How to apply
On this page, you'll find details about how to make your application, how we can help you along the way, and how you can still explore the city and the University without leaving your home, thanks to our Online Portsmouth Experience.
There are 3 ways you can apply:
1. UCAS Apply
You can use the UCAS Apply service as long as you haven't submitted a UCAS application yet or used all 5 choices on your UCAS application.
You need a UCAS Code for each course you apply for. You'll find these at the top of each course page. Our institution name is PORT and institution code is P80.
2. UCAS Extra
If you applied through UCAS and used all 5 of your choices, you might be able to apply to us through UCAS Extra.
This is useful if you’ve changed your mind since you submitted your UCAS application or you didn’t get the offers you wanted.
3. Apply directly
You can apply directly to us via the 'Apply' section on each course page.
We update you within 14 days when you apply directly.
Getting help with your application
We can guide you through the application process and help you find the right course.
Explore the city and the University from home
Until we welcome you to the city in person, the best way to find out more about life as a student in Portsmouth is through our Online Portsmouth Experience.
It'll show the best places to eat, drink and socialise when you finally arrive here, as well as the many cultural, artistic and sporting activities you can get involved with.
