UWIC admissions and fees



Easy Application and Admissions Process


To apply for a University of Worcester degree via one of our pathway courses just fill in the application form on any of our courses pages and send it back to admissions@uwic.worc.ac.uk.    You can also find the download the UWIC application form. We will then raise a conditional offer and outline what further information we require to confirm your place.  

As soon as we have everything outstanding, we will be able raise your unconditional offer. Once accepted and your course tuition fees deposit is paid, this will allow the University to progress to assigning you a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies). This CAS will enable you to apply for your Student Visa which will cover the whole of your course, up until graduation. 

Multiple Course Intakes

UWIC has three intakes per year for most courses, starting in October, January and May. This gives you the flexibility to start your course when the time is best for you. January enrolments also allow you to progress onto your degree course in the autumn of that same year, reducing the time of your full degree by three months.  

The University of Worcester also has January enrolments for a number of its business degree courses, providing even more options for the length of your study.
