Applying if you're an international student

Wherever you're coming from, UCA is ready to welcome you. We have a dedicated admissions team to help you with your application journey - but to get you started, here's the information you need to make your application.

If you are from a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, and you wish to apply for a full-time undergraduate course, you will need to apply through UCAS.

If you are applying for a pre-degree, part-time undergraduate or postgraduate course, you should apply directly to us using UCA’s online application form for your chosen course. If you are applying for postgraduate research you should apply directly to us using the research proposal form.

Please note: As you will be arriving in the UK after January 1, 2021, you'll need to you’ll need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme by 30 June 2021.

If you are applying for courses from September 2021, then you will no longer be eligible for home fee status or financial support, and you will need a visa.
