Pre-degree applications

Pre-degree applications

Applying for pre-degree courses within UCA's School of Further Education is simple and quick - whether you're based in the UK or abroad.

All you need to do is visit the page of the course you've chosen, and fill in the online application form. Visit our course pages to find your course.

If you're a UK student, the best time to apply is between December and March - this gives you plenty of time to prepare for your studies. Applications will still be accepted for consideration after 31 March deadline.

If you're coming to the UK from abroad then we welcome applications all year round - however, if you can apply to us before 31 March then that will give you time to organise your student visa and accommodation (if they're required).

When we get your application we’ll send you an email with your login details for the applicant portal - this is where you'll access all the information you'll need through your applicant journey.

If you're successful in receiving an offer, we'll invite you to join us on an Applicant Day. This will give you the chance to get to know your peers, view student work, and gain all the information you need and want about life at UCA.

We'll send you details on these events through the applicant portal.
