Deadline looms for South Yorkshire students seeking university places

South Yorkshire students planning to start an undergraduate course at university or college this autumn have until 6pm on Thursday January 15 to submit their UCAS application.

As long as an application is completed by the deadline, it’s guaranteed to be considered by the chosen universities and colleges.

Applicants can make up to five choices on their application and the UCAS website has details on the 37,000 courses on offer, including their typical entry requirements.

Fatuma Mahad, UCAS director of operations said: “Now’s the time to put the finishing touches to your application. Make sure your personal statement expresses your desire, excitement and commitment to study your chosen courses.

“Double check all your choices carefully.”
