The main intake for all educational Institutions in UK is September . Every university opens admissions for all courses that they offer, for the September intake. There is also a Mid-year intake offered by some British Universities during January / February. It is important to keep in mind that, a university offering an intake in Jan/ Feb might not necessarily offer all the courses that they have on list, during the mid year intake. Whether or not a University will offer a Jan / Feb intake can be found out on the university website, but this decision is often taken by the university depending on the number of applications they receive of a particular subject, for the Jan / Feb intake.
It also important to keep in mind that application to Undergraduate courses needs to be routed through UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admission Services). Further information about UCAS can be found on www.ucas.com. As the UCAS procedure can sometimes take a longer duration of time, a large number of British Universities are now enabling Indian students to apply directly to the University, without necessarily using the UCAS route. Deadlines must be kept in mind, when applying through UCAS, in which case applications must be made before June 30, incase of international students living outside the UK/ EU.
