Applying for the Foundation Year

All applications are made on-line through UCAS. You may want to arrange to visit the department in advance of an application or contact us for advice if you need help.

UCAS administer the applications and then pass them to the University to consider. They have various deadlines for applications, but we understand that not all Foundation applicants are fully aware of these, especially if they are not currently in education.

If you apply by the 15th January and are based in the UK, all suitable applicants will be invited to one of our Interview Days. If you apply after this but by the 30th June, we will invite you for an individual interview unless you have already seen us. For those based overseas, we will make a decision based on your application and any other correspondence we have had from you.

After the 30th June it may still be possible for us to consider applications up until September, for courses starting at the end of September (depending on places being available). During this time UCAS operate a system called 'Clearing' - please contact us for advice if you want to apply during this period.
