How To Apply

Applying Via UCAS

Applications to all our HND Foundation Degree and Degree programmes are made online via the UCAS website: www.ucas.com/apply

The UCAS website provides full instructions on how to register and complete an application.

If you haven't done so already, then you will need to register for an account. For 2020 entry, the application fee is £20 for a single choice, or £25 for multiple choices.

When applying for a course, you will need to use the institution code, campus code and course code as provided on each course page or infosheet.

Deadlines for UCAS Applications

Although the UCAS deadline for applications is 15th January 2019, we do accept applications throughout the year, up to the end of August.

However, we recommend that you apply as early as possible in order to secure your offer and to allow time for getting any student finance in place.

Part-time Students

Since Part-time study options vary by duration and study mode, you'll need to apply direct to New College via the online application form. A hard copy form is also available to download.


Applications are considered on their individual merits. The typical entry requirements listed on our website are stated in terms of A levels, BTECs or Access Diplomas. However, we are happy to accept equivalent, alternative qualifications.

We will also consider applications from individuals with combinations of qualifications or relevant work experience.


On receiving your application we will invite you for an interview. Some courses such as Media Make-Up or Textiles will require you to bring a portfolio of work along to your interview. Others such as Early Years, Health and Social Care or Sports Coaching and Development will require you to undergo a DBS Check.

For help with your application or further information on any of our courses contact our Higher Education team.
