UCAS will start receiving applications from mid-September for entry in the following autumn.

Applications from UK-based applicants should reach UCAS by 15 January, although, at their discretion, institutions may consider applications received up until 30 June. Later deadlines apply to international applicants but early application is recommended for popular and oversubscribed courses.

You may list up to five choices of institution/course on your UCAS form, except for medicine and dentistry where you can apply for up to four courses in these subjects; the other two choices can be for other subjects or left blank. If you wish to apply to the same institution for more than one degree course, you should make a separate entry for each choice. You should list your choices in alphabetical order or the Institution code name taking care to clearly enter the details for courses and institutions.

The institution code for Queen Mary is Q50 .

Institutions will only be able to access relevant choices on your UCAS record, details of applications made to other institutions will only be made available after you have replied to your offers. It may be helpful for applicants to know that selectors at Queen Mary will not be influenced by the presence or absence of an indication on the UCAS entry form that it would be possible for the applicant to live at home.

UCAS Extra

Queen Mary University of London welcomes enquiries and applications from anyone wishing to take part in the UCAS Extra Scheme.

What is UCAS Extra?

If you find yourself without an offer, for whatever reason, and you have used all five choices already, Extra helps you to have an additional choice through UCAS. This means you do not have to wait until Clearing to continue to find a place.

The Extra procedure operates from mid-March to the end of June.

Can I take part in UCAS Extra?

Yes! If you

  • have had unsuccessful or withdrawal decisions from all five of your choices
    OR
  • have cancelled outstanding choices and have no offers
    OR
  • have declined all your offers.

Remember that you must have used all five choices on your UCAS application form to become eligible for Extra. If you initially used fewer than five choices you are able to add choices in the main scheme.

Extra vacancies will appear on the UCAS website.

We will consider Extra applications for all our courses except the following:

  • A100 Medicine
  • A101 Medicine (Graduate Entry)
  • A200 Dentistry

See our Study Abroad pages for more details.

Transfer and advanced entry

In some departments it is possible for students to join undergraduate degree programmes at the beginning of the second or, sometimes, the beginning of the third year of studies. If you are applying for advanced status on the basis of an approved post-A-level qualification, such as the BTEC HND, you should apply via UCAS in the usual way. If you wish to transfer your degree studies from another UK higher education institution you will be considered on the basis of your current syllabus, academic references and results. All candidates must have the approval of, and be eligible to proceed to the next year of studies at, their current institution. Applications must be submitted via UCAS.

The Admissions and Recruitment Office is happy to advise on enquiries from potential transfer and international entry applicants.

The classification of your award will be in accordance with the regulations for your programme of study, and will normally be based on the work that you complete at Queen Mary.
