How to apply

Applications for most courses should be made direct to the University via our online application form. Simply click on the 'Apply Now' button you will see on each of our course entries.

Whilst most of our courses do not set an exact deadline for applications, you are advised to apply early to secure your place and organise any sponsorship or funding.

Overseas students should submit applications to us by no later than 31 July for courses starting in early September or 1st December for courses that commence in January. This allows sufficient time to process our decision, for you to obtain visas and to organise your accommodation and travel arrangements.

There are some courses where the above does not apply:

  • Law Professional Courses
    Students should apply direct to the professional body. Discover more

  • Graduate Teaching Training Courses
    Students should apply through UCAS Teacher Training. Discover more

  • Social Work and NHS
    Applications are direct to the university, but strict deadlines apply. Discover more
