How to apply
Choose your course
Use the course search to choose the right course and then get all the information you need to apply through UCAS below.
Full-time first degrees
All applications for full-time first degrees, higher national diplomas (HNDs) and foundation degrees (including EU and international applicants) must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Courses are listed on the UCAS website.
Apply through UCAS
Our name and code is TEES T20. If you're applying for a course at one of our partner colleges, enter the campus code:
- Darlington College
- Hartlepool College of Further Education 5
- Middlesbrough College 2
- Redcar & Cleveland College 6
- Stockton Riverside College 3
- Teesside University Darlington 7
If you want feedback on your application or offer decision, contact the relevant School - you will find the contact details on the relevant course page.
If you are applying for a part-time undergraduate course, you don't need to go through UCAS. You can apply directly by using the 'apply online' button on the relevant course page on our website.
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 the September of 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 receiving UCAS applications for some art and design courses is 24 March. Relevant deadlines are indicated against each course on the UCAS website.
Offers, interviews and open days
You get an official confirmation of a course offer through UCAS, or from us if your course is not in UCAS. You may be invited to an interview or applicant open day before you are made an offer.
If you aren't 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 opens at the end of February for those who haven't been made an offer from their five choices. If you're eligible for UCAS Extra, 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 continue making more choices up until 30 June.
Clearing is available from July to September each year. If you already have your exam results but you have no offers, you can use Clearing from July. If you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, you can use Clearing from results day, when Clearing vacancies are listed in the UCAS search tool. If your exam results are reasonable and you're flexible on subject and location, there's still a good chance you'll find another course.
