Applying Early to UK Universities

In order to meet the UCAS deadline for early applications (Oxford, Cambridge, and medical programs), students must ensure that their portion of the online application (including the personal statement) is completed no later than 9 a.m. Tuesday, September 30. Please ask your teacher referee to email her or his letter of support to Ms Berndsen by the same date.

Students applying for medical or law programs or for certain programs at Oxford or Cambridge are required to write standardized tests as part of the application process. Please ensure that you have investigated any testing requirements before the UK workshop on September 10 or September 14; you should also have lined up your teacher referee before the workshop. In addition, you should have checked the minimum IB requirement for any programs you are considering—there is no point applying for a program if you fall below the published minimum grade expectations on your June IB1 report. Please register with Ms Berndsen for one of these mandatory workshops by Wednesday, September 3.
