How to Apply
Application to all of our undergraduate programmes is through the national admissions service UCAS. Applications are made online through the UCAS website. There is no longer a paper application form.
The number of courses you can apply for at all UK universities is a maximum of five courses.
You do have to pay to apply for undergraduate programmes (the money goes to UCAS and not the University).The cost of making an application is £11 for 2012 entry and £12 for 2013 entry if you only apply to one course at a single university or college, or £22 for 2012 entry and £23 for 2013 entry for two to five course applications.

When to apply
If you are a UK or EU student, you should aim to apply between 1 September 2012 and 15 January 2013 for admission in October 2013.
If you miss the January deadline, you are still welcome to apply but should note that some programmes may be full by this point.
If you are living outside the EU you may apply between 1 September 2011 and 30 June 2012 for admission in October 2012. For entry in October 2013 you may apply between 1 September 2012. and 30 June 2013. However you should still try and apply by 15 January as courses may fill up by this point.
Our UCAS code is READG R12.
There is no campus code for our courses (except the foundation degrees offered by our Partner Colleges - visit the Foundation degrees course information page for more information)
Gap year/deferred entry
We welcome deferred entry applications. You can apply between 1 September 2011 and 15 January 2012 even if you intend to start your degree programme in October 2013. You will need to show on your UCAS application that you want deferred admission. If your plans change during the year we can usually change our offer accordingly – so do keep us informed.
