Applications open for 2017 entry

Welcome

We are delighted that you have taken the first step in joining Writtle University College. We have students from over 40 different countries studying with us and pride ourselves in being a friendly and welcoming University College that understands the needs of international students coming to the UK.

Our International Admissions team is here to help you through the initial stages of applying, arrival, induction and enrolment.

To secure a place, students should aim to submit their application as early as possible. However, if places are left, we may consider applications up to the 30 June. This allows good time for completion of visa formalities.

In order for the University College to assess your suitability for your chosen course, you will need to submit a completed application form and a number of supporting documents.

Undergraduate Postgraduate Foundation
If you are applying for an undergraduate course you can apply via UCAS or alternatively you can apply direct using the application form.

What happens next?

Our admissions tutors will assess your qualifications, experience and abilities before offering you a place on their course.

When an offer has been awarded, we will send you the offer via email along with an accommodation request form if you would like to live on campus.

If your offer is conditional on obtaining a specific level of English proficiency you may wish to consider our Pre-sessional English programme (PSEL) as a way to gain skills and confidence prior to your main course. If you require a more intensive course we can also put you in touch with a local language school.

If you successfully receive an offer to study at Writtle University College you must return the acceptance forms, providing evidence that you have met any conditions (if applicable) and pay your deposit.
