Are you an ex-student applying to university through UCAS?

The advised deadline for you to complete your form and submit it to the college is 1st November. If we receive your application by 1st November, we guarantee that it will be sent on to UCAS in time for the UCAS deadline of 15th January.

Contact your tutor and faculty administrator by email as early as possible to let them know that you are applying through the college and will need a reference.

Please note that you should register on www.ucas.com as a ‘part of a school or college’ to receive a reference from the college.  
Do not register as an  ‘independent candidate’. (If you do this in error, please use the ‘Options’ button the your UCAS form to ask to be linked to the college.)

Please contact the Careers Adviser at the college to ask for the current ‘buzzword’ which will link your application to the college and enable us to add your reference before submitting the application to UCAS.
