UK application deadline
International application deadline
30 June 2022 at 18:00 (UK time)
International applicants can apply after 26 January via our direct application system. (Except for Medicine or Dentistry)
We may occasionally have spaces available through Clearing and Adjustment.
If you plan to take a year out before you start university we would advise you to apply before you go on your gap year. You can then defer entry to your course to the following year. (Except for PDGE, and Art & Design (General Foundation) BA (Hons) / BDes (Hons)).
What happens next?
You will receive an acknowledgement from us by email so that you know we have received your application. You can keep up to date with the progress of your application and reply to your offers using UCAS Track.
We consider all aspects of your application before we decide whether to offer you a place or invite you to interview. For some courses you need to provide evidence of work experience in your personal statement to show that you have taken steps to find out about the profession.
UCAS allow us to make three types of offers of admission:
If you have already obtained the necessary entry qualifications
If you still need to obtain the passes/grades specified in the offer. If you obtain these passes, your offer will change to unconditional, meaning you definitely have a place. To secure a place you must meet all conditions of an offer by 31 August. This date also refers to applicants who have deferred their entry to the following year.
If you are not suitably qualified
UCAS have a few useful videos on offers and replies which are worth watching.
If you apply for entry to Level 2 or Level 3 but you do not meet the conditions of the offer, you will not be automatically considered for entry to a lower level of entry as there may no longer be vacancies.
