International and EU students
Benefits of studying in the UK
Undergraduate courses here can offer a fantastic mix of valuable skills, diverse culture, innovative industries and academic excellence.
How to apply
Firstly, the way that UK higher education works means there are different rules for UK, EU and international students. We’ll highlight the similarities and differences throughout ucas.com, but it might be worth checking our guide to UK higher education terms too.
- Then get started on what to study, when to apply and how to get a place and a visa.
- Then find a course, and look out for our advice on how to choose a suitable course and university.
- Then start applying, submitting your application before 15 January (18:00 UK time) if possible, (or 15 October 18:00 UK time the year before for Oxford, Cambridge or most medicine, veterinary and dentistry courses).
- Then look at finance and support, if you’ll need to arrange visas and to pay course fees or adjust to life in the UK.
