How to apply for an undergraduate course at ABI College
Undergraduate courses are defined as qualifications awarded at level 4, 5 & 6. For comparison level 4 is one step up from a standard A level qualification. At ABI College we offer programmes leading to HND/HNC qualifications (levels 4 & 5) awarded by Pearson and a Foundation Degree (level 5), BA(Hons) level 6 and BA(Hons) Top-Ups (Level 6) awarded by Plymouth Marjon University.
There are different application procedures for these programmes according to your age and the course you wish to apply for.
If you are a mature student, which is defined as anyone over the age of 21 and who has not attended a college or university before, you can apply directly to us. Please see instructions under the admissions section of the ABI College website. This also applies to applicants wishing to study for an HND/HNC qualification.
If you’re a UK or EU student of under 21 year of age you will need to apply for our full-time undergraduate programmes (Foundation Degree, BA (Hons) or BA top-up) through University & College admissions Systems (UCAS). Details are available on the UCAS website. However if you wish to apply to us through the UCAS route please contact our admissions team who will give you guidance as to how to complete your form online. You will find that you will be able to nominate other Colleges if you so wish. The key sections of the application form include:
Your personal details
Any support needs/requirements you may have
Details of your completed qualifications and those results which are pending.
Any paid or voluntary employment you may have
Personal statement which is very important to support your application
Payment – £13 for one choice of college, £24 for more than one choice
The application deadline for most degrees is 15th January.
It is important that you research thoroughly the courses for which you apply including those at ABI College to make sure that you enrol on the programme which will be suitable for you and will meet your requirement for a qualification to support your future career.
At ABI College we offer open days [open day link] for perspective students to attend and meet relevant subject tutors but anyone wishing to apply is very welcome to contact us for an informal meeting where we will provide full information about the programmes we have to offer.
Please note that in all cases the final decision on whether to admit students to the Foundation Degree and BA(Hons) programmes will be made by Plymouth Marjon University. Our general policies regarding admissions will also apply
Please note that if you are an international student we are not currently accepting applications due to changes in UK policy on students visa regulations.
