How do I choose the right course for me?
Selecting a course is vital. Our Applicant Relations team is available on email at study@uel.ac.uk to provide support if you are unsure about a course being right for you. Alternatively, you can send an enquiry to our Information Advice and Guidance team.

What information should I gather before applying?
Before you make your application make sure you have the following ready:

1. Personal Statement

Personal statements are very important as it gives you the opportunity to write your motives for wanting to study the course of your choice. For assistance on writing your supporting statement visit the UCAS supporting statement page or speak to our Information Advice and Guidance team.

2. Information on your qualification/s

You will need to confirm level of qualification/s, awarding body and grade. Please note, we require a copy of your qualifications at the point of application and we may request to see the hard copy when you enrol. For certificates which may have been misplaced or lost, it would be a good idea to request replacement, so you have them ready for enrolment.

3. References

For your application we require at least one reference. Your referee can be either your tutors or employers. Please note we cannot accept references from family members, or friends.

4. English Language

If your undergraduate degree is not from the UK, we may require evidence of a satisfactory English Language qualification or test.

When should I submit my application?
Applications for our January 2021 and September 2021 courses are now open. 

How do I apply?
- January 2021 - Applications for full time undergraduate courses can be made via our website.
- September 2021 - Applications for full time undergraduate courses are made via UCAS here.

How much does it cost to apply?

How will my application be assessed?
At UEL we take a broad ranging holistic view of all applications we receive; we look at the Applicant and not just the application – the things we look at include:

  • Qualifications achieved prior to your application
  • Predicted grades of any qualifications you are currently studying
  • Personal statement
  • Prior work experience and skills gained
  • Portfolio of work (where appropriate)
  • Interview/assessment/audition (where appropriate)

How long will it take to get a decision?
We aim to come back to you regarding your application within 10 working days. For courses that require portfolios / interviews / auditions this may take slightly longer.

How do I track the progress or my application?
- If you have applied via UCAS, you can log in to your UCAS Track.

- If you applied direct to UEL you will be able to check progress and contact Admissions via your UEL Applicant Portal – a link to this will be sent upon completion of the direct application.
