Undergraduate Applications

We look forward to receiving your application. For undergraduate and foundation degrees, we recommend you apply online through UCAS.

Applying via UCAS

You can apply for up to five different degree courses at up to five different institutions through UCAS (the national Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Your application is sent to all five  universities which you have applied to at the same time.  There is no need to choose a first choice university at this stage.

Each course has a UCAS code that you will find on our Course pages or in our prospectus. You will need to know the UCAS code for the course you want to apply for when you make your application.

Deadlines and important dates

  • 1 September UCAS opens for applications for courses starting in September/October the following year.
  • 15 January – Recommended application date for UK and other EU applicants.
  • 30 June – Closing date for international (non-EU) applicants. (We do advise you to apply earlier if possible though.)
  • July / August – applications can still be submitted via UCAS but you can only apply to one university at a time in July and August (known as “Clearing”)

When you are applying to UCAS you will also need the UCAS institution code for the university. The UCAS code for the University of Chichester is (CHICH) C58.

Accepting an offer of a place

Your university offer(s) will be notified to you via your UCAS account and you can select a first (“firm”) choice and, if you wish, a second (“insurance”) choice via UCAS who will then inform the universities of your decision.

Tuition fee deposit

If you wish to accept an offer from the University of Chichester, you will be expected to pay a deposit of £2,000 before a UKVI Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) will be issued to you.

The deposit will be refunded, in full, if the University withdraws the programme.

Otherwise, the deposit will only be refunded, minus a £250 administration charge, if the applicant provides written evidence of being refused a visa to join the programme, through no fault of his or her own. Where the applicant has not disclosed relevant previous study, or does not have sufficient funds in the bank account for the relevant period, are examples of where it would be deemed the applicant’s responsibility for not securing a visa.
