International students

International applicants (outside the European Union) can complete our online application form. If you receive an offer of a place on a full-time undergraduate course you must register an application with UCAS.

When to apply

You can start applying for courses in September the year before you want to start. The main closing date is 15 January. You are encouraged to apply by then although late applications are accepted through UCAS until 30 June.

Applying to art and design courses

The main closing date for the receipt of UCAS applications for some art and design courses is 24 March. Relevant deadlines are indicated against each course on UCAS.

Applying direct to the University

If the course you are interested in is not covered by UCAS, or is a part-time undergraduate course, apply directly using the 'apply online' button on the course.

Offers, interviews and open days

Official confirmation of offers for courses comes through UCAS, or from us for courses not in UCAS. You may be invited to an interview or applicant open day before being made an offer.

If you are not accepted on your chosen course at Teesside University, you may be offered a place on an alternative course with us - this will happen within two weeks. And if you receive a conditional offer but don't meet the required conditions, you may be offered a place on an alternative course with us.

UCAS Extra

This starts at the end of February for those not made an offer from their five choices. If you're eligible an additional button will appear on your UCAS Track screen. You must choose from courses with vacancies. Decisions are conditional, unconditional or unsuccessful. If you're unsuccessful or turn down an offer you can make more choices up to 30 June.

Exam results

We can make final decisions on conditional offers once exam results are published. If you've met the conditions we will confirm your offer.

If your offer includes an Access to Higher Edication Diploma or GCSE conditions, you must send a copy of your results to the relevant academic school as soon as possible.

If Teesside University is your firm choice and your place is confirmed, we will send you more information in the next few days.

You can also track the progress of your application on the UCAS website.

Conditional firm applicant

If Teesside University is your first (firm) choice and we confirm our offer of a place you will be notified by UCAS too. Read the UCAS letter carefully and follow any instructions.

Conditional insurance applicant

If Teesside University is your second choice and you meet the conditions, we will confirm our offer - but we will not contact you as you are committed to another institution. We will only contact you if that choice is unsuccessful.

If you are unsuccessful in getting your first choice place - and we confirm a place for you - you can use UCAS Track to check your record.
