If you’re over 18 years and looking to study a BA degree, you can apply to one of our undergraduate courses. We offer 18 highly-specialised degrees in art, design and media, providing students with access to state-of-the-art facilities and industry expertise. Follow our step-by-step guide below to begin making your application.
1. Note our UCAS Codes
To apply through UCAS you’ll need our institution code P65 and the relevant course code - which is available on each course page.
2. Login to UCAS Apply
You can apply to all of our undergraduate courses through UCAS. Click here to login and if you need any support you can call our friendly Admissions team on +44 (0)1752 203400. Remember, the deadline for the majority of courses is 18:00 on 15 January (UK time) if you are applying for 2020 entry.
You can view entry requirements for each degree on our course pages and consult the UCAS Tariff Table. We recognise the value of a variety of qualifications and relevant experience and welcome applications from students who have followed less traditional routes.
3. Arrange a visit or meet us in a city near you!
If your application meets our entry requirements, we’ll invite you to an informal discussion about your work with one of our academics. This might take place before or after you receive an offer from us. We know there's more to applicants than the information noted on a personal statement, so we’re keen to meet you and see your creative potential for real.
If you are unable to travel or have already attended an Open Day, this meet can take place online via Google Meet, Whatsapp, or a phone call. We will ask you to email a digital portfolio or showreel to us in advance, and arrange an interview slot with our Admissions team in advance. For more information on preparing for an interview at Plymouth College of Art, check out our academic staff's top tips.
Open Days & Campus Visits
You can also come along to one of our Open Days or Campus Experience events to gain personalised advice from our student finance team, meet with current staff and students and get hands-on in our specialist studios and workshops.
If you can’t make it to one of our event dates or would prefer a visit without the crowds, we’re more than happy to arrange a convenient time for you to tour our facilities. To arrange a date and time that works for you, please email email@example.com or call +44 (0)1752 203434.
UCAS & Pop-up Events
Our team will be available at UCAS events across the country from February to July 2020. Meet us in a city near you, as we take our Pop-up Open Events on a tour of the UK. Stops coming up include Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham, London, Bristol and Cornwall.
