The University of Southampton

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.

Our Undergraduate Applications page has a full explanation of the application process.

We strongly encourage you to come to one of our Open Days to get a feel for the University and its facilities.

Faculty application requirements

Each programme has their own entry requirements. Find out what we require from applicants below.

Follow the links on the right for information on accommodation, entry requirements, facilities, study support and money matters.

Who can I contact about an individual course?

If you need to find out more about entry requirements or details of an individual course in engineering, please contact us. The admissions team will be able to answer most of your questions, or otherwise can put you in touch with a member of teaching staff.

What is your policy for mature students?

We are very pleased to consider applicants with non-traditional backgrounds who do not fulfil our normal entry requirements. We treat each application individually and suggest you talk with the admission team in the early stages of your decision to come to Southampton. We do expect evidence of your commitment in the form of recent relevant study: for example, the University's relevant foundation year course, a minimum of two A2 level science courses, appropriate Open University courses or an appropriate Access course.

Visiting us

Once we have made you an offer, you will receive an invitation to visit us. Visits involve a tour of the campus by student guides, talks about the degree courses and the University, and a chance to meet our academic staff. This should help you make that important final decision about which university you wish to join for the next three or more years.
