The best way to find out about our undergraduate courses is to come along to one of our Open Days. You will have the chance to meet students and staff, hear about the courses in more detail, tour around the workshops and studios, and find out what it might be like to study in a highly specialised art college.
Making an Application
Full-time BA (Hons) degrees and Foundation degrees (FdAs)
Applications for all our undergraduate courses should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Further information can be found in the UCAS handbook which is available through schools and colleges, or by visiting the website at www.ucas.com
When applying for a course at Hereford, you will need to include the Hereford College of Arts institution code: H18 as well as the individual course codes which can be found on the individual course web pages.
Once we have received your application, you will be invited to the college to attend an interview. Please note that you will be required to bring along a recent portfolio of work with you to interview. During the interview, the tutor will assess your suitability for the courses based on the entry requirements for that particular course - again, these can be found on the individual course web pages.
Please note that Hereford College of Arts is able to offer prospective students advisory interviews, on an informal basis, prior to completing your UCAS application form. Please contact one of HE Administrators on 01432 273359 or e-mail email@example.com for more details.
You can choose up to 5 universities/colleges and UCAS will send your application to all institutions at the same time. Applications to courses at Hereford College of Arts must reach UCAS by 15 January (though UCAS advises you to apply by mid November to allow colleges more time to view your portfolio). Late applications will be considered (subject to availability of places).
Part Time Undergraduate Courses
