University of Aberdeen Scholarships 2022 Application Process
Applications for full-time undergraduate degree programmes at Aberdeen – as to other UK universities – are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). The exceptions are for part-time degrees, and non-graduating or visiting students, who apply direct to the University.
You apply online to UCAS and schools and colleges can provide advice and guidance. If you wish to contact UCAS from outside the UK, you can write to them at the address provided, or you can visit their website. UCAS expects to receive most applications electronically through Apply. This electronic system contains the most up-to-date course information, is quicker to use, and, as you are using the Internet, you can complete your application anytime.
Your completed application should be submitted (preferably via Apply) to UCAS with the applicant’s fee. If you wish to apply for only one course at one institution, a reduced price applies. For all applicants, there are instructions on the UCAS website to make it as easy as possible for you to fill in your online application, plus help text where appropriate.
You may apply to up to five institutions on the full-price UCAS application. You should list your choices in the order in which they appear in the Handbook. Applicants for Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science should list no more than four such courses in their five choices.
Although admission at Aberdeen is to a degree and not to a particular Department or subject, you should still enter your preferred degree programme title and UCAS code in your UCAS application. However, in most cases it is easy to change your degree preference after you have begun your degree.
Please note, UCAS has a variety of application deadlines in place that vary between courses and providers. You can find more information on the UCAS website, or by visiting our ‘How to apply’ page.
Your school or college will provide you with full assistance on how to use Apply. For information, the contact details for UCAS are:
