If you are applying for full-time study on any of our undergraduate degree programmes you must do so through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
UCAS manages applications for undergraduate (first degree) programmes at UK universities and colleges.
The application process is the same for international and UK applicants.
UCAS's online application system is called UCAS Apply.
UCAS Apply allows you to:
Your school or college will normally have access to UCAS Apply and will be able to guide you through the process.
If you are applying independently - for example, as a mature student or from overseas - UCAS can advise on the application process.
Open Monday to Friday, 8.30am - 6pm (UK time)
If you have hearing difficulties, call the UCAS Text Relay Service.
The UCAS system operates a principle of invisibility. This means that we cannot see details of what other programmes you have applied to at other institutions until after all institutions have made their decisions.
We make our decisions without reference to or knowledge of your other choices.
If you are applying for Medicine or Veterinary Medicine, only four of the five choices on the UCAS application can be used for these subjects.
We encourage you to use the remaining fifth choice for an alternative programme. This does not prejudice your application in terms of commitment to study Medicine or Veterinary Medicine.
We have a limited number of programmes that are available within the College of Humanities and Social Science for study on a part-time basis.
If you are applying for part-time study, you should apply directly to the University, not through UCAS.
Application packs are available from the College Admissions Office.
You can apply for as many or as few programmes as you wish, within the limitations of the four/five choices available on the UCAS application.
However, restrictions may apply to the number of offers that can be made.
If you are planning to submit more than one application, you are advised to contact the relevant College Admissions Office to advise them of your preference(s).
If you change your mind about the programme you have applied to at any point in the admissions process you should contact the appropriate College admissions team at the earliest opportunity to discuss your options.
There is no minimum or maximum age on entry for our degrees, except where a professional body requires this.
