Class of 2022: It’s the final call for students who wish to apply to UK or Northern Ireland colleges

This week really is the final call for anyone who is considering studying in the UK or Northern Ireland. The deadline for the majority of applications to UCAS — the British equivalent of the CAO — is normally January 15 but, this year, the deadline has been extended to January 26. This excludes applications to Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary studies, as well as all courses in Oxford and Cambridge, the deadline for which was October 15.

The UCAS application is quite different from the CAO form. The CAO does not call for any significant personal information from applicants. ndeed, the most challenging part of completing the CAO is considering the courses for which to apply and in what order to place them. The UCAS application is quite different and institutions want to know much more about the individual candidate. They gather this information from tools such as a personal statement, an academic reference and predicted grades. As a result, it can take longer to complete an application to a good standard. So, if any individual is still considering applying to UCAS, it really is time to get it completed if you have not already done so.
