Going to university is a great opportunity to explore a subject you are passionate about, discover new and exciting experiences and develop the skills and knowledge needed to enter the career you want.
All undergraduate applications, whether you are a UK or international student, must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
Applying through UCAS Extra
After the UCAS application deadline has passed in January, you might still be eligible to apply to study at City through the UCAS Extra service.
For information about eligibility, adding more choices in Extra and next steps after application visit the UCAS website or attend one of our UCAS Extra online events.
All entry requirements for our undergraduate courses can be found on the individual course pages.
Our courses have a minimum requirement of passes in two subjects at A-level or equivalent, as well as specific course requirements. We also accept a wide range of qualifications besides A-levels for entry to our courses.
For some of our courses in the School of Health & Psychological Sciences we have selection days which also form an important part of the application process.
Finally, you must be accepted by the course admissions tutor. The actual offer you receive may differ from the listed requirements as many of our courses are competitive so the minimum requirements do not guarantee admission.
City uses a contextual admissions process to take into account the varying individual circumstances of applicants.
The scheme is available to UK undergraduate applicants who have been in care or looked after for three months or more or are the first generation in their family to enter Higher Education. Those who are eligible may receive a conditional offer with reduced entry requirements.
Currently this scheme is applicable in some subjects within the School of Arts and Social Sciences and the School of Science & Technology.
Read our contextual admissions policy for further information, a list of subjects where this is applicable and eligibility criteria.
