If you're not holding any offers and have used up all your UCAS choices, then Extra could be for you. There's still time to apply to BU and study by the sea this September.

Can I still apply to university to start in September 2024?

Yes! We’re still accepting applications onto our courses and you can apply via UCAS Extra.

What is UCAS Extra?

UCAS Extra offers another opportunity to apply for a university place after the 31 January equal consideration deadline. Extra opened on Wednesday 28 February and runs until Thursday 4 July.

Who can use UCAS Extra?

If you included five choices on your application, have received decisions from all five, and weren’t accepted, or if you declined the offers you received, you will be able to use Extra. If you did not use all your choices in your initial application, you don't need to use Extra, you can just sign in to your application and add another choice, as long as it’s before 30 June, and you’ve not accepted or declined any offers.

How many choices can I make through Extra?

You can make multiple choices before the deadline, but you can only choose one at a time and once you've declined an offer, you can't retrieve it.

Can I apply for a different subject using UCAS Extra?

Yes. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to change your personal statement, so contact us directly to explain why you’ve changed your mind.

I have a UCAS Extra offer, what happens next?

Congratulations! You'll need to reply to it by the date shown in the UCAS Hub. If you accept it, you won’t be able to apply anywhere else, so make sure you’re happy with your decision.

What happens if my UCAS Extra application is unsuccessful?

If you decline an offer or your application is unsuccessful, you can still apply for another course through Extra until Sunday 30 June. If you don’t hold any offers after Friday 5 July, you will be able to add an additional choice using Clearing.
