+How do I apply for a college place?

Every student becomes a member of one of our colleges. Whether applying for an undergraduate or postgraduate programme, the decision to admit you to the University will be made by the academic department. Once a decision has been made your application will be forwarded to the college of your choice (if your first choice college cannot make an offer your application will be passed to an alternative college), or in the case of an open application we will allocate a college for you.

If you are applying through UCAS for an undergraduate course and wish to apply for a particular college, you will be required to enter a campus code on your application. You can find a full list of our campus codes here:
