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.

Deadlines for September 2024 entry:

  • Application deadline: Monday 29 July 2024
  • Deposit deadline: Monday 5 August 2024
  • CAS deadline: Friday 17 August 2024

We would always advise you to apply and provide all the necessary information as soon as you can, as all these deadlines are subject to change if a course reaches capacity before the deadline.

Applying directly to UCA

The benefits of applying directly to us are:

  • There is no application fee (up to £24 via UCAS).
  • You are not impacted by the ‘equal consideration’ early deadline that UCAS set. We do however encourage you to apply as soon as possible so you have enough time to organise your student visa, if you need one, and to apply for a place in University accommodation.
  • There are no ‘declined by default’ deadlines.
  • You can track your application through our online ‘Applicant Portal’.

If you are applying to more than one university in the UK, then you should apply to us through UCAS.

Visit our visas and immigration page for more information about applying to study in the UK and our equivalent qualifications page to discover if we accept your non-UK qualification.
