The key dates for 2018 entry in the UK

Before beginning your application it is important to familiarise yourself with key UCAS deadlines. Some universities (Cambridge and Oxford) and courses (medicineveterinary medicine and dentistry) have much earlier deadlines and it is important you are fully aware of those which impact on your application.

Important UCAS Deadlines

All UCAS deadlines can be found below, but these are three key dates to become familiar with in the UCAS application cycle.

  • 15 October 2017 - All courses at Cambridge and Oxford and most medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry at all other institutions.
  • 15 January 2018 - The majority of UK courses. Some Art and Design courses have a March 24 deadline.
  • 24 March 2018 – The final Art & Design deadline.
