UCAS Application Guide

Applying after the UCAS January deadline

Don’t worry if you haven’t yet submitted your UCAS application, there’s still plenty of time to join us this year.

Every year many students choose to apply after the UCAS equal consideration deadline (this year’s deadline was Wednesday, 25th January). In fact, anybody can apply after the UCAS deadline, including international students. Choosing to apply to higher education is a big decision, and we understand that there are many more factors to consider this year.

On this page, you’ll find details about how the UCAS application process works, what to include in your application and what happens after you’ve applied.

How does the UCAS application work?

At this stage, when you apply to UCAS you’ll be asked to submit up to five options for the courses that you’d like to study, at the education institutes you’d like to join. You’ll find Screen and Film School’s course under BIMM Institute. To make an application through UCAS, you’ll need to go to www.ucas.com and register before you can submit any choices.

What to include in your UCAS application

Your application will need to include the following:

  • A list of all your academic achievements, including any pending qualifications.
  • A Personal Statement (under a maximum of 4,000 characters).
  • A reference from either a teacher, tutor or employer.

What happens after I’ve applied?

Once your UCAS application has been received, we’ll invite you to attend an Applicant Day. If you aren’t able to attend in person then there are other options available such as digital portfolio submissions.

What happens next?

If you meet the relevant entry requirements and attend an Applicant Day, you’ll either be provided with a ‘conditional offer’ (pending until we receive your exam results and certificates) or an ‘unconditional offer’ (you’ve met the entry criteria for the course and don’t need to supply any additional information). You can view your offers via your UCAS Hub.
