How to apply

There are two ways to apply to Nottingham College - depending on which type of course you wish to study:

1. Apply through the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS) – for full-time higher education courses

2. Apply directly to Nottingham College – for part-time higher education courses or part-time professional courses

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please don’t hesitate to contact our HE team directly.

Applying through UCAS

Applications for full-time higher education courses should be made through UCAS. You can apply online at www.ucas.com – click on ‘Apply’ to register and begin the application process.

UCAS charges a fee for your application. You’ll need a UCAS code for each course you apply for - this can be found within the details for each course.

UCAS has a number of advisory deadlines throughout the year, which we recommend you stick to in order to receive equal consideration. However, we do welcome applications throughout the year. The normal closing date for UCAS to receive applications is 15 January, but they will continue to take applications until 30 June each year.

You can contact UCAS on the following telephone numbers:

  • UCAS Customer Service Unit: 0871 468 0 468
  • From outside the UK: +44 871 468 0 468
  • Text Relay Service (for UK callers with hearing difficulties): 18001 0871 468 0 468

Applying directly to Nottingham College - applications for part-time higher education

Applications for part-time higher education and part-time professional courses should be made directly to Nottingham College using the application form.

You can also request an application form by contacting us or by calling 0115 9 100 100, or the HE team on 0115 838 0610.
