How to apply for an undergraduate course

For undergraduate courses starting in September 2023 (including extended and foundation degrees), you should submit your application by the 25 January UCAS equal consideration deadline. Universities must consider all applications received by this time equally, and do not have to consider applications received after the deadline.

Don’t forget to use a personal email address rather than a school or college one when applying, as this may become inactive at a certain point and you’ll miss out on vital information from us.
