We want to help you find the right course for you!
As well as reading about the course you’re interested in, you should visit one of our Open Days which are held throughout the year and give you the opportunity to meet academic staff, current students and see the campus for yourself. They are an excellent opportunity for you to visit Reaseheath to discover the wide range of courses we can offer you and to get a real feel for student life.
You will be able to:
- Take a guided tour of the campus, view our facilities and accommodation
- Visit your chosen subject area and attend talks on courses that interest you
- Get advice on tuition fees, living costs and study support available
- Meet staff and speak to students about life and study at Reaseheath
For students to get the best out of their time at University Centre Reaseheath, we must both recognise that we owe obligations to each other. These obligations are set out in our Higher Education Student Contract. Before you accept an offer of a place at University Centre Reaseheath, it is important that you read these contract conditions.
Applying for a Full-Time Course
Applications for full-time Degrees and Foundation Degrees are made through UCAS www.ucas.com. Applications for all other full-time courses such as Access to HE and Level 4 Diplomas should be made directly to Reaseheath via the online application form.
Applications should be submitted to UCAS between 1 September and 15 January of the year prior to entry to the programme. Once you have applied through UCAS, your details will be sent from UCAS to us. If your application is successful you will receive either a conditional or an unconditional offer from us. You will then be invited to attend an interview or an applicant visit day where you have the opportunity to view the campus, facilities and speak to staff.
If you have missed the applications deadline, you may still be able to apply for a course using the ‘Clearing’ system or ‘UCAS Extra’. Applications received at UCAS after the deadline, up until 30 June, will only be considered if we still have vacancies for the course you have selected. Any applications made after this date will enter Clearing.
Reaseheath’s Higher Education courses are listed on UCAS. Individual course codes can be found on each course page of this website and in the Undergraduate Prospectus. The UCAS institution code for University of Chester validated courses is CHSTR C55.
Applying for a Part-Time Course
Applications for part-time courses validated by the University of Chester should be made directly to University Centre Reaseheath. When you have chosen your course, complete our online Part-Time Application Form. Your application will then be reviewed by our admissions team and you may be contacted for further information by the Course Manager and possibly invited for interview.
Applications from Mature Students (over 21)
Mature students and those with extensive relevant industrial experience are encouraged to apply. Applications are considered individually and admission may be based on criteria other than the qualifications listed. Potential applicants who believe they fall into this category are advised to contact the College to discuss their eligibility. If you have been away from study for a while or you’ve decided to change career – and you’re considering either full or part-time study, our specialist Access to HE Diploma offers an excellent introduction to studying land-based subjects. You will gain the knowledge and confidence to consider progressing on to a higher education course.
Depending on whether your course is full or part-time please see the sections on applying
Applications from International Students
Regardless of your nationality, if you are applying from outside the European Union you are able to apply online via UCAS. It is advisable to submit your application as early as possible, as this will give you plenty of time to make visa, travel and accommodation arrangements. If you have missed the applications deadline, you may still be able to apply for a course using the ‘Clearing’ system or ‘UCAS Extra’.
All international students must show evidence that they meet the English Language requirement for their course of study. Applicants will be expected to comply and abide by the regulations set out by the United Kingdom Boarder Agency (UKBA). Applicants who have been made a formal offer will be required to deposit an agreed sum of money to be offset against their tuition fees in advance of the college’s issuing a Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) required for visa applications.
Once your application is received we will review it and contact you within five working days.
You may receive a phone call from one of the course teams who might wish to introduce themselves to you and have an informal conversation about your application, you might also receive a request for a formal telephone interview.
You will be given the opportunity to visit the College, have a look around the facilities and meet members of staff to talk about the course.
