Thinking of applying to university?

What you learn in books is just the start. Exploring your university options means you are taking the first steps towards a new future where you can explore a subject you’re passionate about, enhance your employability, gain independence, enjoy new experiences and find the people who will push you to achieve things you never thought you could. 

Our innovative and inclusive approach to learning, Education 2030, means that you will learn in a focused teaching format, studying fewer modules at a time instead of many all at once. Our students benefit from more time to engage and focus on each topic and receive faster assessment feedback. You’ll get a real sense of belonging by working more closely with the same teaching team and group of course mates on each block, and have a better study-life balance overall, leaving you free to enjoy all the other important aspects of university life.

Here at wý we welcome all applications, no matter what your background. It's our goal to help you reach your goal, by ensuring you have the best opportunity to go onto higher education. To make sure you get fair and equal access to higher education, when looking at your application, we consider more than just your grades – we take into account any challenges that you may have faced in your education and the potential effect this may have had on your qualifications. To do this we’ll look at contextual information from your UCAS form.
