Lincolnshire students have three days left to apply for university places

STUDENTS in Lincolnshire are being reminded that there are just three days left to apply for university places.

And UCAS, the organisation responsible for managing applications to higher education courses in the UK, is urging people not to miss out when the deadline arrives on Saturday.

The ‘on time’ deadline for guaranteed consideration passed on January 15 but UCAS will still send applications to institutions if they are submitted by June 30.

That means you could still be successful if places are available.

Applications received after Saturday will go into clearing.

Last year over 100,000 people applied after the January deadline.

UCAS director of customers operations Andrea Robertson said: “Although UCAS urges people to apply by the ‘equal consideration’ deadline in January, it is still not too late make a choice.

“It might be that you simply didn’t consider going to university earlier in the year, and then found it was an attractive option after further research.

“Every year places remain available on a range of courses, so if your application is strong you have a good chance of being successful.

“Choosing a course is a life-changing decision so discussing the options with parents, teachers and careers advisers will help to achieve the right outcome.

“Just remember that any application we receive after June 30 will only be forwarded to universities as part of the clearing process.”
