Applying for a full-time undergraduate course starting in 2009

If you’re now entering the final year of your course at college or already have completed qualifications and are planning to apply for full-time undergraduate Higher Education courses commencing in September 2009, applications can now be submitted through UCAS. Applications should be made online at www.ucas.ac.uk.  

Remember, that in order to guarantee that your chosen universities will look at your application form, you must apply by UCAS’ early application deadline of 15th January 2009. Applications received at UCAS after this date will only be considered if there are remaining vacancies on the course you’ve applied for after ‘early’ applicants have been considered.

If you’re applying through a college:

Your college should guide you through the application process. When completing the application form through a college, you’ll need to obtain their UCAS ‘buzzword’ in order to use the system. Check with your college for more information.

If you’re applying independently:

You can apply online to UCAS independently. Access the UCAS website and click ‘Apply’. You’ll be asked to register your details before an account is created for you. Once your account has been confirmed and you have a username and password, you can then log in and complete the online application form.

If you experience any technical difficulties in using the application system, UCAS have a dedicated Technical Support team to provide support for users. There are useful FAQs and known issues which you can find on their website. If these don’t resolve the problem you can contact the UCAS webmaster.

Updated: 18.10.08 The Guardian’s ‘Road to University’ has a great feature about completing the UCAS online application that’s worth a look.

Some of you may be aware that we changed our name from UCE Birmingham to Birmingham City University back in autumn 2007. For those applying to the university through UCAS, please ensure you make a note of our new institution code:

There’s still time to find a place on a degree course this September

A variety of diverse undergraduate courses within the field of business are currently available. Both single and joint honours courses offer students the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge which are valued by employers. From gaining knowledge and understanding in areas such as accountancy, finance, management, marketing and human resources to developing personal skills in teamwork, presentation techniques and critical thinking, these degree courses also offer great opportunities for students to undertake an industrial placement year or study abroad for a semester.

Undergraduate courses in engineering are on offer to suitably qualified applicants who are seeking to study a BEng degree at an innovative and well regarded establishment. Many of our engineering degrees offered at our Faculty of Technology, Innovation and Development incorporate professional accreditation from the Institute of Engineering and Technology. We offer programmes with IET accreditation in automotive, mechanical, electronic, manufacturing systems and telecommunications and networks engineering.
