Making an application

Check the entry requirements

  • As with many universities, we use the UCAS Tariff point system.
  • Read our general entry requirements and look at our online course descriptions to see our specific requirements for each course. Here you’ll find typical offers for degrees or diplomas including any specific subjects and grades needed.
  • If you’re studying a qualification that’s not listed, or if you have any other questions, contact our Admissions team.

Attend an Open Day

  • Attending an Open Day is a great opportunity to find out whether we’re the right university for you. We normally hold one in June, October and November.
  • To find out more about what happens on an Open Day and details of how to make separate arrangements if you can’t make it on a scheduled date take a look at our Open Day pages.

Keep track of deadlines

Remember to submit your application by Wednesday 15 January 2020 UCAS deadline to have the best chances of getting onto the course you want.

However, if you do miss this deadline, don’t panic, as we’ll accept applications after the deadline until the course is full. View our application timeline for more information on deadlines.

How to apply for

Full–time applicants

If you’re a UK or EU applicant interested in full-time undergraduate degrees or foundation degrees, you need to apply online through UCAS.  It’s really straightforward and you’ll be guided through each step.  Even if you want to enter into the second or third year, you still need to apply via UCAS.

Part-time applications

If you're interested in applying for a part-time course with us or a local partner college, you need to apply directly to us, or the college.
View our part-time courses and apply online via the 'apply' button on the course listing.

Deferred entry

It may be possible to defer your entry once you have received an offer. Email to confirm that you would like to defer, this will then be considered and your application updated if possible. Some courses do not allow deferral and this will be specified on the appropriate course page.

Entry into year 2 or 3

It may be possible to apply for advanced entry if you have completed equivalent study elsewhere. When you apply through UCAS please indicate which year you would like to enter into and you will be sent information on how to apply for Accredited Learning by our Admissions team.

International applicants

If you're an international applicant, read our international application guide as this will advise you how to apply for us.

Declare a disability

Applications are considered based upon an applicant’s academic suitability and interest in their chosen programme, any disability disclosed does not play any part in the decision making process.  It is important to disclose any disability on your application form so that our dedicated Disability Service can work together with you to explore your needs and put the right support in place for you. 

Disclose a criminal conviction

If you have a criminal conviction, please make sure you declare this on your application. We may ask you for some more information about the nature of the conviction during the application process.

Please note that we won’t be able to proceed with your application until you provide this.
