This is your definitive guide to the process and stages of applying to university.
Find full-time or part-time undergraduate courses.
It is important to do plenty of research when looking at university. Look into the courses that interest you the most and what those courses could lead onto. You should also look into the costs associated with university and the funding sources available to you.
Not sure where to start? Try taking a look through the Career Pilot website to help you plan your future. You can also request a prospectus and browse courses online.
Open Days are a great way to visit us, hear from the academics who would teach you, and see the accommodation you could end up living in.
Currently all our Open Days are virtual which means the content is recorded and can be watched back in your own time.
Applying for university can be done in a variety of ways. UK students typically apply through UCAS, whereas international students can apply via UCAS or directly through our website. To find out everything you need to know about applying to university through UCAS, check out this useful guide
1 September: UCAS applications open
29 January: deadline for UK applications (extended)

A good personal statement is an important part of the application process. We’re interested in you as an individual, so tell us about yourself and what interests you!
If your main language is not English, you will need to show us that your English is at the right level to enable you to study here successfully. The majority of undergraduate courses require IELTS 6.0, with 6.0 in reading and writing, 5.5 in speaking and listening
Once you have decided which course you want to study, have your personal statement, and any other supporting documents you are ready to submit your application. This is normally done through UCAS or by applying direct.
Applicant and interview days are special days for applicants where you can find out more about your chosen course and explore the university and city where you could end up living!
Don’t let the cost of university put you off. UK students are eligible for maintenance and tuition fee loans. There is also financial support available for EU and international students. International students will need to pay a deposit to confirm their place.
We recommend that you apply for student finance as soon as you’ve submitted your application.
Once you’ve been made an offer we’ll contact you about accommodation options. You can choose to live in university halls, rent off a private landlord or live at home.
Once you have received your results you will receive an update from us letting you know if you have met the terms of the offer and what happens next.
If you are an international student, there are some additional steps you need to to take to confirm your place.
If you’re an international student you may need to apply for a visa to study over here. We will send you guidance on this once your offer is confirmed.
The final step is enrolment and moving in. We run a welcome week of induction activities to help you settle in and make new friends.
