Undergraduate How to apply
How to apply
There are two ways to apply to the University of Strathclyde for undergraduate study:
- Direct Applications for international students
- UCAS (Universities & Colleges Admissions Service) for UK students
Both apply options can be found by selecting the Apply tab on the course pages. Please note, Direct Applications may not be available for every course.
Remember to add your code
The UCAS code for the University of Strathclyde is S78.
Make sure you add in the correct code for the institution you’re applying to.
You might be asked to attend an interview
Most of our courses make offers based on your UCAS application. However some might ask you to attend an interview or for a portfolio of work. If this is the case, it will be stated in the prospectus entry requirements.
If you apply for a course where an interview is required, the department will write to you with details of the interview process and the place, date and time of your appointment. If you’re not based in the UK the interview will be conducted by telephone if possible.
It's possible to apply directly to Year 2
Depending in your qualifications, you might be able to apply directly to Year 2 - or even Year 3 - of a course. Speak to the named contact for your course if you want to discuss this.
Remember the deadline
25 January 2023 at 6pm (UK time) is the application deadline for most courses. Please check the details for your particular course. View a full list of UCAS key dates.
Applications made to UCAS after this date but before 30 June 2023 will still be considered if there are places available. Applications received after this date will automatically be entered into Clearing.
