Applying for an undergraduate course

Whether you wish to apply for a foundation or a Bachelor degree, you must complete a UCAS application form online via the UCAS website| with the appropriate fee.
UCAS is the central Admission system for the UK. Advice and a step-by-step guide is also available while applying online should you have any difficulty completing the online UCAS form. 

Application deadline

Overseas students have until the end of June to apply in UK institutions. EU students are advised to apply by 15 January 2013 although you can still be considered afterwards if there are any places left.
It is recommended to apply as early as possible if you wish to secure a place, especially for  courses related to Media, Social sciences, Art and Design where there is a limited number of places. 

What happens next?

Once your application has been submitted to UCAS, the University will contact you with a decision. It is expected that you will have to wait around 3 to 4 weeks for the UCAS form to be processed initially. You will be first informed of the decision by UCAS.

UCAS operates a tracking system, which enables you to track your application once it has been submitted. You must await the University's decision which you will be able to check on Track.

When you have received an offer, conditional or unconditional (definite), you must use the UCAS 'Track your progress' to accept the offer.

  • If your offer is conditional, once you have received your results, please send them to the International Office. You must use 'Track your progress' to accept your offer. If you do not do so, your application will be withdrawn.
  • If you satisfy the conditions requested, you will be made an unconditional offer. You must use 'Track your progress' to accept unless you already did so while conditional. If you do not contact UCAS, your application will be withdrawn.

After being informed of the decision by UCAS, the University will send you an offer letter, detailing the conditions/fees, etc. If you need to apply for a visa, it is essential that the University provides you with a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS).

If you have accepted your offer, a pre-arrival pack will be sent to you including information about accommodation, payments, Meet and Greet service, induction programme and further information.
