• How to apply

    Follow our easy application process, we'll help you every step of the way

  • Find out which application route is right for you and what you need to apply to study with us:

    • For full-time undergraduate programmes, you should apply through UCAS.
    • For postgraduate study*, you may apply through a local agent. You may also apply to us directly using our applicant portal for postgraduate study. 

    *For a few postgraduate courses, you will need to apply differently. Please check the individual online course entries for information about how to apply. 

    For January entry, you will need to make a direct application to the University.

    For International Foundation courses, please apply directly to the University. 

    If you are applying for a research degree, you will need to contact the relevant postgraduate research tutor to discuss your proposal informally before you apply.

  • When to apply

    If you are applying to start in September 2022, you can usually apply until 30 June 2022. 

    If you are applying from India or Nigeria

    This year, applications from students in India and Nigeria have been extremely popular. We want to ensure that we can effectively support our Indian and Nigerian students through the visa application process. To do this we have had to take the difficult decision to close applications from these countries earlier this year. Students from India and Nigeria will need to submit applications by 30 May 2022. 

    For a January start, you will usually need to apply by December. See our January entry page for more information.

    If the application deadline has passed, then please contact our Admissions Team on email at admissions@brookes.ac.uk or call +44 (0)345 350 3699 to see if we can consider a late application from you. Make sure to allow enough time to apply for your student visa and student accommodation.
