However, when it comes to the general intake, they are much more focusing on postgraduate courses and also some limited courses for undergraduate as well.

    Most universities in the U.K. start their academic year in September. However, a lot of them have courses that will have further intakes throughout the academic year. Usually these are limited and not offered on all courses. So always check on the course details page on the website to see how many intakes they offer. When you receive your offer letter, you will have the course start date listed on there. If your course has several intakes, always check to make sure you know which month you start.
