Dual application to University and Conservatoire

My daughter wants to apply to read English and Drama and university but also to apply to Conservatoires. Does it all go on the one UCAS form with the usual 5 choices or does she apply for Conservatoires separately. If it is the latter can she apply to 5 universities and 5 conservatoire?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hi Mary,

She can apply through both routes, thus having 10 or 11 choices. Please be aware of the timelines for each process as deadline dates are different. For Conservatoires the deadline for applications is early October, for UCAS the deadline is January 15.
