Full-time undergraduate courses
Applications for 2013 full-time undergraduate courses (for example, BA, BSc, BEng, Foundation Degrees) are handled by UCAS. You should apply online at www.ucas.com. You can search either by name, or by Institution code G53.
If you are applying through a school or college, a member of your staff will help you to complete your application form and manage the process, including an academic reference. If you are applying independently, you will be able to get help with the application process directly from us at Glyndŵr University. Please call or visit us if you require help or advice. Alternatively, help is available from various careers organisations (for example, Connexions).
You should aim to apply to UCAS between 1 September and 15 January of the year prior to entry. This gives you plenty of time to consider your choices, and make a firm decision on what you want to study. Glyndŵr University is, however, happy to accept UCAS applications after 15th January where vacancies exist but certain courses are extremely popular and will be closed when full. After 15th January check UCAS or give us a call to check if the course you are interested in is still accepting applications.
Applicants for Fine Art and any of our Design courses are advised to apply by 24th March but applications will still be considered after this date, again if there are vacancies.
Applications for 2013 entry will cost £12 for a single choice and £23 for multiple choices.

Writing a Personal Statement
Writing a Personal Statement is probably the most daunting part of the application process for most applicants. Don't worry - give yourself as much time as possible to plan and check out the advice available.
A few points for you to consider when planning and writing your Personal Statement:
- why are you applying for your chosen course(s)?
- what experiences have you already had which will help you be successful at university?
- what skills and experience outside of school/college, perhaps from part-time work or hobbies, have you gained?
- if you are a mature applicant, explain your reasons for returning to education and what life experiences you will draw on during your studies
- what are your hobbies and can they help explain your reasons for your course choice?
- ensure that you get someone else to read your drafts and give you some suggestions and make any corrections
- ensure your spelling, grammar and punctuation are correct
UCAS provides a video clip and planning materials, such as a mindmap and a worksheet, plus other advice. Click here
We are happy to accept deferred entries on all of our courses, apart from Nursing and Social Work. Please remember that in applying for deferred entry, you are expected to satisfy the academic requirements for the course within the previous UCAS cycle. You should confirm your results to us by sending a copy of your official exam results/transcripts to the Admissions and Enquiries Team at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you receive them otherwise you risk being rejected by UCAS for not satisfying the conditions of your offer.
