Applying for an undergraduate course

How to apply for our undergraduate courses through UCAS, including specific advice for international applicants and mature students.

Check you entry requirements

Check the entry requirements

All our courses have course-specific entry requirements. Before you apply, check that you meet the entry requirements for the course you are interested in.

You can apply for an undergraduate course if you are working towards or have completed a qualification at either:

  • Level 3 (A levels, International Baccalaureate, Scottish Highers, Access to Higher Education or similar)
  • Level 4 (BTEC Professional Diplomas, Certificates and Awards, NVQs at Level 4, Key Skills Level 4 and Certificates of Higher Education or similar)

You can also apply if you already hold a degree-level qualification. This may have implications for funding, and your visa if you are an international student.

Research your course

Before you apply, you should research the course you want to study. Read the UCAS guide on choosing a course.

UCAS is the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service. It is a charitable organisation that handles applications for UK universities.

When to apply

You should submit your application between mid-September and 15 January 2017. If you apply after 15 January, we can’t guarantee there will still be places on your course.

Find out more about the application deadlines on the UCAS website or check the important deadlines from our application timeline.

Course information

To apply through UCAS, you will need:

  • the UCAS code of your chosen course, which you can find on the course information page in the prospectus
  • the institution code for the University of Bath, which is B16

UCAS application form

You will need to fill out a form on the UCAS website to apply. UCAS provides guidance on filling out the application, which will help you:

  • select your course choices
  • write a personal statement
  • get a reference
  • understand and pay your application fees

Applying as an international student

The application process for international students is the same as it is for everyone else. You still need to apply through UCAS.

Visa requirements

As well as meeting our course entry requirements, you have to provide proof of your level of English. This is because you need to meet the Home Office required standards to get a Tier 4 Visa to enter the country for study.
