Higher Education Deadlines
The College operates internal deadlines in order to ensure applications arrive at UCAS on time. For 2013 entry the internal and UCAS deadlines are:
For Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science
September 25 – internal deadline
October 15 – UCAS deadline
For most other courses
October 24 – internal deadline
January 15 – UCAS deadline
For a minority of Art courses (These deadlines apply to students who have only applied to the courses with a 24 March deadline. If they have some choices with a 15 January deadline they must adhere to the October deadline)
February 1 – internal deadline
March 24 – UCAS deadline
We advise all students to complete and submit their applications on time in order to stand the best chance of securing offers at their chosen universities. It takes approximately two weeks for references to be circulated and written so students should be aware that their form will not be sent off the day after it was handed in to their Senior Tutor.
