Now that you’ve decided to enroll in UK universities in 2022 or 2023, learn how to submit a successful UCAS application by the deadline.

You are prepared to start the application process for September intake 2022 once you have carefully considered all the information available, attended university open days in person or virtually, and spoken with friends, family, course tutors, and college career advisers about your degree options.

The central agency in charge of handling applications for full-time undergraduate study at UK universities is the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

Either use the UCAS online system to register and finish your application, or do it through your school or institution, and they will send it to UCAS on your behalf. The latter, however, requires that the deadline be confirmed because it might be earlier than the one established by UCAS.

Visit UCAS – Students to submit an online application for full-time undergraduate studies. You can begin, continue, and track your application from this page. Additionally, you can get assistance with completing your UCAS application.

When you apply, you can choose up to five different universities and courses. However, each cycle only allows for one application. The deadline for UCAS to receive all 2022 applications is Thursday, June 30, 2022.

You may track the status of your application by signing on to UCAS Track after it has been submitted and you have received a welcome email. Simply enter your unique ID and password to use this online system.

Then, you’ll be able to see if you’ve received any offers for a spot on a course or an invitation to an interview. You can also reply to any offers you get from the universities you’ve chosen.

Before the UCAS application deadline, you need to have the following things:

  • Filled in all your details, qualifications, and selected courses.
  • Write your statement of purpose. Check out the statement of purpose for UK university applications.
  • Include a written reference or recommendation letter from a teacher or professional who knows you academically.
  • You have paid your UCAS application fee.

If you somehow miss the opportunity to apply for September 2022, don’t worry. You can still go for the January 2023 intake at your desired universities. International applicants still use UCAS, but you might also need to submit your evidence of credentials to the university. By speaking with your top choice, find out the institution’s stance on receiving findings.
