Universities Around the World With Late Deadlines

When applying for studies abroad, it is important to start this process in advance.

The majority of universities have deadlines in January and February. By then, you need to have all your documents or at least some of them ready. Since it’s already spring, those of you who haven’t applied anywhere yet are probably wondering whether you still have a chance.

Is it possible to apply now and start your studies this fall, without waiting for a whole year? Well, yes! There are still options available. We’ve picked several universities and programs with late deadlines in popular study abroad destinations.


If you are late with your application, take a look at the UK universities. Some of them have deadlines in summer. If you apply through the centralized application system UCAS till 26 January, the university guarantees to consider your application. However, you can still apply through UCAS after this deadline and up until June or July. In this case, the application will be considered if there are places available for the program.
