How to Apply
We are here to help guide you through the admissions process. Please read through the information below, which will tell you whether you need to apply directly to us or via UCAS, the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service.
All applications to full-time undergraduate courses are made through UCAS using the online application form. This service allows you to apply for up to five courses at the same or different institutions in the UK.
If you are applying to more than one course at university or college, the cost for 2012 entry is £22. If you only apply to one course at one university or college, the cost is £11.
Further guidance and information is available on the UCAS website www.ucas.com or contact the UCAS Customer Service Team on 0871 4680468.
If you are currently studying at a school or college, advice on the application process is available from your tutor. Other applicants can seek advice from their local careers advisory service.
If you are considering applying for a course, it would also be a great idea to visit one of our Open Days.
Part-time applications should be made directly to the University and not to UCAS. The part-time applications form is available to download here:
The University accepts a wide range of international qualifications and further country-specific information is available on the International section of our website.
Mature Student Applications
The University welcomes applications from mature students and will give careful individual consideration if you do not meet the standard entry requirements. The University will take into account any alternative qualifications or work experience you may have.
When to Apply
Applications for full-time courses should reach UCAS between 1 September and 15 January of the year prior to entry. There is provision for late applications up to 30 June, but only if suitable vacancies remain. The UCAS website will advise on course vacancies at the point of application.
If you are an international applicant you can apply up to 30 June.
Part-time applications are welcomed from September onwards.
