UCAS Embargo: If you’ve applied for your next stage of study with us through UCAS, we’ve got some important information to share with you about how and when we can discuss your application with you. The “UCAS embargo,” covers two periods of time where we are not allowed to communicate the status of your application to you if you have an active UCAS application.

Each year, while we’re processing your application, we are required by UCAS to remove access which could indicate your results. This includes any additional applications you have with us where confirmation of your place could indicate your results; you’ll also lose access to “UCAS Track” during these times.

The dates for 2020 UCAS Embargo are shown below:

If you have a UCAS application, some of the information in UDo will be removed during these dates. However, they will be returned outside of the dates above.
