What is UCAS Extra?
UCAS Extra is a free service that lets you apply for undergraduate courses if you've already used up your original 5 choices.
If you want to join us this autumn but don't have a place or simply changed your mind about what to study, UCAS Extra is the route for you.
You can apply through UCAS Extra until 4 July 2022. Any applications after this date will need to be through UCAS Clearing.
Who can use UCAS Extra?
UCAS Extra can be used by both UK and international students.
If you’re an international student who hasn’t yet completed a UCAS application, you can contact one of our in-country representatives for support.
Applying through UCAS Extra
Step 1. Choose your course
Browse our courses with places available to find the right one for you.
Step 2. Check the entry requirements
Read the entry requirements in the ‘How to apply’ section of your chosen courses webpage to check you meet the minimum criteria. Be mindful that many practice-based courses ask for a digital portfolio as part of your application.
Step 3. Apply through UCAS Extra
Once you've chosen a course, you must apply through the UCAS Hub by adding your extra course choice.
Step 4. Check your emails
Once you’ve submitted your course choice through UCAS Hub, it will be sent to us at UAL. You'll then receive a confirmation email with your login details for the UAL Portal, followed shortly by any additional requirements we may need from you.
What happens next?
Once our admissions team have reviewed and assessed your application, they'll contact you through the UCAS Hub to let you know if you’ve been successful.
If you need to get in contact with our admissions team about your application, you can do so through the UAL Portal.
