How to apply

Undergraduate studies

Although the application deadline is January 15 every year, you can also apply after this deadline if universities have room in your desired course. You have to submit your application through an online system called UCAS and you can choose up to 5 choices, that is universities or courses, to send your application to.

For a successful application, you will need:

  • Proof of English, such as:
    • IELTS Academic, TOEFL, or CAE certificate – usually at the B2 level, although some courses may require a higher level (you can submit your English certificate after the application deadline)
  • Secondary School Leaving Certificate – a certified English copy (you can submit it after the application deadline in case you have not passed your final exams just yet)
  • Personal Statement
  • Reference Letter
  • Portfolio/Interview/Audition for some courses

Postgraduate studies

British universities do not require their potential students to take entrance exams. Instead, students must prove to their desired institutions their level of English, their overall GPA from their bachelor studies, and their motivation to study in the UK.

For a successful application, you will need:

  • Proof of English – although the requirements for the types of certificates and the results may differ across universities, the IELTS Academic, TOEFL, or CAE certificates are generally recognised
  • Secondary School Leaving Certificate – a certified English copy
  • Transcript of Records (must also include the GPA)
  • University Diploma
  • Personal Statement
  • Reference Letters (contact details for two referees respectively) – in case of relevant work experience, it is strongly recommended to include one academic reference and one professional reference
  • CV

If you are applying for a Master’s course that leads to MPhil, MLitt or MRes, making them research degrees, not taught, you must also submit a Research Proposal of 1 000 words.

We will help you prepare all documents and give you precise instructions how to obtain them.

The majority of postgraduate courses begins in September/October, however, some courses may also have November, January or April intakes. Hence the application deadlines depend on the universities and the courses they have on offer. Either way we still highly recommend to start your application as early as possible. Nevertheless, if you decide you want to try your luck with a last-minute application, there is no need to worry; some courses may have as late deadlines as two weeks prior to the start of the academic year.
