Your application

​​​The application process can be confusing. Don't worry, we can help you get started and equip you with details on how to get onto your dream course.

Applying to university

You apply for full-time undergraduate courses via UCAS, which is the centralised admissions service for students applying to higher education in the UK. Not only is it an online portal where you submit your application, it is also a source of useful information.The UCAS form comprises 6 parts:

  • Personal details

  • Choices (Up to 5 courses)

  • Education

  • Employment

  • Personal statement

  • Reference

Your personal statement is an opportunity to tell universities why they should offer you a place. Find out more about what to write for your personal state​ment here.

Fraud and similarity

Before we receive your application from UCAS, their dedicated Verification Team check it for signs of fraud or similarity in personal statements. As long as you complete the application truthfully, accurately and if the personal statement is completely your own work, then you do not need to worry.

They will also take the application fee, which is £20 for one course or £25 for multiple courses and late applications sent after 30 June.*

*Fees correct for 2020 entry
