The deadline for equal consideration was January 26th, so you would already be applying late - in which case it's normally advised you contact the uni beforehand to see if they would consider your late application in the first place.

Most likely any courses still available now will be going into clearing so it doesn't really matter if you apply now or just go through clearing honestly. You still need to pay the same fee and realistically it'll be the same courses available.

UCAS was open until today, so you will not be able to apply for courses now except through clearing. Clearing will open on 5th July 2022 via UCAS.

I think for transfers it may be different though. Email the admissions team of the university you want to apply to, with your full name, student/UCAS ID, date of birth, what you are accepted for now, and what you want to change it to and why. They may also require you to write a new personal statement, but I believe you can do this directly via email instead of having to go through UCAS. Perhaps ring the admissions team first and ask them if you can do it this way.

I hope this helps and that you are provided with a smooth transfer

Please stop advising applicants that transfer applications can be handled by email without a formal application. This isn’t true and at this time of year it is wasting valuable time.

OP - if you want to do this then you’ll need a ucas application so get that completed asap and then RING universities you’re interested in to find out what information they need from you to consider your transfer application in clearing.

Transfer applications are COMPLEX and take time to consider so don’t delay things. Get your ucas application submitted this weekend.

i meant that they will still need to make a UCAS application, but with transferring you can do this via email instead of through the normal clearing process. I work in the enquiries team and know that you can do it this way. Of course ringing is good to check what they want and if they are currently accepting transfers, but if they are they will ask the applicant to email them the relevant information, and in my post I told them to ring first.

Even after emailing an applicant would need to submit a ucas application eventually to have their application formally considered and offers made.

Especially for transfers there’s no point in delaying getting a ucas application submitted while waiting for email enquiries or “offers in principle” to be finalised. There’s very little time left to go through the formal APEL/RPEL process - getting things started with a ucas application asap should be the priority for anyone wanting to transfer at this stage of the admissions cycle
