How to apply

UK / EU students applying for a full-time course for September 2017

All full-time applications must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) at www.ucas.com - see UWL courses on www.ucas.com.

The information below will guide you through the application process but if you have any questions about applying to one of our courses, please don't hesitate to contact us on courses@uwl.ac.uk or call 0800 036 8888, and we will be happy to help.

You can apply for up to five courses online through the UCAS website, either:

  • through your school or college who are registered with UCAS


  • independently if you do not belong to a UK school or college.

Apply to the University of West London using our institution code W05 and the UCAS code given for the course in our course search.

When you complete your application, you will need to pay a fee to UCAS. Currently this fee is £13 if you only apply to one course at the University of West London, or £24 if you wish to apply for more than one course or institution.

You are advised to apply before the initial UCAS deadline of 15 January 2017 as courses can fill up. Please note however that we do continue to accept applications after this date.

UCAS Extra

If you have used up all five of your UCAS choices and you weren’t accepted or have declined all the offers you received, you can add another choice through UCAS Extra

This service is available from 25 February until early July. If Extra is available to you, it will show up as a button when you sign in to track your application on the UCAS website.

What happens next

When UCAS sends us a copy of your application, we consider whether to offer you a place based on your qualifications, personal statement and referee's report. UCAS will let you know what we have decided.

As soon as individual courses become full, we will close them and no further applications for those courses will be accepted.

If you are given a conditional offer from us, and your results meet the conditions of the offer, you will receive a letter confirming your place.

If you narrowly miss the grades of your offer, we will consider your application again and you may still be offered a place.
