How to apply
All students wishing to study full-time undergraduate courses starting in September 2013, should apply online to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) at www.ucas.com. This is the central organisation through which applications are processed for entry to all full-time Honours degrees and Foundation degrees.
For all applicants, there are full instructions at www.ucas.com to make it as easy as possible for prospective students to fill in their online application. An application fee of £12.00 will be charged for one course. For more than one course (up to 5) the total application fee is £23.00.
The UCAS institutional code for UCS is UCS S82. Prospective students should ensure that they indicate the correct course code and campus code on their application. Each UCS Centre has a seperate campus code, and these can be found in the key facts box on each course page.
Except for those applicants whose school or college is registered with UCAS, International and EU applicants from outside the UK apply online independently. Additional advice can be sought from British Council offices and other centres overseas.
For students applying from the UK or any other EU country for entry in September 2013, applications are still being accepted and should be submitted as soon as possible. Applications received after 15 January 2013 will be considered at the universities’ discretion and may depend upon the popularity of the chosen course. Please contact the UCS Infozone for information on current vacancies.
International students should aim to send their application to UCAS no later than 30 June 2013.
UCS recognise the advantages that students can gain from taking a ‘Gap Year’. If students want to apply to UCS but defer entry until the following year, they should indicate this in their application. It is also recommended that students outline briefly on their personal statement their reason for choosing deferred entry. Students will usually be considered on the same basis as applicants for the current year of entry and receive correspondence from UCAS and UCS during the application timetable for that year.
UCS will consider applicants through UCAS Extra, although high demand courses may not be on offer as they may already be oversubscribed.
UCS offers a range of postgraduate opportunities including Masters degrees, Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates, along with Professional and Continuing Professional Development courses (CPD courses).
Students wishing to study a postgraduate course at UCS starting in 2013 can apply directly using the UCS online application form.
