UCAS Application Guide

Completing your UCAS application is the first step in joining Europe’s largest and most connected music college

Due to UK COVID-19 restrictions, the undergraduate UCAS application deadline has now been extended to Friday 29th January at 18:00 (UK time). This is to allow both students and their teachers additional time to complete applications and references.

Applications that are submitted after this date are considered after all the January equal consideration deadline applications have been processed.

What are the benefits of applying by the equal consideration deadline?

  1. Guaranteed consideration for your chosen course.*
  2. More availability when booking your audition/interview slot.
  3. Receive an offer sooner – the earlier you apply the faster we can process your application.
  4. Be one of the first to confirm your place for September 2021.
  5. More time to organise your finances and accommodation.

As an offer holder, you will also gain access to exclusive content, webinars and events.

So what are you waiting for? Get your application in before 6pm on 29th January to start your life in music at Europe’s largest, most connected music college.

How does the UCAS application work?

When you apply to UCAS, you’ll be asked to submit up to five options for the courses you’d like to study at the institutes you’d like to join. You’ll find all our courses listed on the UCAS website, along with our course and campus codes. To make an application through UCAS, you’ll need to go to www.ucas.com and register before you can submit any choices.

What to include in your UCAS application

Your UCAS application will need to include the following:

    • A list of all your academic achievements, including any pending qualifications
    • A Personal Statement (maximum 4,000 characters)
    • A reference from either a teacher, tutor or employer

What happens after I’ve applied?

When we receive your UCAS application, we’ll invite you for an audition or interview. If it’s not possible for you to attend in person, other options available include a Zoom interview or a demo submission. If you meet the entry criteria for the course you’ve selected, we’ll offer you a place.

International applicants

After you’ve applied via UCAS, you’ll be invited to attend an audition or interview. If it’s not possible for you to attend in person, other options available include a Zoom interview or a demo submission.

What happens next?

If your audition is successful, we’ll provide you with a ‘conditional offer’ (which means it’s pending until we receive your exam results and certificates) or an ‘unconditional offer’ (meaning you’ve met the entry criteria for the course and don’t need to give us any additional information).

Your offer will be announced via UCAS’s ‘Track’ facility.
