I am an overseas student from the Caribbean and I am wondering whether or not you can apply to more than 5 Universities. I am attempting to transfer to the UK to study Law, but I am aware that UCAS only affords 5 spaces.
However, is it possible for me to apply to other Universities directly in addition to my 5 choices on UCAS?
Because from what I have gathered it would appear so.

I have a feeling that I've read someone on here saying about applying privately, directly to the universities. If I recall correctly, he was from the USA.
HOWEVER don't quote me on this. TSR lies, maybe?

Only if you have been rejected or you rejected all offers from those five, then you can apply again through clearing. But I would recommend that you seriously think about following that route.
The best thing to do is apply to 5 Unis you would be happy to go to and have realistic grades that you can achieve. (i.e. If you are getting Cs, don't apply somewhere that wants an A*) That way you shouldn't need to have more than 5.
I hope that helps.

Only exception is there are some university courses that you do actually have to apply to the university direct instead of via ucas, but this isn't very common and will show on their website.Last edited by rocket0612; 11-04-2011 at 21:00.
