Applying for an undergraduate degree

When to apply

January is the main deadline for applying to most undergraduate courses that start in September.

You can usually still apply after the deadline though – until 30 June. Firstly, check if there are places available on the course you’re interested in – contact us at admissions@glos.ac.uk or 03330 141414.

How to complete your application

You apply for full-time undergraduate degrees through UCAS, filling in your personal details, up to 5 course choices, your education & employment, a personal statement and a reference. There’s a fee of £20 for 1 course, or £25 for multiple courses or late applications sent after 30 June.

Entry requirements

Each course page has specific entry requirements, which may include specific grades from A Levels, BTEC or equivalent qualifications – or a combination of qualifications adding up to a UCAS Tariff UCAS Tariff point total.

Some courses also require an interview or audition.

To study an Honours undergraduate degree, you should also have at least 2 A levels (or equivalent) or at least 1 foundation degree – as well as grade 4/C in English GCSE, and for some courses, Grade 4/C or above in GCSE Maths and/or Science. If you’re unsure whether you meet the minimum requirements, please send details of all your qualifications and the courses you’re interested in to admissions@glos.ac.uk and we’ll let you know.

​Writing your personal statement

This is your chance to tell us why we should offer you a place to study with us.

You’ll have up to 4,000 characters (or 47 lines) of text, which is roughly an A4 page. Tell us what interests you, why you’d like to join our diverse community of students and experts, and what you’ve done before that will make you a great student.

Take a look at UCAS’ personal statement guide, and don’t forget to proof read!

What happens to your application?

UCAS checks applications for fraud, and for similarity in personal statements. Don’t worry, if your application is truthful and the personal statement is all your own work, you’ll be fine.

They’ll then send your application to us to decide if we can make you an offer or ask you to an interview.
