How to Apply (UCAB) -

How to Apply for UCAB

There are two different ways to apply for our courses, for Full Time Degree Courses you will need to apply through UCAS, for Part Time Degree Courses, internal Top-Ups, internal level 3 progressing students and our brand new Masters programmes, you can apply directly to the College.

Full Time Degree Courses

If you want to apply for a full time BSc Degree, Foundation Degree or HND course, you need to submit your application via UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) on the UCAS website.

You can ask your teacher or careers adviser to help if you’re at school or college. If you’re not at school or college but are based in the UK, you can apply online independently. You will need to pay the correct fee and supply the name of the academic reference (who will be contacted directly by UCAS) and then submit your application. The UCAS website provides full instructions on the application process and also has a comprehensive guide called ‘Applying Online’.

For non-home applicants from outside the UK (within the EU and worldwide), you should also apply online independently unless your school or college is registered with UCAS. Again, you are responsible for paying the correct fees, obtaining and attaching the academic reference and submitting the completed application to UCAS. Further help and advice is available from British Council offices.

Within the context of this panel, identification of the appropriate additional evidence required to accurately predict applicant’s suitability and ability to complete the accredited parts of the programme will be discussed.
