  • To apply for a full-time undergraduate course you should apply through UCAS. Further guidance about how to apply, as well as guidance on how to write a personal statement, can be found on the UCAS website. The UCAS application fee for 2024/25 entry is £27.50 for up to five choices.

  • Many of our undergraduate courses are offered on a part-time basis, offering a more flexible approach to learning, which allows you to complete your studies over a longer period of time. To apply for a part-time undergraduate course, you should complete our Direct Application form.

  • If you are an international student, you should apply through the same routes as UK students, through UCAS for full-time undergraduate study, and directly to us for part-time undergraduate study. Please note that if you are an international student applying to study in the UK on the Student Route visa you must study your degree on a full-time basis.

  • For entry in September 2024, you should aim to submit a UCAS application by 31 January 2024. If you are applying after this date, check the course page or UCAS to make sure the course is still open. Some courses with limited places will close to new applications after the January deadline or during the spring. There is no deadline for direct applications, but we would advise you to submit it as early as you can.
