Bath Spa University Introduction 20 / 21 We will consider each application on its individual merits. Full-time studentsYou make your application through the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). For all full-time higher education courses at universities and colleges in the UK, students must apply online at www.ucas.com. There are full instructions at www.ucas.com to make it as easy as possible for you to fill in your online application, plus help text where appropriate. UCAS also has a comprehensive guide called Applying Online, which can be downloaded from www.ucas.com. There are three types of applicant:1. Students at a school or college registered with UCAS All UK schools and colleges (and a small number of establishments overseas) are registered with UCAS to manage their students' applications. Advice is available from your teacher or a careers adviser at your school or college. You fill in an online application and submit it to a member of staff. After checking your details, and having added the academic reference, your school or college submits the completed application online to UCAS. You pay online using a credit card or debit card. You may also be able to pay through your school or college. 2. Independent applicants in the UK Other UK applicants, who are not at school or college, apply online independently. It is likely that you are a mature applicant, who, unlike school and college students, cannot readily seek advice from your teacher, but can instead consult with various careers organisations (such as Connexions). You are responsible for paying the correct application fee, for obtaining and attaching the academic reference and for submitting the completed application online to UCAS. 3. International applicants outside the UK (EU and worldwide) International students are asked to apply through UCAS. We suggest you start any additional application procedures in your home country as soon as possible. Except for those whose school or college is registered with UCAS, individuals from the EU (excluding the UK) and worldwide, apply online independently. Advice is available from British Council offices and other centres overseas, such as your school or college. You are responsible for paying the correct application fee, for obtaining and attaching the academic reference and for submitting the completed application online to UCAS. We advise you to apply early to UCAS as we will want to see copies of certificates and diplomas well in advance. If you cannot attend for interview, we would ask you to send us examples of your work, usually by the end of March of your proposed year of entry. Please ensure that your application is fully completed, with your actual qualifications clearly listed. Foundation degrees Applications to full-time Foundation Degrees are made through UCAS in the same way as honours degree programmes. Art and Design courses Applications to art and design courses are made in the same way as applications to other undergraduate courses with an application deadline date of January 15, 2012. Part-time applicants Applications for part-time study are made direct to Bath Spa University. This is the case for all types of course - degree or foundation degree. For further information and an application form please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Completing your applicationBath Spa University's institution code is BASPA B20. You will find full information on course codes on page 63. You will also find full information on codes and how to complete the application form on the UCAS website (www.ucas.com) and in the Directory, along with details of the registration fee which must accompany your UCAS application form. You may apply to up to five institutions / courses (although you are not obliged to use all five choices). The choices are listed in the order in which they appear in the Directory, rather than in order of preference, so all applications will be treated equally and anonymity between universities applies. When to apply For all courses your completed form should reach UCAS between 1 September and 15 January - between nine and twelve months prior to entry. You can still apply through UCAS after that date, but you will only be considered for courses that still have vacancies.

At the close of the workshop you will show us a prepared acting piece. Other candidates: If you are applying for courses other than the above you will probably not be asked to attend an interview unless your application contains particular aspects that we need to explore further. If you are offered a place you will be invited to attend an organised Campus Visit Day. These are specifically for candidates who are holding offers from us (parents and supporters are very welcome to attend too), and enable you to make an informed decision about whether or not to accept the offer.Foundation degrees at partner colleges/institutions: Candidates for Popular Music; Music Production; Musical Theatre will be auditioned at the relevant college.

Taking a Gap Year We are happy to consider applications from students who plan to take a year out. If the year is used constructively, it can be a very positive experience. If you want to apply for deferred entry, you should apply in the normal way, but indicate that you are applying for 2013, not 2012. If you decide to take a year off after you have submitted your application, just contact us in good time to let us know your change of plans. Offer letters Our decision on your application will be communicated to you via UCAS only as it is not our policy to send offer letters. Please therefore make sure that you check UCAS Track on a regular basis. Further information At any stage of your application/ enrolment, we may ask you for further information. Please note that failure to provide it can result in our refusal to consider your application, the loss of home fee status and a demand for payment of any outstanding fees.01020301 Italian Garden02 University Theatre03 Main House
