How to Apply

If you would like to study at UWS London, it is easy to make an application. However, first there are a few steps that you need to go through to ensure you have everything you need to make an application.

Before you begin your application, it is important to read our step-by-step guide for a smooth and stress-free process. Once you are ready to apply, visit our website and fill in an enquiry form.

You will then be contacted by The Education Group London, a University of the West of Scotland service partner, who will take you through the application process.

1. Choose a course

Decide which course you would like to study at UWS London, making sure that it is the appropriate level of study for you.

2. Ensure you meet the entry requirements

Make sure that your academic qualifications and English language levels meet the requirements for your chosen course. Please note that you must be able to provide copies of your degree certificate(s) and academic transcript(s) in English.

3. Make an enquiry

Complete the enquiry form linked below and one of our consultants will call you for an initial discussion. Depending on where you are from, you will either need to complete the UK/EU enquiry form or International enquiry form.

4. Prepare your documents

Once you’ve had the call with us, we will help you prepare to complete your application form. You will need to ensure that you have copies of all the documents required for your application – view the document checklist.

5. Write your personal statement

You are required to submit a personal statement as part of the UWS London undergraduate and postgraduate application process. This is to demonstrate your motivation to study your chosen course. Points that you should cover in your statement are in our personal statement guide.

6. Submit your application

Once you have prepared everything listed above, we will advise you to either submit your application through our online application system or complete the application form in PDF format and email it back to them.

7. Find out if you have been successful and accept the offer

Once your application has been processed, we will contact you by email to confirm the outcome. If successful, you will receive an offer letter which will detail your next steps.

8. Pay the deposit and attend a credibility interview
If you are happy to proceed by accepting your place at UWS London, you will be required to pay a deposit of £3,500 to secure your place at the university. Any fees paid to the university will be refunded in full if the visa application is unsuccessful. You will also attend a credibility interview with us at this stage and will need to prepare your CAS documents for review.
9: Apply for a visa

Once you have accepted your unconditional offer, it is important to prepare for the visa application process. International students (non-EEA or Switzerland) coming to study on a full-time Undergraduate or Postgraduate course require a Tier 4 Student visa before travelling to the UK. You should begin the process of applying for a visa no more than 3 months before the start date of your course and no later than 6 months after your CAS was issued.

For the most up-to-date visa information, we recommend that you visit the UK Government website.
