LATEST NEWS: University rises 24 places in the Guardian University Guide 2019

Missed the UCAS deadline? No problem – if you want to start university this September, there's still time to apply for a place at Wrexham Glyndwr University.

If you’re not sure of what you’d like to study, check out our undergraduate course list, or the new courses we have available for entry in September.

What happens next depends on your current situation. We know applying can get a bit complicated depending on whether or not you've already applied via UCAS. Our step-by-step guide takes you through the options.

Not yet registered with UCAS?

If you only want to apply to us, then you can now apply using the direct application form available here. You’ll need to enter your personal details as well as the qualifications you currently hold and the qualifications (if any) that you’re currently taking. We’ll also need you to provide the name and contact details of someone willing to provide a reference for you, and a personal statement telling us a bit about you, why you want to do the course you’re applying for and why you’d be a good fit for it.  If you’re having trouble providing a reference or difficulties writing your personal statement then contact us on for some advice.

Registered with UCAS, and not used all of your choices?

If you’ve already got a UCAS application then you should apply to us using this application. If you paid for more than one choice and haven’t used all five, then at this point you’ll have one or more choices still available to you as long as you haven’t accepted any of your offers yet.  You have until June 30 to make the rest of your choices, but bear in mind that we can close courses with a January 15 deadline at any time after this point.  If your course is currently open, add us as a choice as soon as possible so that you don’t miss out.

Registered with UCAS and used all of your choices?

If you’ve used all of your choices and don’t hold any offers, then you’re going to be in one of two situations; you’re still waiting for some or all of your universities to make their decision, or you’ve unfortunately been unsuccessful so far.

If you’ve been unsuccessful in your choices, then UCAS Extra is the route for you.  UCAS Extra is a handy little feature that gives you another go at the application process by allowing you to add another university and course to your UCAS Track.  Between Feburary 25 and July 4 you’ll be able to access the extra choice via your Track and your application will be sent through to us by UCAS.

If you haven’t got all of your offers back yet but have changed your mind about where or what you want to study then you’ll need to withdraw from your outstanding choices before you can use UCAS Extra.


Applying to us through UCAS Extra

One thing to remember when using the UCAS Extra feature, is that your application will be just the same as your initial application.  So, if you applied to study Maths initially but now want to do Computing your personal statement will naturally be orientated towards Maths rather than Computing.

If this is the case for you then we’re happy to consider an alternative personal statement as part of your UCAS Extra application.  If you’d like us to do this, send us your revised statement as a Word document to, including your UCAS Personal ID and the course you’re applying to with us.

Even if you’re not changing course, then you can still contact us before you add your UCAS Extra choice to see if we’ll consider you.  Again, just email (ideally including a copy of your UCAS application as an attachment) and we’ll be happy to advise if we’d make you an offer based on the information you’ve given us.
