Making an application

Full-time undergraduate courses

At school or college?

If your present school or college is registered with UCAS (they probably will be) then ask your teacher or careers adviser to help you.

If you want to apply for a full-time first (undergraduate) degree, foundation degree, DipHE or HND course, you need to submit your application via UCAS.

Not at school or college?

 If you’re not at school or college but are based in the UK you can apply through UCAS online independently. You'll need to pay the correct fee and supply the name of your academic reference (who will be contacted directly by UCAS) and submit your application. The UCAS website provides full instructions on the application process and also has a comprehensive guide to applying online.

International student?

For applicants from outside the UK - within the European Union (EU) and worldwide - you should apply online independently unless your school or college is registered with UCAS. You're responsible for paying the correct fees, obtaining and attaching your academic reference and submitting your application to UCAS. Further help and advice is available from British Council offices and other centres overseas. Read more information about making an application if you're an international student

When to apply through UCAS

  • UK students - if you’re planning to start your course with a September start date, UCAS will accept your application from September the previous year.
  • International and EU students - make sure sure your application form is received by UCAS by January of the year you want to start. If you’re applying from outside the EU then you should apply as early as possible. Places on popular courses cannot be guaranteed for applications received after mid-Janaury. You should allow plenty of time to make immigration, travel and accommodation arrangements.

Course codes

The UCAS website gives you code names and numbers for all courses. Make sure you enter the right code on your application form. The institution code for Huddersfield is HUDDS H60.

Deferring your start date

We welcome applications from students who wish to defer entry to their chosen course for one year. Please ensure this is indicated on your application form.

Missed your deadline?

If you miss your deadline, you can still apply for many courses. Please see the UCAS website for more information.
