With UCAS Extra opening this Sunday, the 25th February, we thought it would be a good idea to set up a thread to answer any questions you may have about applying through UCAS Extra
We've put together a list of UCAS Extra FAQ's, which you may find useful...
- Who is UCAS Extra for? UCAS Extra is for those who have used all five of their choices on UCAS, but have either been unsuccessful for all choices or have declined all the offers they have received.
- Can I apply through UCAS Extra if I am holding offers? No. To apply through Extra you cannot be holding offers elsewhere. Please think carefully before declining any offers you may already be holding, as you will not be able to reinstate these choices if you change your mind.
- How many times can I apply through Extra? You can only apply for one choice at a time through Extra; however if you are unsuccessful or decline an offer, you can apply for another course through Extra and so on, until you have been made an offer that you accept or you run out of time.
- How can I find out if a course is available through UCAS Extra? You can search for courses that are open to applications through Extra at https://digital.ucas.com/search.
- Can I send a new personal statement to Manchester Met if my original is no longer relevant? Yes, you can send a new personal statement if your original is no longer relevant. This can be sent via email to the relevant Admissions Team. A list of the Admissions Team contact details can be found at the bottom of the following webpage - http://www2.mmu.ac.uk/study/undergra...2018/my-offer/. Please note that it is at the discretion of the Admissions Tutor as to whether they will consider an additional personal statement.
- When does UCAS Extra close? UCAS Extra closes on the 4th July 2018. However, it is worth noting that many of our courses may close before the 4th July, so it always best to apply as soon as possible. Any applications after the 4th July will need to be made through clearing, which opens on the 5th July.
The Student Room also have some really useful information on Extra which you can find here.
Some of our courses which are currently available through Extra include BA (Hons) Primary Education and BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing.
Please feel free to post any questions, and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
