You can apply for our part-time undergraduate degrees, as well as our online postgraduate degrees, directly with us.
You can also apply for our full-time undergraduate degrees directly and this is the best option if you don’t have the UCAS points, have been out of education for a longer period of time, or have a non-standard educational background.

Prepare your portfolio or writing sample (applicable to certain courses only).
