The deadline for UCAS applications for degree courses starting in September 2018 is fast approaching, so if your plan is to study at an ACM college next year, you’ll need to get your application in before 6pm on Monday 15th January.

Why is it important to meet this deadline?
This deadline is important because all submissions before this time are given ‘equal consideration’, meaning your application will receive exactly the same treatment as all the others and you’ll be guaranteed a priority invitation to your interview or audition.

What happens if I miss this deadline?
Applications made after this date will be considered only after those submitted before the deadline have been dealt with, and unfortunately we won’t be able to definitely confirm an interview or audition slot.

How to apply
To apply to an ACM college, simply submit your application via UCAS, making sure you use the correct UCAS Code for the college and course you’ve selected. This information can be found in the ‘Courses’ section of the ACM website or in the ACM Prospectus.

What happens next?
After we’ve received your application, depending on which course you’ve applied for, you’ll be invited to attend either an interview or an audition, and if you meet your chosen course’s entry criteria, you’ll be offered a place.

Attend an Open Day
The best way to learn first-hand about ACM is to attend an Open Day at your preferred ACM college. You’ll get to talk to ACM tutors and current students, see our industry-standard facilities up close and have a tour of the campus. To book your place, visit our Open Day page today.
