If you’ve missed the January 15th UCAS deadline for your Midwifery application don’t panic – all is not lost!
Although some universities do have stricter deadlines for their Midwifery courses, many may still consider your application.
In fact, some universities will still consider your application up until June 2019, classing it as a ‘late’ application.
Your application will still be forwarded to the university, and they can choose whether to take it into consideration.
Although it’s worth noting that this will depend on whether all of the places on the course have already been allocated to students, and how many applications the university still has to process in the ‘queue’ of potential students.
It’s always worth checking with the university yourself, by giving their admissions department a call or email, to make sure they’re definitely accepting late applications.
Your other option at this point is UCAS clearing – where Universities offer up any vacant places after exam results have been confirmed, usually because some of the applicants haven’t met the requirements outlined in their conditional offers, or have given up their place for other reasons.
There generally aren’t a lot of Midwifery places up for grabs, as it’s a very popular course – but it does happen.
If you apply after 30th June 2019 you will automatically be entered into clearing for this year.
You’ll also be likely to have to attend an interview at very short notice.
You might have to consider a place at different university from the ones you initially applied to or had in mind.
But if you’re happy to keep your options open, then it could be a good choice for you if you’re determined to start your studies this year.
