UCAS (the Universities and College Admissions Service) is the central application service for all full-time undergraduate courses in the UK. All applications must be made online at ucas.com. Applications to join us in September 2019 can be submitted from 5th September 2018 onwards.

The institution code for University Centre St Helens is: STHEL S51

1. Complete your UCAS application form online
2. Send the application form to your referee
3. Your referee will check your details and add their reference
4. Once complete, you will need to pay for your application online, using a credit or debit card
5. Your sixth form or college will submit your UCAS application on your behalf
6. You will be able to track your applications online using UCAS track

If you apply after the UCAS deadline (15th January 2019), we will still accept your application but cannot guarantee that places will still be available.

Independent Applicants in the UK

UK applicants who are not at college or sixth form should apply online independently. This is common if you are a mature applicant who will not be able to seek advice from a teacher. You will be responsible for paying the application fee and you should contact your referee, to ensure that they are willing to complete a reference online for you. Online, you will be required to supply their contact details, so that UCAS can contact them to request the reference. 

Should you need assistance with an application, University Centre St Helens has a dedicated Careers Adviser, who is able to offer support and assistance with applications to University Centre St Helens. If you wish to make an appointment, please call 0800 99 66 99. 

All Applicants

If you are a non-EU/EEA/Swiss national, you may need to apply for a Tier 4 visa in order to enter and study in the UK. However, please note that University Centre St Helens does not hold a Tier 4 Sponsor Licence to support student visa applications.

Full instructions and further guidance on how to apply are available at ucas.com/how-it-all-works/undergraduate.
