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). All non-EU international students can apply directly via our online application form.

To access and complete the form, you will first need to register and then choose the level of study you are interested in applying for. Once submitted, your application will be assessed by our Admissions Team, and an offer will be made based on the supplied information and submitted documents. 

A list of countries that we have country-specific information available can be found here. Where applicable, our regional offices and educational agents can also offer additional support with your application.
