    Hello all,
    I'm sure this is a silly question, but I was wondering if I can apply for 2018 entry twice in the cycle.
    I applied to all 5 choices, to do nursing, and have as yet received no replies, so I know I can withdraw my application if I wish, but if I do, would I be able to start a new UCAS application.
    I am now interested in applying for veterinary science, and don't really want to wait until 2019 entry!
    Thanks

    Veterinary Science applications have to be submitted by October 15th, so that's not possible for what you want specifically. I also believe your general approach is also not possible... PQ?

    See the section on cancellations
    https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu...te-application

    Cancellations (with a refund) which would allow a reapplication in the same cycle can only be done within 14 days of applying.

    If you've changed your mind on what to study after 14 days then you are best waiting until February and seeing if any of the courses you're interested in are available in Extra (and if not then waiting until July/August in case spaces become available in Clearing).

    One possible other route to explore would be if any of your 5 nursing choices also offer a course you're interested in. Those universities might be willing to reconsider you for the other course - but if you wanted to keep any offers made through this route that would prevent you from using Extra or Clearing to apply elsewhere.

    You've missed the deadline for vet med but there are other vet related courses still open.

    Thank you, I did suspect this actually! xx
