Before applying, please check to see whether you are considered a 'Home/EU' or 'Overseas' applicant. For many applicants it will be clear what their fee status is but for others it may be less clear. It is important you check this as the application process is slightly different depending on your status. The most important difference is the closing date for applications.

Application deadlines

Applications for degree programmes starting in September can be made from the October of the preceding year. As stated above the closing date will depend on whether you are a Home/EU student or an international applicant. The definition is based on your fee status.

  • For UK and EU students the closing date is 15 January
  • For international students the closing date is 30 June, however our competitive programmes may close on 15 January

How to apply

All applicants, whether from the UK, EU or an international country, must apply via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) to any of our full-time undergraduate degree programmes.
