UCAS Application

We also recommend that you check the Undergraduate Admissions Website.

UCAS application

Your online application must be submitted to UCAS by 6 pm (UK time) on 15 October. You can express a preference for a particular college or submit an open application. If you make an open application, you will be assigned to a college which has had relatively fewer applications for your course in the current admissions round. Tutors do not distinguish in any way between those candidates who have chosen a college and those who have submitted an open application. We try to make sure that the deserving candidates find a place. Do not agonise over which colleges are going to have big entries and which small - this is unpredictable from year to year.
