Getting into Uni without UCAS

Because I had issues with money and family, I could not apply to UCAS before the deadline. I was wondering if there are any possible routes for me to get into a university this year?

Hello there,

You can still apply through UCAS for 2016 admission.

UCAS recommends that you contact universities first to check if there are spaces remaining on the courses you are interested in (so you don't waste a choice).

If you apply through UCAS you will then be eligible for Extra, Adjustment and/or Clearing.

You cannot be admitted to an undergraduate degree course in the UK without applying through UCAS.

Good luck,
