To check entry requirements or for any further information about specific courses, please search our course catalogue.

When to Apply

For entry in September 2023 (or deferred entry in September 2024), you can submit your application to us on UCAS from 1 September 2022 onwards.

The last dates for receipt of applications to UEA are:

  • 15 October 2022 for applications to our Medicine degree programmes
  • 25 January 2023 for all other undergraduate programmes

Applications received after 25 January 2023 will be considered at the University's discretion.

UCAS Extra & Clearing

If you submit five choices on your UCAS application and are unsuccessful, or you choose to decline all the offers you receive, you will be able to make an additional choice through UCAS Extra. Before submitting your application, you will need to check that there are still places available on the course that you would like to apply for.

If you do not hold any offers after 5 July, you can apply through UCAS Clearing.

Keep in touch with UEA

After you have submitted your application to UEA we will mainly keep in touch with you by email, so please check your emails regularly (and if you don’t hear anything from us, please check your junk mailbox).

If your email address changes after you have submitted your application, please update it through UCAS, and UCAS will then pass on the update to us.

It is also important that you regularly check your UCAS account to follow the progress of your application.

Deferred entry

We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year. We believe that a year between school/college and university can be of substantial benefit. If you intend to apply with deferred entry, please let us know about your gap year plans in your personal statement.
