Considering your UCAS application with equal consideration

We have extended the equal consideration deadline to 30 June 2021. This is in recognition of the ongoing disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and education settings and as part of our commitment to widening access.

  • We will extend equal consideration for UCAS applications for all undergraduate courses commencing in September 2021.
  • All applications received, through both the main UCAS cycle and UCAS extra, will be considered equally until the extended deadline of 30 June 2021.
  • Entry criteria will be reviewed and may be subject to change for applications received through UCAS Clearing.

We understand that now more than ever students need flexibility to achieve their ambitions. We hope that by extending the deadline you can think through your future options with less pressure.
