When to apply?

UCAS advises applicants to work on their personal statements during the autumn term with a view to submitting their applications by 15 January. This is in order to guarantee that all the universities you are applying to will consider your application.

However, we will always welcome later applications, as we may still have places available right up until the course start date.

When to apply?

Interviews, portfolios and auditions

Once we have received your application, we will normally invite you to an interview, during which you will have the opportunity to find out more about the course and the College and we will be able to assess whether the course you’ve applied for is the right one for you. For creative arts courses, the interview will include a review of your portfolio (for art, design and production courses) or an audition (for performance courses). Your interview invitation will include details of what to include in your portfolio, or what your audition will involve.

For advice on preparing portfolios and auditions, visit our creative applications page.

Your offer

Offering you a place: If we decide to offer you a place, your offer will be displayed on UCAS Track. Your offer may be unconditional, or it may be on condition that you achieve certain grades in your current studies.

Accepting your offer: Once you have received offers from all the universities you applied to, UCAS will require you to accept one of your offers as your ‘firm’ choice. You will also have the option of choosing one offer as your ‘insurance’ choice. UCAS will set you a deadline in the spring by which you must let them know which offers you wish to accept. It is important that you accept via UCAS by your deadline date, otherwise UCAS will assume you don’t wish to accept any offers.
