You may apply either through the national UCAS university admissions system, or at any time directly to the University using our own online application form. Our UCAS code is B90.
The University’s two-year degree attracts a wide range of applicants from those who have recently completed A-levels (or equivalent) to more mature students. Age is no barrier to learning and we welcome all applications from suitably qualified students
We are happy to consider all international applications and if you are an international student, you may find it useful to visit our international pages for details of entry requirements from your home country.
The University is a UKVI Tier 4 Sponsor.
If English is not your first language, please check our undergraduate English language requirements. If your English levels don’t meet our minimum requirements, you may be interested in applying for our Pre-sessional English Language Foundation Programmes.
Wherever possible, you will be invited to the University to meet the Admissions Tutor for an informal interview and to have a tour of our campus. If you are an international applicant, it may not be possible for you to visit in person, so if the Admissions Tutor has any queries about your application you may be conducted by Skype, email or phone.
Mature Home students (over 21) may be given an offer to study at the University based on their experience, together with any formal qualifications they hold. We also invite mature students to attend a selection “tutorial-style” interview either at the University or via Skype. The tutorial-style interview requires candidates to prepare by reading a research paper and then to discuss their findings with the Admissions Tutor. Mature International students will be offered the same opportunities as home students, together with the appropriate English Language assessment, including reading, writing, speaking and listening via Skype and email. Such students must demonstrate proficiency at the appropriate level in all four elements of the English Language assessment and must satisfy the Admissions Tutor during the tutorial-style interview of their ability to study on the course for which the offer is being made.
The Admissions Assistant for Psychology would be happy to answer any questions you may have:
