Apply for an undergraduate course at NUA
Looking to apply for an undergraduate course at NUA?
Applications for all our undergraduate courses, BA or BSc courses should be made via UCAS. We welcome applications throughout the year but please be aware that places may be limited after the main UCAS deadline on 15 January. You’re welcome to contact us after the deadline to find out more.
For most courses in 2021, we will ask applicants to submit a digital portfolio and answer four questions which will help us get to know you.
You will receive more information about how to submit your digital portfolio and the four questions once we have received your application.
Applying for Years Two or Three
If you wish to join a course at Year Two or Three you’ll need to demonstrate that you have achieved a level equivalent to students who have been studying with NUA from Year One.
Please see the NUA Accreditation of Prior Learning Policy and Procedures document for more information. We advise you to contact our Admissions team at email@example.com prior to submitting your application.

Applicants with Disabilities or Specific Learning Difficulties
NUA welcomes applications from all groups in the community including those with disabilities or specific learning difficulties. The University encourages applicants to disclose information about a disability as early and as fully as possible as this allows us to put appropriate support in place. Failure to disclose a disability, or to give full information, may lead to a delay in the provision of that support.
NUA is housed in a range of buildings that date from the medieval period onwards. While students with a variety of disabilities and specific learning difficulties have successfully studied at the University, the inaccessibility of some of our buildings may cause difficulties for wheelchair users, or those with mobility difficulties.
Wherever possible, we’ll arrange for you to visit the University to assess the learning environment first hand. The University is fully committed to continuing its policy of improving and extending access where practicable and to increasing awareness of the requirements of people with disabilities and special needs.
