For a detailed requirement, we urge you to read the admissions guidelines in your preferred university websites, and whether you can submit certain documents after the actual deadlines.
From our list above, you may notice that some countries, like Finland or Sweden, require you to send your application very early in January 2019. However, it is also common for European universities to open a second admissions round, on one note, if they did not get enough applicants.
Also, there are some countries that have very late application deadlines. Austria, for example, opens the application submission until shortly before the start of the semester. For these countries, they usually did not open a second submissions round, since they assume you have enough time to prepare.
You may try your luck by contacting the university and ask whether they accept a late application. However, we recommend you apply according to the official deadlines unless there are some technical troubles in the universities’ websites.
Like Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
