UCAS Extra Guide

Haven’t got a university place yet? No problem – you can now use UCAS Extra to apply for LCCM this year!

What is UCAS Extra?

UCAS Extra is available to anyone who has missed UCAS’ January application deadline, used up all five of their UCAS choices and not accepted a place. This could be because:

  • You are not holding any offers; or
  • You received offers, but changed your mind and decided the course wasn’t for you.

This gives you another opportunity to find a place on the desired course you’re looking for.

UCAS Extra will be available from 25 February until 30 June, so there’s plenty of time to make your choice and LCCM will be here to help you every step of the way.

How to apply through UCAS Extra

Check out the step-by-step guide below to understand the process of applying through UCAS Extra.  Still have questions? Contact us on 020 3535 1080 or at contact@lccm.org.uk for assistance.

UCAS Extra

What happens after you’ve applied through UCAS Extra?

After you apply and we have considered your application, you may receive a conditional or an unconditional offer from us. If you don’t receive an offer from us or choose to decline it, you can go on to make another UCAS Extra choice.

How many Extra choices can I make?

You can apply to one course at a time through Extra until you accept an offer or until time runs out. However, once you accept an offer, you won’t be able to apply to any more courses through Extra.

Can I change my personal statement?

You cannot apply with a different personal statement or references than the ones you have uploaded to your UCAS profile. You can contact your referees to ask them to update your references if necessary.

In addition, if you would like us to consider your application with a different personal statement, get in touch with us at contact@lccm.org.uk. Remember to include your UCAS application number in all correspondence with us – this will make sure that your revised personal statement will be matched to the correct application.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any problems, concerns or questions you may have. Our dedicated Programme Consultants will get in touch to talk about your application and guide you through the process.

Good luck!

Career Workshop

It’s always good to make sure you have your skills refreshed and improved to prepare for professional life after university. Make sure you catch our latest Career Workshops, delivered by GUS Student Services, coming up this March.

On 6 March, we will offer a workshop on Effective Decision Making and Problem Solving. The relationship between decision making and problem solving is complex. The major difference is that problem solving is a method, whereas decision making is a process. Problem solving is a more analytical aspect of thinking, a fraction of the overall issue being dealt with.

This workshop will help students to:

  • Understand how your mind works in processing decisions;
  • Recognise the impact of positive and negative influences of decision making;
  • Understand how your decisions shape you belief systems and overall personality;
  • Confidently share ideas and solutions with others;
  • Understand creative problem solving techniques.


On 21 March, our workshop will be on Job Search Strategies and Networking. Looking for a job is a process that takes time and energy, and it can be frustrating and demotivating when you do not achieve the outcome you expected. Successful job seekers utilise a variety of strategies and resources that help them distinguish themselves from others and be one step ahead of their competitors.

This workshop will help students to:

  • Get tips and techniques on how to efficiently look for a job;
  • Understand all the channels that can provide work opportunities for students;
  • Be aware of the importance of networking and informational interview.

These workshops are completely free and will be taking place in Classroom 4B between 1pm and 2pm. To book your place, email your full name, student number and the name of the workshop you wish to attend to studentservices@lccm.org.uk.
