If you don't have a UCAS account don't worry, you're just a few steps away from being able to apply through Clearing and starting your studies this year.
You’ll be asked for some personal details, be provided with a username, asked to create a password, and set your security questions. You might see some odd terms like "buzzword" - don't let that put you off though, you don't need one! There will be a few other questions you need to answer as you are applying independently and not through a school or college.
Make sure you enter your first name and middle name(s) exactly as they appear on official documents like your passport or driving licence. If you only have one name, enter it in both the first name and last name fields on the application.
Key points to note:
Add as much information as you can about your qualifications from secondary education onwards.
Please complete this with the details about any A Level, BTEC or equivalent qualifications you have. If you have higher level qualifications, or any previous university level study then please include this information. You should also list your GCSE or comparable grades.
We will need to check your qualifications as part of the registration process. We will usually ask to see:
Remember we offer Foundation Years that help people without formal qualifications to access university. It is more important to us that you are keen to learn now than what you have achieved in the past.
You can add details for up to five previous jobs.
Once your form has been processed by UCAS, you will be able to add your Clearing choice. The course details will be on the offer email we’ve sent to you from email@example.com
You don't have to stress and spend a lot of time on this! But it does give you an opportunity to tell us why you are applying for university.
Review your application and make any edits you want. If you are happy the details are correct then read and agree to the declaration. You don't need a reference, so just tick the box to say no reference is required.
The application fee for 2022 applications will be £22.00 for one choice, or £26.50 for two – five choices.
