Missed the September intake? Apply for the January start at UK universities
Have you missed the September intake application deadline? Do you feel frustrated at the thought of waiting for another year? Well, you don’t have to.
Many universities in the UK have a second intake in January, and you have just enough time to prepare a strong application.
When do you need to apply?
Give yourself enough time to prepare all the paperwork stress-free, make the right university choice, improve your English if you need to, put forward a good personal statement and apply for your visa. We suggest starting the process in August or September to make sure you get everything done on time.
If you want to know more about different stages of the application process, you can read about it here.
What programmes are available in January?
Even though the choice is slightly more limited than in September, there are still plenty of good study options available. It is well worth checking if your preferred university is on the list.
There is a larger choice for master’s and foundation programmes, however, you might need to be a little more flexible when it comes to starting a bachelor’s degree in winter.
Take this opportunity to discover new subject options and consider different variations of programmes you possibly did not know about. Remember, that subjects are different in different countries, so you might be missing out if you do not research what UK universities can offer.
