Is it possible to apply for both UK and abroad universities? For example if I dont get in to any of my UK choices, can I apply for a uni abroad straight away?

If you don't get in first time, take a gap year. It's much better option than going abroad

It's totally possible to apply to universities abroad the same time as UK unis, because the UCAS is only UK unis so there are no restrictions on you applying abroad too

It's definitely something with considering, you'd get great international experience and with the rising fees and loss of grants in the UK you could be a lot better off looking abroad.

If you're feeling particularly adventurous, I've just finished my year abroad in China and there so many scholarships for international students here, you could easily get all your tuition and loving costs covered by the Chinese government! There are some pretty decent universities too, eg Peking uni in Beijing.

Bear in mind that if you go abroad you'll not be able to get a student loan from the UK government, so you'll have to look into scholarships, private loans, your own savings, etc.

Interesting, I'll definitely looks around for some good universities and places to study. Is there a specific deadline to submit an application to study abroad or can you apply anytime before the 1st year starts (it might be a dumb question but I've seen people who hadn't got into any UK unis and just applied to international before 1st year abroad). Aldo, private loans?

I've kinda done 3 years of A level already do I really want to keep my years, as healthy as a gap year may seem. Also not many UK universities accept me if I've done 3 years of A level
