University College Birmingham Admissions

Making your Application

All non-EU international students can apply directly via our online application forms:

Undergraduate application form 

Postgraduate application form

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’ve Applied

Responding to applications

The International Admissions team aim to respond to any new application made directly via the online application form within 5 working days of receipt. However, this can vary during peak application periods (particularly January-March) or if the team require additional information to process your application.

Applicants who apply to transfer to University College Birmingham on to a second year or final year of a course will have their course mapped for entry and the conditions of entry will be stated on UCAS track.

Each application is considered individually and careful consideration is given to all information on your application form, particularly your personal statement, reference and the qualifications you have taken or are in the process of taking. In most cases, a decision to make an offer can be based on this information alone, however we may need to make further enquiries, particularly relating to your immigration status or previous studies in the UK.
