All full-time applications should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) at www.ucas.com.

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

  • 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 £12 if you only apply to one course at the University of West London, or £23 if you wish to apply for more than one course or institution.

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.
