This timeline gives you an overview of the application process, key dates to remember and when you can meet us.
May 2022 - January 2023
You can start your UCAS application as early as May, but you can't submit it until 6 September. The deadline for equal consideration is 25 January. You can still apply after this date, however we cannot guarantee applications will be given the same level of consideration as those that arrive before this date. To apply to York, you will need to complete an online application via UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service).
Explore what studying and living in York is really like at one of our Open Days. Our Open Days are on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September.
Deadline for Medicine
15 October 2022
Today is the UCAS closing date for applications to Hull York Medical School.
Apply for student finance
To ensure that your funding is ready for the start of your course, apply early for your student finance. You don't need a confirmed place at university to apply.
You can also see whether you're eligible for any of our scholarships and bursaries.
25 January 2023
Today is the UCAS application deadline for equal consideration for all courses (except Medicine). We will consider applications received after this date if places are available. Although we will do everything we can in the circumstances, we cannot guarantee that late applications will be given the same level of consideration as those that arrive by 25 January.
Apply for accommodation
Applications open January 2023
If you apply to York as a new first-year undergraduate student for 2023/24 entry and receive an offer from us, you may be covered by our accommodation guarantee of a room in single-occupancy accommodation that is owned, managed or approved by the University, provided that you follow specific steps which will be detailed when you accept on offer to study at York.
January - April 2023
Congratulations if you've received an offer from us! Your next step is to attend a visit day and meet your department.
UCAS Extra opens
23 February 2023
If you've used all five choices and you're not holding any offers, you might be able to add another choice through UCAS Extra.

Reply to your offers
8 June 2023
Now it's time to reply to your offers - accept one of your offers as your firm (first) choice and one as your insurance (second) choice.
You’ll need to check UCAS Hub for your own personal deadline to reply to your offers. If UCAS does not receive a reply by your deadline, they will decline on your behalf.
Deadline for late applications
30 June 2023
The deadline for late applications - although we recommend you apply as early as possible. Where possible we will continue to process late applications and make offers right up to this deadline.
5 July 2023
If you’re not holding any offers (including through UCAS Extra), Clearing is your last opportunity to be considered by universities who still have courses available. You’ll also go straight through to Clearing if you made your application after 30 June.
Where possible, we’ll try to make decisions on these applications as soon as we receive them. However, in some cases, we’ll need to consider them as part of the larger Clearing process in August.
We are currently waiting on exact dates for next year, but here is a general timescale based on previous years:
- A level results and Pearson BTEC Level 3 Nationals (both QCF and RQF) released - August
- GCSE results released - August
- Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Highers and Advanced Highers released - August
- Northern Ireland CCEA - exact dates are still to be confirmed.
Confirmation and Clearing
Once you've got your exam results, we'll be able to make a final decision on your application. Please note that we can only confirm your place based on your official results – we cannot make any decisions based on 'provisional' results.
If you’re not holding any offers (including through UCAS Extra) you could explore options through Clearing.
