Applying for an Undergraduate Degree

Applying to University

Applications are now open for 2024 entry to our undergraduate courses. You can still apply as normal through UCAS until 30 June 2024. The UCAS equal consideration application deadline was 16 October 2023 for medicine.

On this page you can find the information you need to apply to university, from choosing the right degree to crafting the perfect personal statement.

Choosing Your Degree

What you decide to study at university depends on the subjects you enjoy and any future career aspirations you may have. Most students will choose to study for what is known as a BA or BSc, which is a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, but you will also see that there are other undergraduate degree qualification titles, such as BEng (Bachelor of Engineering), LLB (Bachelor of Laws), and BM (Bachelor of Medicine). These relate to the subject area being studied.

Our courses typically take three years to complete full time, although some do offer opportunities to study abroad for a year or take a work placement in industry, adding an additional year to the programme. We also offer integrated Master’s programmes in some subject areas, such as MEng, MPhys, and MBio, which take four years to complete and lead to a higher-level qualification.

Checking Important Information

It is important to make sure that you have all of the information you need to make the best decision for you. This information can be found either on our course pages, or by getting in touch with our friendly Enquiries Team.

Make sure you also take a look at our alternative entry routes and contextual offers. These are designed to support students from a range of backgrounds to access higher education.

You can also calculate your expected tariff points using UCAS's Tariff Calculator.
