Is there an advantage to applying early?
We consider all applications for funded places together in January, so your application will not be treated differently if you apply early. However, you need to submit all relevant documents and references by the deadline in order for your application to be considered. We therefore recommend you apply as soon as you are ready.
If you are not applying for a funded place, you are more likely to get a place at your first choice college if you apply earlier in the year.
