To date, we have operated one University Technical College (UTC) application round each year.
In order to give UTC applicants more flexibility, we will now run two application rounds each year. As before, Groups may select the year in which they intend to open. A final decision on the UTC’s opening date will be confirmed during the ‘pre-opening’ period. This will be based on the length of time that the UTC needs in the ‘pre-opening’ phase.
The next two application deadlines will be:
(Free Schools will also have an application round in January 2014, which will not apply to UTCs or to Studio Schools.)
The precise dates will be included in the 'How to Apply guidance' that will be published in May 2013.
We expect that application rounds will follow a similar pattern in future years.
We are making some changes to the application form and criteria. Further information can be found in the 'Changes to the UTC criteria' download.
