We recommend that, given the current global situation, you look at our Coronavirus advice and guidance pages. These are updated regularly as national and international advice changes. 

We accept a range of qualifications from all over the world to ensure that wherever you are from, you will be able to study at undergraduate level with us. These requirements do vary from country-to-country, so it’s important that you know what qualifications you need.

To find out your requirements, just visit the Your Country page.

To study full-time, you can either apply via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), directly to us or through one of our in-country representatives, which you can find through the ‘Your Country’ page.

To study part-time you should apply directly to the University.

The UCAS application process is the main tool which is used by applicants to secure a place at a UK university. It is very straightforward, and all you need is our Institution Code, which is C10, alongside the course code you are interested in studying. You can find the UCAS course code on our course pages. Once you have that, you need to complete the online form. This will include your qualifications or expected qualifications, personal statement, and contact details for a referee. 

We are more than happy if you decide to apply for undergraduate study directly. The application process is very similar to applying via UCAS and you will need to provide the same information – the main difference is that you will be in direct contact with us straight away. Relevant courses will have direct application links on them.

Our applying section will guide you through the process in an easy-to-understand step-by-step.


You can also contact our recruitment partner, InUni, to start your application. The InUni team will support and guide you throughout your admission journey​.

English is not my first language

To prepare you for study with us in the UK we have three different options available. These depend on your qualification level in English or personal requirements before starting your main degree course. In each case, you will learn in a welcoming environment, supported by our tutors and with access to our fantastic campus facilities in the historic and cosmopolitan city of Canterbury.

Our International Foundation Programme is designed to fully prepare you for undergraduate degree-level study. There are two possible versions of this course depending on your academic qualifications and English language level. 

You can find out all about our International Foundation Programme course options here.
