Main UCAS deadline
Deadline for all undergraduate courses (except Medicine and Dentistry).
After applying, you’ll receive a welcome email from UCAS and Newcastle University with details of how to use UCAS Track. UCAS Track shows how your application is progressing.
Our admissions tutors review your application, taking into account your personal statement, reference, evidence of relevant skills and any special circumstances.
Our admissions tutors let you know the outcome of your application by adding the decision to UCAS. You will be notified via email to log in to UCAS Track.
There are three possible outcomes:
- a conditional offer means you still need to meet the requirements – usually exam results
- an unconditional offer means you've got a place, although there might still be a few things to arrange
- an unsuccessful application means we aren’t able to offer you a place on your chosen course
Once your last offer is added to UCAS, you receive an email from UCAS. You log in to Track and reply to your offers.
You can choose a university as your first choice (Firm) and second choice (Insurance).
Deadline dates for responding to your offer are in UCAS Track. Consider your options carefully and respond by the specified dates.
