How to apply

Once you’ve chosen a course, the next step is to make an application through UCAS, the central processing body for higher education courses.

If you’re based in the UK, we strongly encourage you to come to one of our Open Days before applying. This will allow you to get a feel for the University and its facilities, and help you to make that all-important decision.

Applying for a full-time course

You can make your application online at the UCAS website, www.ucas.com, where you’ll also find key dates and deadlines.

You will be asked for an institution code name and number. Our code name is SOTON. Our number is S27.

The application fee is £23 if you are applying to more than one university or college, or for more than one programme; £12 if you are just applying for a single programme at one institution.

What happens next?

UCAS will send you an acknowledgement and forward your application to us. You will also receive an acknowledgement email from us to let you know that your application has been received and is being processed. The Admissions Tutor and others in the Academic Unit will consider your application carefully. You will hear back from us in two to six weeks depending on your programme of study.

Some programmes may require you to attend a selection or interview session before making you an offer. You will be provided with details following your application.

What happens if I want to take a gap year?

Applications for deferred entry will be considered in the normal way, but for entry in 2015 the conditions of any offer must be met in the summer of 2014. Please note, Winchester School of Art does not accept deferred applications. However, in exceptional circumstances WSA can defer entry to the following year once you have been offered a place and accepted it.
