The number of courses you can apply for at all UK universities is a maximum of five courses.
You do have to pay to apply for undergraduate programmes (the money goes to UCAS and not the University). The cost of making an application is £12 for 2016 entry if you only apply to one course at a single university or college, or £23 for 2016 entry for two to five course applications
Our Admissions Team will receive an electronic copy of your application and will assess your academic record, personal statement and other achievements.
