However, if you intend to study in the UK as a part time student, you’ll need to contact the schools individually to get more details regarding admission. For convenience, UCAS uses the online application method. They’ll work closely with students and schools to ensure all application materials are sent packaged to colleges.

*February –September: Use this extended time frame to research institutions, programs that meet your academic interest. Most college open days run during this period, make the most of these visits by visiting universities and exploring their facilities.
*15 October: This is the deadline for submission of application materials to UCAS. You can’t hope to get into any medical programs of top notch universities if your application materials don’t get to UCAS by this time.
*15 January: This date is termed “late application deadline” by UCAS. Applications are marked late at this time. Applicants are highly encouraged to submit their applications before the January 15. Applying before this deadline allows schools to carefully go through your personal essays and course preference.
*7 May: Most colleges will send admission decisions to UCAS, please reply with acceptance or denial replies to any such college. If UCAS does not receive your reply, they’ll rightly decline the admission on your behalf.
