31 January 2024 is the main UCAS deadline. You can still apply via UCAS up until 30 June, but you may not be able to get on to the course you want at your preferred university - why risk it?Kent offer holder? Apply for accommodation now.
February 2024 - UCAS Extra opens for any applicants who received no offers, or who rejected all their offers.
If we have offered you a place, you can come and meet us at an Applicant Event. You may also be invited for an interview.
Funding applications will open via Student Finance England in late February. It’s a good idea to check eligibility criteria and apply as soon as you can. You don’t need to know which university you’re going to before making an application.
If you applied to Kent by the 31 January, we will send you our decision by the end of March. If you accept the offer, don’t forget to apply for accommodation! You can look around in person at an Applicant Event or take a virtual tour of our rooms.
If you've heard back from all the universities you applied to, you can start weighing up your options. Maybe make a pros and cons list for each of them based on what you know. You don’t have to make any choices until your last decision comes in.
If you applied by the October or January deadline, you’ll receive a decision in May. You must make your firm and insurance decisions by 6 June. If you're unsure, revisit your priorities and speak to your support group.
