    When you make a UCAS application can universities see applications you made during previous years for different universities?

    For example if in 2014 I signed up for a bunch of engineering courses and then in 2016 I made applications for law at completely different universities, would the universities I signed up for in 2016 know about my 2014 applications?

    And could my referee for my 2016 applications see or know about my old applications?

    Ucas could/will match them up through your identifying number, but nobody has the time or interest to send them out to universities for their amusement and entertainment and nor do universities have any interest in reading them. The fact that you have changed your mind is neither important nor interesting to them and they have way too many current applications to look waste time looking at old ones for no reason. If your referee is from your old school, they will be able to see what is on the school system but otherwise, no. You are massively overthinking this. No one will care/mind/bother to look.
