HOW TO APPLY
For full-time higher education courses in the UK, you must apply online via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), at www.ucas.com
You can apply for up to five undergraduate courses; the universities you apply to will not know what course choices you have made at other universities.
If you are at school or college, talk to your teacher about your application. There is a fee for making an application, which is payable online or through your school or college. If you are not at school or college, you can still apply through the UCAS website.
Please feel free to contact the University. If you are resident outside the UK, you can get advice from your school or college, British Council offices and other centres. If you are a mature applicant resident in the UK, you can seek advice from careers organisations such as Connexions.
