Application deadlines and dates you need to know

Below are all the key dates you need to know if you're applying for undergraduate study at Imperial.

If you submit your completed application to UCAS by the 'equal consideration' deadline, this means that it doesn't matter whether you applied as soon as applications open or on the application deadline; your application will have an equal chance of success.

We recommend giving yourself plenty of time to complete your UCAS application as there’s quite a bit to do. Importantly, you don’t need to complete it all at once, as you can save it as you go.

It's worth making sure you have enough time to spend on each element – particularly your personal statement.

You won't be able to submit your application until your chosen referee has completed and added your reference to the application.
