How to choose a course

After getting started with what to study, entry requirements and application deadlines, you might still find a large number of courses to choose from around the country. Browsing through the search tool might give you inspiration, or you could read our tips on how to choose between similar courses and providers, or visit a uni to see what it's like. Take a look at our subject guides to give you an idea of the types of courses you could study at university.


Search for undergraduate courses

Search for undergraduate courses from the search bar at the top of this page.

  1. If it is not already selected, select ‘Courses’ from the first drop-down menu.
  2. Select the scheme (Undergraduate).
  3. Select ‘2017 entry’ or ‘2018 entry’.
  4. Enter the subject you’re interested in.
  5. Click the search icon.

Choosing these details means you’ll only see relevant courses for the scheme, year, and subject you’re interested in.

You can search for foundation degrees which you can apply for through a UCAS undergraduate application.

This search tool also includes performing arts courses at conservatoires – these are more performance-based than their academic equivalents, and they’re applied to through UCAS Conservatoires rather than UCAS Undergraduate. 

  • International and EU students
    There’s an enormous range of subjects and courses in the UK, so there will be something to suit your career goals and interests.
    1. Search for courses using the links above and see what you like best.
    2. Each university and college has different specialities, so see which is most suitable for you.
    3. Check that employers or professional organisations in your country will accept the qualification you choose.
    4. Make sure the course covers the subject you want to study to help you in your chosen career.
  • Flexible and part-time students

    You can search for these courses in our search tool, by selecting the 'Flexible/part-time study' filter. You’ll be able to search for block-release, distance learning or a variety of part-time options. Unlike full-time applications, you don’t need to find a course as far in advance, so the application process is shorter.

Teaching Excellence Framework

The Government has introduced the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) to give information about universities and colleges, intended to help you decide where to study. Universities and colleges achieving TEF awards can increase their fees in line with inflation, for full-time courses starting from September 2017. It is up to each university or college to decide whether or not to change their fees.

For 2017, this means maximum fees will be £9,250 a year. The Welsh Government has maintained the fee cap of £9,000 for learners studying in Wales.


Know your rights!

Choosing the right course and university or college is a very important decision – you’ll be investing a lot of time, money, and effort, and it can be difficult to change if you’re not satisfied. Knowing your rights under consumer law will help make sure you get all the information you need and are treated fairly during your studies.
