The UCAS Tariff is the system for allocating points to qualifications. This allows you to use a range of different applications to apply for your HE course.

All our entry requirements for our HE courses are set as UCAS points. This means you can see clearly what qualifications you will need to study our courses.

More information about UCAS Tariffs can be found here: UCAS Tariff Calculator

UK and EU student should apply for through UCAS. You will need to register on the UCAS website. Your registration is free, but you will need to pay to make your application. The charge for your application is £12 if you are applying to one college/university for one course or £24 if you are applying to more than one.

Please complete your application form in full. The more information you can provide, the easier it is to make a decision on your application.

If you are applying through a school or college, your tutor will see your application before it is sent to us. This is because they will provide a reference for you. If you are applying independently, you are responsible for obtaining and attaching your reference and submitting your completed application form. References should be completed by someone who can talk about your suitability for the course.
