Applying for an undergraduate degree after the January deadline

If you haven’t applied to the University of Plymouth for September 2020 entry prior to the UCAS deadline, we may still have vacancies on your chosen course.

Apply now through UCAS


All our courses have limited places so it’s good to act quickly if you’re sure about the course you want to apply for. If you’re late to the game or reacting to a setback, there is still time to find the right course for you from the available options.

“Applying after the UCAS deadline can be daunting. One of the main reasons why I chose Plymouth was because they were so supportive during my late application process; they took the time to help me with every single question I had.”
