Full-time Applications for 2022

Most full-time undergraduate degree applications from UK students are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

The deadline for applications depends on what course you are aiming to study. Applications to undertake a medicine degree in September 2022 should reach UCAS by 15 October 2021. Applications for all other full-time undergraduate programmes starting in autumn 2022 should typically be made between 7 September 2021 and 26 January 2022 - known as the UCAS 'equal consideration deadline'.

After the end of June, any new applications will automatically be entered into Clearing. Some students may also be eligible to apply through UCAS Extra, which opens on 25 February 2022. This provides an extra choice for applicants who have already applied to universities through UCAS but are not holding any current offers.

Part-time Applications

Part-time applications should be made directly to the University using our online application system via the link below and are welcomed from September onwards. Part-time applications are not made via UCAS.
