UCAS Extra 2014

UCAS Extra starts on 25th February 2014.

This gives applicants, who have used up all of their original 5 choices, but are holding no offers, the opportunity of making further applications and receiving an offer before the exam results are published and Clearing starts.

If you haven't yet applied through UCAS for 2014, you will not be eligible for Extra, but you can still apply through the UCAS main cycle until 30 June - visit www.ucas.com

If you have already applied through UCAS for 2014, UCAS will write and tell you if you are eligible for Extra. They will also send instructions on what to do next.

We are a traditional campus university located close to the city centre, with spectacular views across the estuary of the River Tay. We offer flexible degrees in a wide range of subjects and still have vacancies on some degree courses. More information on the University, campus and city can be found from the links at the top of this page.

Vacancies List (last updated 9th April 2014)

Scottish Widening Access (SIMD 40) Vacancies

The University of Dundee is fully committed to admitting students with the promise and potential to excel on our broad offering of academic, vocational and professional undergraduate degree programmes. As such, our contextualised admissions policy ensures that educational disadvantage is considered in each decision and appropriate adjustments are made. More information on contextualised admissions and how this may apply to your application can be found at: www.dundee.ac.uk/undergraduate/how_to_apply. Our ultimate aim is to increase the opportunities available to candidates from backgrounds who traditionally may not consider Higher Education.

To aid us in this mission, we are currently offering a small number of Widening Access vacancies to candidates from the 40% most multiply-deprived areas in Scotland (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation or SIMD40). These places have been made available from ring-fenced funds provided by the Scottish Funding Council. Candidates eligible for these vacancies will also qualify for our academic access programmes, which can help to top up any academic shortfall and prepare candidates for the transitional challenges of entering an undergraduate degree programme. More information on our Access programmes can be found at: www.dundee.ac.uk/admissions/participation

Rest of the UK and International Vacancies

We also have vacancies for self-funded places for candidates from the Rest of the UK (England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man) and for International students (non-EU countries) and these places are exempt from Scottish Government Caps.
