University of Exeter UCAS

Your application

Application deadlines

Each application cycle starts in September. Your application should normally reach UCAS between 1 September and 15 January. Applicants for Medicine must apply between 1 September and 15 October.

We guarantee that all Home/EU applications received by the UCAS deadline of 15 January are given full and careful consideration. Applications received after this date will be considered on an individual basis, depending on availability of places.

When completing your application, you may find our guidance on how we assess your application useful in helping you to understand the key indicators we look for that demonstrate your potential to us.

University of Exeter UCAS, Completing your application

You may apply for up to five choices of institution or course. Exeter’s code is E84 EXETR. If you are applying for a course that is offered at our Penryn Campus, please note that these programmes are indicated by ‘Penryn Campus, Cornwall’ after the title and you should indicate ‘C’ under ‘Campus Code’ in the ‘choices’ section of the application.

If you are applying for a Flexible Combined Honours programme, Y004, Y006 or Y003, you should clearly indicate the subject areas that you wish to study in the ‘choices’ section of the application.

You will be asked to sign a declaration on the application form, which confirms that the information you have given is true, complete and accurate. Discovery of false information or omissions from the application form could lead to an offer being withdrawn or, in the case of students already registered, to their withdrawal from the University. If you firmly accept our offer of a place, we will require documentary evidence of any qualifications as stated on your UCAS form if these are not verified by UCAS.

Applying for deferred entry

We are happy to consider applicants who intend to take a gap year between school/college and university and applicants applying for deferred entry will be considered in the same way as applicants applying for entry without a gap year.

Part-time study

Applicants who wish to take any of the programmes outlined in this prospectus on a part-time basis should apply direct to the University, normally between 1 September and 30 June, and before 15 January to be guaranteed equal consideration with full time applicants applying by the UCAS deadlines. However, it should be noted that part-time study is not always available for all programmes and you are advised to check with the relevant academic College on availability. International students should also note that UK student visas only permit the holder to study full-time. Application forms are available from the Admissions Office.
