Making an Application

When to make your Application

The “on time” application deadline is 6pm on 25th January 2023. Applicants can still apply after that date and we would encourage them to do so. We continue to give all applications equal consideration until either A level results day on 17th August 2023, or the course is full. Here are the key dates in the UCAS calendar

If you miss the UCAS “on time” application deadline, don’t worry, you can still apply via Extra or Clearing – click here to find out what to do.

Any applications made in July, August and September will go into clearing.

How to make your Application

Like any university, to apply for a degree course you’ll need a UCAS account. It’s easy to set up your UCAS account and the application form is straight forward. To begin the process go to and choose the option to apply for an Undergraduate course. Here you will be asked which course you are applying for (a maximum of 5). You’ll also need to add your qualifications, write your personal statement and include your reference.

The application fee charged by UCAS for 2023 entry is £22.50 if you are applying for one choice, and £27 for 2-5 choices.
