UCAS Course Codes:

Please bear in mind that some subjects (e.g. psychology) are offered across a number of different "schools" or "colleges" or "faculties" within a university, and it is your responsibility to identify the correct code for the course to which you wish to progress from your programme. 


If you are studying on an Access to Humanities/Social Science programme, then you may only apply for courses within the Arts or Social Sciences.

If you are studying on an Access to Science/STEM, then you may only apply for courses within the Sciences.

If you input the wrong code on UCAS, you will receive a rejection from the university, and there is nothing anyone can do to correct your mistake at that point.
