UK university application deadlines

2023 Important UK University Application Deadlines

There are several dates and deadlines you will need to put into your diary throughout the university application process. This university application timeline gives you an overview of when you can apply for undergraduate courses and highlights the UK university application deadlines for 2023.

Most courses in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine/Science, and Dentistry have much earlier deadlines and it is important that you are fully aware of those which impact on your application. This early deadline is to allow students equal consideration for a place on the course, as they are normally one of the most competitive, with many requiring an interview process.

Choosing and applying to UK’s top universities is a complex and time-consuming process, therefore we strongly recommend students not to leave their application to the last minute, be informed that University of Cambridge and University of Oxford also have earlier entry deadlines.
