Applying to UK

There is a huge amount of choice in UK higher education and world class universities and it is the most popular destination for students from our school.

Applications are made through UCAS. Each student can apply to a maximum of 5 courses. Early applicants (15th October) all other applicants (15th January).

Universities will offer successful applicants conditional offers based on IB points scores. You then select a Firm Choice and an Insurance Choice from the offers you have received. If you then achieve the grades in your IB Diploma you will have your place at university confirmed. 

Many UK universities have links with other European universities through the Erasmus programme and it is possible for students studying at UK universities to study at a university in a different European country for part of their course. 


Universities in England 

Tuition fees are now up to £9.000 per year. UK and other EU students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan. Tuition fees are paid in instalments by the student once they have graduated.

Each university also offers different financial support, fee waivers, scholarships and bursaries so you need to check the university's website to find out if you are eligible. 

If you are an EU national you need to complete an EU12N form to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan. This can be done after you have confirmed your choices with UCAS. If your final choice changes after your IB results come out you should then complete an EUC01 form.

International students (non EU) are not entitled to Tuition Fee Loans. But you should research if the university you are applying to offers financial support for international students. 


Universities in Scotland

Currently Scottish universities do charge tuition fees, but these fees are paid by the Students Award Agency for Scotland for EU students (not English, Welsh, Northern Irish students).  This make Scotland an excellent choice for EU students!

English, Welsh and Northern Irish students can apply for tuition fee loan from SAAS.

You should apply online after you have confirmed your choices with UCAS.

Universities in Wales

The Welsh government give 'fee grants' of around £5.000 for EU students (not English) for students who go to university in Wales, a tuition fee loan is given for the remainder of the fees which should be repaid after graduation.
