UCAS Extra

At UWTSD we understand the importance of equipping all students with the information required to apply to UWTSD during UCAS Extra.

What is UCAS Extra?

UCAS Extra is designed for students who haven’t received any offers from their applications. UCAS Extra is open from the end of February until the beginning of July.

Eligibility for UCAS Extra

A student is eligible for UCAS Extra if;

  • Used all five choices;
  • Received five unsuccessful offers (rejection/ declined);
  • Formally withdrawn from any offers;
  • Cancelled outstanding choices and holds no offers;
  • Received decisions from all five choices and have declined all offers made.
  • If a student is eligible to enter into UCAS Extra, a button will appear on UCAS Track under the choices section.

Once this option is selected students can use UCAS course search as normal to search and select a course.

If searching for courses within the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (Swansea/ Carmarthen/ Lampeter/ London) students only have to type into the provider section of UCAS the words “UWTSD”.

Personal Statements in UCAS Extra

When a student is progressing thought UCAS Extra they will not be able to submit a new personal statement. The original personal statement made earlier on the in UCAS process will be formally submitted to any University chosen during UCAS Extra.

If a student has changed subject areas significantly, it would be best for the student to contact their desired University directly in order to find out if they can submit a more relevant personal statement.
