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.
