Picture of our UCSH studentsMissed the 15th January UCAS deadline? It's not too late to apply for University Centre St Helens this September 2017...

Don't panic – there's still time to apply.

Here are your options:

If you've submitted five choices and are not holding any offers

You can apply to study with us via UCAS Extra using institution code S51, which offers many students another chance to secure a place on their perfect course before Clearing opens. UCAS Extra is available between 25th February and 2nd July and you can apply to one course at a time. If you're eligible to apply through UCAS Extra, you will be able to see this option as a button when you login to UCAS Track.

What is UCAS Extra?

UCAS Extra is the second stage in the UCAS application year that is available for applicants that have not found a suitable course offer so far. If you have already applied through UCAS and either had no offers or declined any offers you have received you may be able to apply for another course through Extra, which opens 25 February 2017. 

You will know if Extra is available to you – it will show up when you sign in to track your application. 

The last date to apply through UCAS Extra is 4 July 2017. 

If you've already applied via UCAS but haven't used all your choices

If you've submitted fewer than five choices and haven't accepted a place, you can still add more choices to bring your total up to five. We consider applications received after the deadline on first come first served basis, so some courses may start to fill up and you should aim to have your application with us as soon as possible.

If you've not yet applied to University

If you have not submitted your application yet you can still apply through UCAS in the same way as all other applicants.

Please note that to start in September 2017 the final deadline for all UCAS applications is 30th June 2017. Applications received after this date are entered in Clearing.
