might change your mind during the application process. You must meet your entry requirements/offer conditions by the 6th of September 2023 to ensure you can still begin university as planned in 2024.

2024 entry timeline based on 2023 entry timeline:

Dates for the 2024/2025 entry have not been confirmed by UCAS yet. However, let’s run through the 2023 entry timeline to recap and gain clarity for the possible timeline to come.
