Your application

Students applying for full time university level courses must use the UCAS online application system at www.ucas.ac.uk.

The date that your application needs to arrive with UCAS depends on your university and course choices, so you will need to check the application deadlines on the UCAS website to ensure you apply before the deadline date. Note: If you miss the deadline date, don’t despair, contact us immediately and we’ll advise on your next step.

Once you register on the UCAS site, keep a note of your login and password.

To apply, you will need our Institution Code: H65, along with the UCAS Code for your chosen course - you can find this on the relevant course page on this website.

Your completed application is then sent from UCAS to the universities and colleges you have chosen. If you need help with the application process, get in touch.

Using UCAS Apply

What happens next

When we receive your application from UCAS, we will write to you to invite you to attend an interview. After considering your application and interview, we will contact UCAS with our decision.

UCAS have an online tracking system, called Track, which will regularly be updated throughout the application process. Keep checking this and make sure you reply to the offers you receive. You should also receive a letter from both UCAS and ourselves with confirmation of any offer made.

What to do next

If you are accepted, UCAS will send you a letter of confirmation. If your grades are higher or lower than expected, or if you change your mind, there are other options available. Check Track and look for course vacancies on the UCAS website to find an alternative place, or come and talk to us.

UCAS receive some exam results and send them to the universities and colleges. For others, you may need to send your results to your chosen universities yourself.

And finally...

You need to make sure you have everything ready, such as accommodation, finances, travel arrangements, books and equipment required for the course. If in doubt about any of these things, contact us for help.
