Application process FAQs

 

You may be able to apply now through Clearing.

If you are applying to us for a full-time degree or extended degree programme, you will need to apply online through UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service).

This is the official applications service for the UK, and they will send your application details to each of the universities you have listed on your application.

When you register with UCAS, you will also receive a username and password so that you can access your application at a later date.

It is very important that you enter the correct institution code (for Roehampton this is R48) and course code for each choice. These can be found on the relevant course pages on our website.

Contact us directly if you have any questions.

The Roehampton UCAS institution code is R48.

Your school, college or centre will give you a buzzword so you can link your application to them. You add this word to your application when you register to make an undergraduate application.

If you are applying independently, without a school or college, you do not need a buzzword.

If you are no longer at school or college you will need to apply to university as an independent applicant. When you register with UCAS they will give you a username and password so that you can complete your application whenever you like.

You will need to complete the online application, including your personal statement and will also need to supply a reference from someone who knows you well, and is able to write about why you are suitable for higher education.

Conditional Offers

This offer requires you to meet particular academic or other conditions before you can join the course of study you have applied for. This could be a combination of grade, scores or subjects and will be outlined in the offer communication that you receive.

Unconditional offers

An unconditional offer has no conditions attached. Unconditional offers are made with the expectation that you continue to work hard in your current course(s) of study. It is in your best interests to ensure you have good grades so that you are well equipped for university study and attractive to employers.

If you meet the requirements of your firm choice you will be expected to take that place, so you need to be sure that the course you have accepted firmly is the one you want to do.

If you miss the grades for your firm choice and meet the requirements for your insurance choice you will be expected to take up that place
