Foundation Year and Undergraduate Study

Step 1 Apply

► Video - How to apply for an undergraduate course

UCAS Apply is an online application system and is suitable if you have regular access to the internet. You can apply for up to five courses - for example, five different courses at a single university or five courses at different institutions.

UCAS Apply is offered through schools, colleges or British Council Offices if they are a registered UCAS centre. You can also make an independent application.

Manchester Metropolitan University’s institution code is ‘M40’. You should ensure that this code is entered clearly on your application form, together with the code for the course you wish to apply for. View Foundation Year course codes or find an undergraduate course code using our online prospectus.

The deadline for UCAS applications is 18:00 (UK time) on 30 June. Applications received after this date will automatically be entered into UCAS Clearing. Remember that some popular courses may not be able to guarantee consideration after 15 January, so it is best to apply as early as you can.

Please note – if you wish to study ‘Edexcel Level 3 BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art and Design’ you will need to apply directly through the University.
