Pre-degree applications

FE courses

How to apply

Please apply directly to us using the individual online application form for your chosen pre-degree course. You'll find this on the specific course information page. 

When to apply - UK students

We encourage you to apply between December and March as this will give you plenty of time to prepare for your studies. Applications will still be accepted for consideration after 31 March deadline.

When to apply - International & EU students

We accept applications from international and EU students throughout the year. There’s no set deadline but we encourage you to apply by 31 March so you have enough time to organise your student visa and accommodation if you need them.

What happens next?

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.  

Offer holder webinars

As we are currently unable to host in-person events on campus, if you are successful in receiving an offer, you will be invited to attend two Offer Holder Webinars:

Course Offer Holder Webinar - Run by the course team, this will give you the opportunity to meet the course team, hear from current students, view student work, see the course facilities and ask any questions you have.

Campus Offer Holder Webinar - This will provide information about the campus and the local area.

We’ll send you more details through the applicant portal after we've received your application.
