I have already sent off my UCAS application with 5 choices of Universities.

Can I still apply directly to a university (not through UCAS)?

Not a problem if not I was just wondering if it was possible lol

It should be possible, but it will depend on the individual university. Most will want you to apply via UCAS if you're based in the UK.

I'd start with trying to call undergrad admissions of the uni you want to go to.

You can apply to undergrad programmes outside the UK and outside of UCAS.

The vast majority of undergrad programmes in the UK use UCAS and are not permitted to accepted direct applications as well.

I believe their are a handful of exceptions occasionally with brand new courses, but as a general rule no (for UK purposes).

You can apply directly without UCAS to private universities such as the University of Buckingham. There might be a couple of others too.

Anything that you can apply through UCAS - NO.

Sub-degree programmes like Art & Design Foundation that are outside UCAS, you can apply direct in addition to your 5 UCAS choices.

As above

Universities that have a direct application option cannot be used for full time BA/BSc etc courses if you have a ucas application. The direct application option for full time degree courses is an alternative to ucas not in addition to ucas.
