How to Apply

Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS)

Applications for all of our undergraduate programmes must be made through UCAS. The UCAS scheme covers all full-time programmes leading to a first degree or diploma at university or college in the UK. Please note that for the Business and Education Management Foundation Degree a UCAS application is not required. All other applications can be made online using UCAS Apply.

University and Programme Codes

The UCAS code for Aston University is ASTON A80. This should be entered clearly on your application form. The UCAS codes for each of the Aston Business School degree programmes can be found on the degree list webpage. It is essential that you enter the correct code(s) for the programmes and institutions you wish to apply for to avoid delay to your application. Please use the UCAS Directory/Website to check that you have entered the correct information on your UCAS form

Choice of University/College

You may apply to five courses on the UCAS form, but are not obliged to use all five choices if you do not need to. You should list your choices in the order in which they appear in the UCAS Directory.

When to Apply

If you wish to begin a degree programme in autumn 2016, you should apply from 1 September 2015. Please remember that the last date for the receipt of applications, to qualify for full and equal treatment, is 15 January 2016. For international students, the date for full and equal treatment is 30th June 2016.  It is however, best to apply as early as possible, especially for high demand programmes.

If you have applied by 15 January 2016 and have provided all the required information, we will aim to give you a decision through UCAS by 31 March 2016.

Late Applicants 

Although you should make every effort to let us have your application by the dates specified, we are still able to consider applications throughout the year.
