How to apply after the January UCAS deadline

Missed the January UCAS deadline? Don’t worry, it’s not too late to apply to study our specialist degree courses this September. You could join some of the country’s most satisfied students and turn your passion into a career.

There are two ways you can still apply…

  • UCAS Apply

    You can use the UCAS Apply service if you haven’t submitted a UCAS application yet or haven’t used all five choices on your UCAS application. You might be charged for this service.You’ll need a UCAS Code for each course you apply for. You’ll find these at the top of each course page. Our institution code is S34 

  • UCAS Extra

    UCAS Extra is a second stage in the UCAS application year that is available for applicants that have not found a suitable course offer so far. So, if you have applied through UCAS, used all five choices on your application and aren’t holding any offers, you might be able to apply through Extra for another course. Extra lets you apply for courses with vacancies between the end of February and the end of June.

    Who is eligible?

    • You will already have applied to UCAS and made five choices
    • You will have received decisions from all these choices
    • You will either have had no offers or declined all the offers you have received.

    Note: If you decline your offers and add an Extra choice, you will not be able to accept any of your original choices later.

    How to apply

    If you are eligible for Extra, a button will appear on your UCAS Track screen which you can use to apply for a course in Extra.

    The UCAS Search Tool will tell you which courses have vacancies – just click on the left hand side to show the courses available in Extra

    Choose a course and enter the details in UCAS Track.

What happens next?

If you apply to Sparsholt and we offer you a place, you can choose whether or not to accept it. If you accept an offer from us or another university, you will be committed to it, which means that you cannot apply anywhere else. So you do need to think about this carefully.

If you decline our offer, or we turn you down, you can apply for a different choice through Extra until it closes for this year. Please check UCAS track for the exact dates for this year.

If you don’t get an offer in Extra, don’t worry! You can apply through our Clearing process, which gives you another opportunity to apply for vacancies.
