Applying through Extra
What is Extra?
If you have applied through UCAS, used all five choices on your application and aren't holding any offers, you might be able to apply through Extra for another course. Extra lets you apply for courses with vacancies between the end of February and the end of June.
Am I eligible?
To use Extra you need to have:
- already made five choices
- received decisions from all these choices, and
- either had no offers or declined all the offers you have received.
If you decline your offers and add an Extra choice, you will not be able to accept any of your original choices later.
How to apply
If you are eligible for Extra, a button will appear on your UCAS Track screen which you can use to apply for a course in Extra.
UCAS Course Search will tell you which courses have vacancies - an 'x' will be displayed next to any available courses.
Choose a course and enter the details in UCAS Track.
What happens next?
If we are able to offer you a place, you can choose whether or not to accept it. If you accept an offer, you are committed to it, which means that you cannot apply anywhere else. You will need to reply to your offer by the date shown in Track.
If you decline an offer, or the university turns you down, you can apply for a different choice through Extra (time permitting).
If you don't get an offer in Extra, don't worry! You can apply through our Clearing process, which gives you another opportunity to apply for vacancies. Please come back in August and check our website for full details.
