Applying to study an undergraduate degree at Brighton through UCAS
If you’re a student at a college or school in the UK, you’ll need to apply to study at the University of Brighton through UCAS. Applying with UCAS allows you to choose up to five different courses at different institutions.
The main cycle of applications opens in September and the main deadline is in January. We’d recommend you try to apply in the main cycle of applications, but try not to worry if you can’t as we typically still have lots of places for courses in our School of Business and Law available in UCAS Extra and Clearing.
You’ll need to register for an account with UCAS, completing information about your school and the subjects you’re interested in. Once you’ve researched which courses you’d like to study and have found the universities you’d like to apply to, then it’s time to begin your application.
Completing your application will take some time as there’s lots of personal details to add, as well as info about your education and personal interests. There’s also your personal statement section where you get to express who you are and what you’re passionate about.
Writing a personal statement can feel overwhelming but there’s lots of advice online and we’d recommend speaking to your teachers and peers for guidance. UCAS publish a handy blog on how to write a personal statement that you might find useful.
UCAS has a handy status tool that shows your progress in completing your application. You can log in and out at any time, and don’t need to complete your application in one go.
Part of the application process is adding your choices. If you want to come and study with us (yay!), you’ll need our institution code – B72 (BRITN) and the UCAS course code, which you can find on our website.
Once you’ve selected up to five choices, you can then mark the section as complete and get ready to submit your application. You’ll need to make sure all sections are completed and ready to send. If you get stuck at any point, UCAS have published some guidance on their website.
After January, UCAS Extra opens between February and June. If you’ve already applied for five courses through UCAS and don’t have any offers, you can apply for additional places at universities using UCAS Extra. UCAS Clearing then opens in July.
If you need additional guidance, the UCAS application process is explained in more detail on their website.
