The January intake is ideal for students who want to transfer courses, defer entry from September, or wish to start later in the academic year. Every year over 10,000 courses are available for the January intake.

September is the main intake in the UK each academic year. The traditional deadlines, as seen above, all apply to September start programmes.

The 15th January is the first deadline of the year for undergraduate study, with the latest deadline 30th June. For medicine and dentistry programmes, the deadline is 15th October.

Deadlines follow the same calendar as undergraduate study, but postgraduate deadlines vary. Contact an SI-UK consultant to find out the deadline for your desired course.
