UCAS Application Guide

FOR 2019/20 courses

The UCAS deadline for Higher Education applications is fast approaching, so if you’d like to apply to a BIMM degree course starting in October, you’ll need to start thinking about submitting your UCAS application soon.

We don’t want you to miss out – applications that are submitted after January 15th* will only be considered after all the on-time applications have been processed, so it’s best to get yours in on time.

Missed the UCAS deadline?

Don’t worry as there’s still time to join us in 2019! Apply to BIMM before Thursday 31st January, and we will still consider you as an ‘on time’ applicant.


At this stage, when you apply to UCAS you’ll be asked to submit up to five options for the courses that you’d like to study, at the education institutes you’d like to join. You’ll find all our BIMM courses listed on the UCAS website along with our course and campus codes. To make an application through UCAS, you’ll need to go to www.ucas.com and register before you can submit any choices.


Your application will need to include the following:

  • A list of all your academic achievements, including any pending qualifications.
  • A Personal Statement (under a maximum of 4,000 characters).
  • A reference from either a teacher, tutor or employer.

For further information about UCAS submissions, please see BIMM’s handy applicant guides:









Once your UCAS application has been received, we’ll invite you in for an assessment/interview. If you aren’t able to attend in person then there are other options available such as a Skype interview or a demo submission. If you clearly meet the entry criteria for the course you’ve selected, we’ll offer you a place.

International applicants

Once you’ve applied via UCAS, you’ll be invited to attend an assessment. If you aren’t able to attend in person then there are other options available such as a Skype interview or a demo submission.


If your assessment is successful, you’ll either be provided with a ‘conditional offer’ (pending until we receive your exam results and certificates) or an ‘unconditional offer’ (you’ve met the entry criteria for the course and don’t need to supply any additional information). Offers will be announced via UCAS’s ‘Track’ facility.


If you have any questions regarding the UCAS application process, please complete our online application form to receive a call from a member of the admissions team. We will then discuss your entire application from getting you booked on to an open day, submitting your UCAS application, booking your assessment or even just to make sure you are all set with accommodation, finance and qualification requirements.
