Can you apply to 6 universities?
You can apply to a maximum of 5 universities through UCAS but can you apply to an additional uni directly through them?
Cheers

If its a UK university you use UCAS. If your first 5 fail or result in rejections, then you can use UCAS Extra to make additional applications.
Everyone else manages with 5. You can only go to 1.

If you can't get an offer from five choices, the problem is with how you choose universities, not the number of choices.

Not in the UK. You could apply to unis in other countries.

For example, you cannot apply to the university of Buckingham’s MBChB medicine course through UCAS. They only way to apply is directly through the uni when their application open on the 1st November.
So, can you apply to 5 unis through UCAS and another course directly through a university.
Thanks

You might like to look at the fees charged for Medicine by this private University - £38k a YEAR : https://www.buckingham.ac.uk/medicin...fees-info-link

For Medicine I can think of at least three (all for international students):

Edited to add: UCLan too! https://www.uclan.ac.uk/courses/bach...or_surgery.php

Look, forget the money and everything else.
I just want to know, is it possible to apply to 6 universities?
Can you apply to a university directly through them and apply to 5 through UCAS.
Thanks for the quick replies!

Yes, looks like you can apply to UCAS (4 Medicine choices/1 other), and Buckingham.

You can apply to anything you want outside of UCAS.

I had a shortlist of 6 and I asked all of them if i could apply directly to them so that I could apply to the other 5 through UCAS however all of them told me that the only way to apply was through UCAS so I had to cut my shortlist down further (which was am immensely tough decision). I can't think of any other UK unis that allow you to apply direct but it's still worth asking.

I wanted to apply for this but how come you can’t through UCAS? Is it private and you have to give private fees?
