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
