International Application

How to apply

Students from outside the European Union can apply to us directly while applicants for undergraduate courses can also apply via Universities and Colleges Admissions System (UCAS). Here is our step-by-step guide to finding a place at University College Birmingham.

All non-EU international students can apply directly via our online application forms. Please choose the application below which corresponds to the level, of course, you are interested in studying. 

Applying through UCAS

Undergraduate applicants can also apply via UCAS, if they wish to apply to more than one university. To access the system visit the UCAS website where you will find full instructions and guidance there to help you through the application process.

Thorough guidance on the UCAS process and the stages that your application will go through is available here.

Non-EU international applicants who apply directly via the online form will go through a different cycle.

After you have applied

The International Admissions team aim to respond to any new application made directly via the online application form within 5 working days of receipt.
