How to apply

Wrexham Glyndwr University awarded silver in Teaching Excellence Framework

Applying through UCAS

For the majority of undergraduate courses, you'll need to apply through UCAS.  If you are interested in studying a part-time or postgraduate course at Wrexham Glyndwr, then please see our alternative application routes.

Once you’ve decided on which courses you wish to apply for then you’ll need to register at UCAS.com to start your application.

If you are currently at school or college, you may be given a ‘buzzword’ to use when you register – this will help distinguish where you are applying from. Those who wish to apply independently will not need a buzzword, but will still use the UCAS system to apply.

Completing your application

The online application system  opens in September for entry to the University in the following year.  You do not have to complete your application all in one go – the system will allow you to complete it in stages.

Your application will need to include the following information:

Your personal details – remember your name needs to be stated as shown on your official documents, such as your birth certificate or passport.

Your qualifications – be sure to enter all of your qualifications and any pending qualifications that you are awaiting results for. If you encounter any problems, get in touch with UCAS or our admissions team.

A personal statement – this is one of the most important parts of your application as a well-written and thoughtful personal statement can really make you stand out from the crowd. A poor one could undermine an otherwise good application.

There is no definitive way of writing a personal statement which will guarantee acceptance onto your chosen course, however there are guidelines that will help you to focus on what you should and shouldn’t include. Why not read our Top 10 Tips on Writing your Personal Statement before you get started?

A reference – ideally this should be from a teacher or a professional who knows you well and can verify your suitability for higher education.

You will be required to disclose if you have a ‘relevant’ criminal conviction – some specific courses may require you to undergo a DBS check – where this is the case you must select “Yes” if you have ever had a conviction, even if this is spent.

Find out more about obtaining a DBS check for study.


UCAS Codes

When applying through UCAS you will be asked to enter the code of the University you wish to study at.  The code for Wrexham Glyndŵr is G53.

UCAS codes for your chosen degree can be found on the individual course pages under 'Entry requirements and applying.'

Dates and deadlines

For the majority of courses at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, you should submit your application by the equal consideration deadline of 15th January 2018.  Following this date the University can close any courses that are already full.

For Art & Design courses at Wrexham Glyndŵr, a later deadline of 24th March 2018 applies.

If the deadline has passed, the good news is your chosen course may still be open.

Get in touch with our admissions team for more information and to find out what courses are currently available.

Check out the list of key dates and deadlines throughout the year.

UCAS Extra

UCAS Extra is for applicants who are already in the UCAS system and who have not received any offer from their original choices, or have declined any offers they have had.  UCAS Extra is available online from February 25 to July 4. 

If we have vacancies on your chosen course, then we will consider your application and hopefully make you an offer so that you can add us as your Extra choice. We will advise on your individual circumstances when you contact us, but in order for us to consider a decision as soon as possible, we ask that within your UCAS Track you go to the view your application section, copy it and send us a copy of your application via email.

For more information on UCAS Extra visit the UCAS website.



If you apply through UCAS after 30th June 2018, your application will not be sent to us. Instead you will receive details about Clearing.

Clearing is a process that is available between July and September for those who are applying late, have already applied and haven’t received a place, or have declined all of their offers.

If you wish to secure a place at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, then we strongly advise that from the beginning of July to mid-September you call our dedicated Clearing Hotline on 01978 293439 – our friendly team will be able to help you with course vacancies and put you in touch with the relevant admissions staff.
