Next Steps: What to do once your application is submitted

Things to consider before finalising your university choices

Ready to take the next step?

Once you’ve submitted your UCAS application, it’s time to start planning your next steps. If you submit your application by the 26th January, you will hear back from the universities by the 19th May. You will then have until the 9th June to finalise your choices. Therefore, it’s a good idea to start thinking about the next steps from April.

Choosing your firm and insurance choices is an important decision and it can be hard to know what to do. We have put together resources for the top things to consider including; Accomodation and Location; Student Life & Campus Life.

Don’t forget, you can check the progress of your application at any time by going to UCAS Hub.
