How to apply for our degree-level courses

Choosing a university is one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make. We are here to help you on your application journey.

If you have any questions or need any support with making your application, please contact our friendly Admissions Team: email [email protected] or call 01274 433008 (8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday).

You must apply direct through the UCAS website once you've decided on your full-time course of choice. Applications can be made from September for the following year of entry. The UCAS application deadline is 15 January, but if you miss the deadline you may still be able to apply through Clearing

Visit the UCAS website to apply for a course and see our step-by-step guide to applying via UCAS, below.

Apply online for your chosen course via the UCAS website. The UCAS application deadline is 15 January. After the deadline, you’ll need to check the course is still open and you may be able to apply through Clearing. Please contact us for more details. We recommend you take a look at these key dates when applying through UCAS


If you’ve applied for a course in the Faculties of Arts and Creative Industries, Education or Social Care and Community Practice, you may be invited to attend an interview before we can make you an offer.


We aim to make a decision within two weeks of receiving your application. You can check your application outcome via UCAS Track. Offers can be unconditional if you've already met the entry requirements for your course, or conditional if your offer is reliant on exam results.


Once you've received an offer to study at our University Centre for 2018 entry, you may be invited to an Applicant Visit Day so you can find out more. Tour our multi-million pound campus, try out our state-of-the-art facilities for yourself, and find out about student life from our Student Ambassadors.


When you’ve received decisions from all the institutions you applied to, you can select your firm and insurance places via UCAS Track. If you haven’t received any offers from your choice of institutions or have declined all your offers, UCAS Extra allows you to add an additional choice to your application, from the end of February to the end of June, before Clearing opens.


If you have chosen us as your firm choice and meet the conditions of your offer when your results are published/received, we will confirm your place on the course using UCAS Track. If you don’t meet the conditions of your offer, you might be eligible to use the UCAS Clearing service to apply for courses where there are still vacancies. If you are still looking for a course at our University Centre, call us on 01274 433008 to discuss your options.
