Interested in creative study but haven’t found the right course for you? There’s still time to apply to us through UCAS Extra, now open until 4 July.

What’s UCAS Extra?

UCAS Extra is the next step if you’ve already applied through the standard UCAS route but haven’t received an offer you’re happy with. It lets you apply to additional courses one at a time and is open 25 February to 4 July. For more information and advice, take a look at the UCAS Extra website.

Haven’t applied through UCAS yet? Don’t worry — you can still submit an application up until 30 June. Any applications received after this date will automatically be entered into Clearing.

How can I apply?

In order to use UCAS Extra you need to meet certain criteria. If you’ve used all five of your choices and you’re not holding any offers, or you’ve declined any that you’ve received, you’ll be able to use Extra to apply to our courses.

It’s free to use and if you’re eligible, a UCAS Extra option will automatically appear when you sign into UCAS Track.

Before making your decision, don’t forget to take a look at our course pages for more information. You can also contact our admissions team at and on +44 (0)1752 203400 if you have any questions.

What happens next?

If your application is successful we’ll invite you to an interview, where you’ll get the chance to show us your portfolio of work.

Interviews are a great opportunity for us to find out a little more about you and for you to discover everything we have to offer. Take a look through our Portfolio and Interview Guide to get an idea of what we’re looking for, and what to expect from your interview.

You can also book onto one of our Open Days — they’re a great way to explore our incredible studios, quiz lecturers and staff, or take part in live demonstrations and workshops.

Can't make an Open Day?
