  • how-to-apply-banner
  • All undergraduate applications for Oxford Brookes Business School must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) between 1 September and 15 January, prior to starting university the following September. You are advised to apply as early as is possible to secure your place.

    Taking a gap year

    If you wish to defer entry for a year before starting your course, you need to apply one year in advance and amend your UCAS form to show the proposed year of entry. Oxford Brookes Business School encourages students to extend their experience through suitable gap year activities.

    January entry

    You can start some of our courses in January as well as September. A January start can be particularly useful for students who need more time to complete their pre-university studies, obtain an English language score, organise funding or arrange a visa.

    Please call +44 (0) 1865 48 48 48 or email helloOBBS@brookes.ac.uk to find out more about January entry.


    Late applications are accepted by UCAS after 15 January until 30 June, but are only considered at the School's discretion. Application forms received by UCAS on or after 1 July will not be considered for entry that year. Courses that have not been filled by mid-August will be put into Clearing.

    Final Year Entry

    Successful completion of recognised courses may count towards an Oxford Brookes University qualification. If we can make you an award of transferred credit for your previous study this will reduce the total number of modules you need to study with Oxford Brookes University to gain an Oxford Brookes degree. This could mean you joining the second or final year of a degree course, enabling you to complete a UK degree from Oxford Brookes University within a shorter time period.
