Admission Requirements into UK Universities

Application to Undergraduate Courses: 
To apply for full-time degree courses, foundation degree courses (England only), HNDs and Diploma of Higher Education courses, you acn simply apply through Universities and Colleges Admission Service or UCAS. Applying through UCAS gives you an advantage to apply to at least six different universities and courses. This saves you time, money and hassle of applying to individual universities. Each university and college makes its own decision on whether to offer you admission but the UCAS procedure guarantees that the system works efficiently to a strict timetable. 

You can apply through UCAS using the online system which is a web-based online application system. Using this system gives you the opportunity to apply anywhere, at any time of the day. The internet automatically checks important details like course codes and date of birth and alerts you immediately if you have left any missing field. 

Application Deadline Dates:
There are three application deadlines for courses through UCAS - 15 October, 15 January and 24 March - it is important to check the deadline for your chosen course(s). Contact your nearest British Council office to know the exact dates for application. 

International Applicants

Being an international candidate, you need to be aware of the three application deadlines but at the same time you should also be aware that not too many universities and colleges will consider your application up until 30 June 2010. 
Important Dates: 

15 January 2010 : Application deadline for the receipt at UCAS of applications for all courses except those listed above with a 15 October deadline, and art and design courses with a 24 March deadline.

24 March 2010: Application deadline for the receipt at UCAS of applications for art and design courses except those listed with a 15 January deadline. 

30 June 2010 : If you send your application to us by this date, we will send it to your chosen universities and colleges. If we receive your application after this date, you'll be entered into Clearing. 
Course Start Dates

Most of the courses start from September or October while some start between January and May. For courses that start between January and May, you may need to apply before the three application deadlines above, as the universities and colleges will need time to consider your application.
Application Fee through UCAS:
The current fee for applying through UCAS is £9 GBP for a single choice and £19 for up to six choices. You can make only one application a year through the UCAS application process. 

UCAS provides each applicant with a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) enabling them to monitor the progress of their application and to record choices through its ‘Track’ service available 24 hours/seven days on the UCAS website.
