We also have a dedicated team of country-specific International Officers who can answer any questions you may have. Submit an enquiry and we’ll be in touch!

  2. Submit an application

    We’ve made it easier than ever to make an application using our online system - once you’ve signed up, you’re ready to go! After submitting your contact details and choosing your course, you’ll be asked to upload a personal statement and academic certificates/transcripts.

  3. Receive an offer

    Our admissions team will aim to process your application as soon as possible. If your application is successful, you’ll be issued with a conditional or unconditional offer. If conditional, you will need to satisfy any remaining conditions before receiving your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). The CAS allows you to apply for your Tier 4 Visa - Full explanation of the CAS process.

  5. Apply for accommodation

    Applications for University accommodation open in April and the latest you can apply is August. You will receive information on how to apply for accommodation by email before applications open once you have paid a deposit or made us your firm choice on UCAS. Following the deadline, the University will be in touch regarding your application and you’ll be allocated your room once your place has been confirmed. You can also book private or partner accommodation if you prefer.

  6. Apply for a student Visa

    Once you have obtained your CAS, you’ll be able to apply for your Tier 4 Visa which allows you to study in the UK. We recommend students do this as soon as possible, three months before the course start date. You must ensure you have the correct documents and are fully prepared for the visa application process before you start - Full break-down of requirements.
