How to apply

Visit us

We encourage you to come to visit the University prior to applying. If we offer you a place, we will also invite you to visit us, to see the department and campus, and to talk to staff and current students.

Application to all of our courses is through UCAS. Although applications should reach UCAS by the 15th January deadline, we do consider applications received after this date, particularly if there are special circumstances.

Our decision about whether to make an offer of a place is usually based on information on the UCAS form, including your personal statement, reference, and academic grades or predictions. We invite candidates for interview only where there are special circumstances or unusual qualifications.

Diverse applicants

We wish to encourage applications from students from a diverse range of backgrounds, and consider all applications equally, irrespective of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or educational background.  More details for applicants with disabilities or mature applicants can be found via the menu on the left.


Please remember that we aim to be flexible in our admissions policy. If you have any specific enquiries about our entrance requirements, please contact the Admission Tutors.
