Thinking of applying to university?

Choosing your next steps can always be tricky and with lots of options available, it’s important to do your research. To support you in this process, we’ve put together information to aid your decision-making when considering where your future will take you. 

With UCAS now open for 2021 application, you have the opportunity to study a subject you’re passionate about, gain your independence, enjoy new experiences and make life-long friends - there are so many experiences that going to university can give you! All at the same time as securing a degree and the skills and knowledge you need to give you a head start in your career. 

We know early research is important in helping you find the right university for you, so we want to give you as many opportunities as possible to discuss your university options. This is why we’re providing this support digitally - you can come meet our advisers at a UCAS virtual exhibition, or ask questions during one of our many live streams throughout the year, covering topics from writing personal statements, student finance to student life and more. 

One of the best ways to find out if we’re the right university and course for you is at an Open Day, whether online or on campus. Book onto a Digital Open Day on Saturday 17 October or join us on Saturday 14 November or Saturday 5 December where we hope to be back on campus.
