Apply direct to AUB for undergraduate courses

If you're an EU or Overseas student and you're applying for a full-time undergraduate course, you can apply to us directly, free of charge.

If you're only applying to AUB, we'd recommend that you apply directly to us. Please note we can only consider direct online applications if you haven't applied and won't apply through UCAS for this year of entry. If you're applying to more than one university in the UK, you should apply through UCAS.

How to Make a Direct Application

Step 1: Start an Application

To start an application, click on the course you'd like to apply for below:

We’ll use your completed online application to make decisions about your application. Make sure you include all of the qualifications that you have and are currently taking. You can also tell us about any work experience that you've done.

In your personal statement, we’d like to know more about why you're interested in the course, the key influences on your work and what you hope to do after your studies. There’s more advice in our personal statement guide here.

If you're unsure how to apply directly. Please contact us for more information at admissions@aub.ac.uk.

Please be aware that places may be limited on some of our courses so we advise you to get started on your application and submit your application as soon as you can. Following the recent government announcement, the UCAS deadline has been extended from the 15 January 2021 to 18.00 on 29 January 2021.

You can also apply for entry to year 2 or 3 of a degree course. As a general rule, you’ll need to meet our entry requirements and the content of the degree you’re currently studying needs to be very similar to the course you're transferring to. We’ll also need you to provide an academic transcript from your current University. Due to the nature of the course, BA (Hons) Acting can only accept applications for first year.

Step 2: Track your Application

Once we've received your application, we’ll send you an email with your login details for our online portal, MyApplication.

You can use this to monitor the progress of your application to AUB. We might contact you for more information so make sure that you check your emails. You will also need to log into MyApplication to send us information and submit your portfolio. There is an inbox for messages we send to you and also links to information you will need before you join AUB.

Please contact admissions@aub.ac.uk if you have any questions about your application.

Step 3: Interviews, Portfolios and Applicant Days

Due to Covid-19 and the need for social distance, we will not be able to offer on-campus interviews to applicants this cycle. For courses that require a portfolio review or an audition Admissions will be in touch with you and request a digital portfolio or audition.

We will hold Offer Holder days in Spring and invite applicants to visit the campus and meet the course team, or if you are unable to visit AUB you will be able to attend a virtual Offer Holder Day.

This is for all Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses. However, these undergraduate courses may not need a portfolio of work. We'll request a portfolio or a sample of your work if you're not studying relevant qualifications or if you've been out of education for a while.

Step 4: Accepting your offer

Once we've made a decision on your application we’ll update you via MyApplication. We should be able to tell you via email about our decision. We’ll let you know if there's any delay.

Conditional offer

Unconditional offer
