How to apply

International Foundation Programme

Applicants need to apply through Education Index, official representative of Foundation Programme of the university.


Applications for all of our Undergraduate programmes should be made through UCAS.


Applications for postgraduate courses must be sent directly to the university. You can apply online. We welcome applications from candidates with good degrees or alternative qualifications. In general, you will need to have the equivalent of a UK first or upper-second class honours degree from your country. For Russia and Kazakhstan – a good bakalavr (or Specialist diploma for old system) from a recognised accredited institution with an average grade of 4 or above. Plus an English Language qualification.

Applications for courses starting in Autumn open in September of the previous year. For international students the last date to submit application for an undergraduate degree is 30th of June. There is no strict deadline for postgraduate applications, we consider them on the first come – first served basis. It is best to apply as early as possible, especially for high demand courses we cannot guarantee places at a late stage. For any additional information, please send a request to Aston University.
