Application Process and Deadlines in the UK

UCAS Application Deadlines – Key Dates for 2018 Entry

March–September 2017 – During this time you should be researching and making choices about universities and courses. Open days, conferences and HE fairs/conventions take place between March and September/early October. Applications can be sent to UCAS from 6 September 2017.

15 October 2017 – Deadline (by 18:00 UK time) to send UCAS any applications for Cambridge or Oxford, or Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science/Medicine in any university.

15 January 2018 – Deadline (by 18:00 UK time) to send UCAS most other applications to be treated equally from the UK or elsewhere in the EU (except some Art and Design courses – check with the universities, and see the infographic below for more details).

24 March 2018 – Deadline (by 18:00 UK time) to send UCAS applications for some Art and Design courses (make sure to check; see infographic below).

If you miss the January deadline, you can still apply up until 30 June 2018 (by 18:00 UK time). But be aware, universities do not have to accept your application, and applications will be marked as ‘late’.

Many schools and colleges will encourage students to apply well before the 15 January deadline, with early November a common school/college deadline. This allows the school to add things such as references, and check personal statements and choices.

Cost of Studying in the UK

The costs incurred by a student can be divided into

  • Tuition fee of the course and
  • Living cost.

Tuition fee for both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes ranges from GBP 4000 to 18,000. Tuition for laboratory based courses is usually higher than classroom based courses. Medicine, Dentistry courses have much higher tuition fee.

The living cost in the UK is higher in big cities such as London and lower in smaller towns and cities. The UKBA has defined the living cost for the purpose of obtaining a student visa. This is as follows-

  • GBP 1000 per month in Central London
  • GBP 800 for outer London and the rest of the UK

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

Broadly there are three types of scholarships for studying in the UK available to Indian students-

  • Scholarships offered by UK institutions
  • UK Government sponsored
  • Private Trusts and funds

Studying and Living in the UK

Over the last 30 to 40 years the UK has changed greatly and has become much more cosmopolitan and multicultural. The UK is seen as a destination of great diversity with London being the hub for many internationals.

whilst you are staying in the UK, you will have a variety of accommodation options available to you. Your choices will depend largely on whether your college or university has halls of residence, what city you are located in, and the amount of your monthly budget.

When you sign up for a particular college or university, you will need to indicate that you will require accommodation (unless you have something pre-arranged). Do not assume that you will automatically be given accommodation, but generally as an international student you will be given priority over other students.

Halls of Residence

Halls are a great way to meet new people. They are large buildings, sometime divided into flats where you will have either a single room or share with another student. The room itself may be basic, and if it does not have an en-suite bathroom, communal ones will be provided. Generally the hall will provide basic furniture such as a bed, desk and chair and the rest you will have to supply.

Most halls of residence have a canteen where food is supplied (at a cost) to students. As an international student the food may be unfamiliar, but a good way to immerse yourself in the culture of the UK. Halls are either single or mixed sex, so if you have a preference for either you will need to make this very clear to your university from the beginning when choosing where to live.

Self-Catered Halls

Many international students prefer the self-catered option because it allows them the freedom to cook their own food and on their own schedule. Self-catered halls are very similar to standard halls of residence, but there is also a communal kitchen available to all hall residents. Be warned, though – communal kitchens can become places where only the stout of heart dare to venture!

Flats/ Houses

Typically students live in halls during their first year, as it makes adjusting to campus life much simpler and helps in making friends. In their second and third years, some students opt to move into a house or flat which is not part of the university.

If you do move into a flat or house, you will have to sign a tenancy agreement, which is a legal document outlining the terms of the tenancy. Be very careful to make sure you fully understand the terms and issues of the contract, and if you do have any doubts talk to your international student advisor who can assist you further.

A flat or house is generally more expensive than any other option, and you may find it hard to find accommodation that is close to your campus. However many students like the freedom to live where they choose, live with whom they like and choose the type of place they want to live in. With halls, you don’t have this flexibility.
