Are you ready to make your application? There are a number of different ways to apply to your course, depending on your chosen pathway.

Full-Time Courses

To apply to a full-time honours degree, foundation degree, Higher National Certificate or Diploma course, you must register and apply through UCAS. Each course has a unique UCAS code (these are listed on the courses on the website and in our prospectus), use this to apply for the correct course. If you do not have internet access, contact UCAS on 0371 468 0 468 for details of regional application centres.

Part-Time Courses

If you wish to study a part-time honours degree, foundation degree, Higher National Certificate or Diploma or higher professional qualification, you can apply directly through our website via the ‘Apply now’ page. Alternatively, If you require a paper application form, you can request one here - Request a paper application form.

Higher Apprenticeships

To apply for a higher apprenticeship, visit the Government apprenticeship vacancy website to find an apprenticeship vacancy to apply to. If you do not see a suitable vacancy available, you can email your CV to stating which apprenticeships you are interested in. We will then send you any vacancies available when they come up. Alternatively, you may already be employed in a relevant business with an employer who is able to offer you the apprenticeship, if this is you, please apply directly to the College via our ‘Apply now’ page.

Apprenticeships are a job with training, and so an application and interview process with the employer and College will be required. If you are successful at interview, you will then be given a start date for your apprenticeship.

Interviews, portfolios and auditions

On receipt of your application, you may be invited to an interview. This is your opportunity to meet with a tutor and ask any questions you might have, before deciding whether this is the right course for you. You might also be asked to provide a portfolio of work as part of your application or attend auditions.

Entry Requirements

All of the University Centre courses have individual entry requirements, and these can be found on the specific course pages. If you can’t see your prior qualifications listed, please get in touch with us to discuss your options. We also readily accept applicants who have relevant skills and experience but do not hold the standard minimum entry requirement. Non-standard entry applicants will be required to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience to enter the course through their personal statement.

Applicants who have studied an Access to Higher Education Diploma should calculate tariff points using the UCAS tariff calculator.

English Requirements for International Students

IELTS score is required for international students whose first language is not English. 6.0 with no component less than 5.5. There is further information available for international students on our website if you’re applying with non-UK qualifications.

Missed the UCAS deadline?
If you’ve missed the January UCAS deadline, you can still apply for one of our full-time degrees or higher-level courses through UCAS. For courses that are part-time, you should make your application direct to the College, via the College website.
