How to apply with UCAS

If you have received an offer from us through Clearing, you now need to make your formal application to us via UCAS.

The steps you need to take to make your formal application to UCAS will depend on your current application status. To help support you with this, please find below the different routes and steps you need to take.

Don’t forget for each route you will need the details of the course offer made to you, so have this to hand.

If you are unsure which route to follow please do contact our dedicated team on 01332 592468, drop us an email at or use the chat function below and we will be happy to support you with this.

You need to carefully consider all the options and offers you currently have before making any decisions. If you wish to take up our offer of a place, you will need to decline all outstanding offers that have been made to you in UCAS Track.

You can still apply but this will be through UCAS Clearing. Simply log in to UCAS Track and decline all your offers. This will then make you eligible for Clearing and you should have the option to add your Clearing choice.
