University College Birmingham Postgraduate Application Process 2023/2024

New applicants applying for postgraduate courses at the University College Of Birmingham are to follow the following process to apply:

Step 1:  Complete Your Online Registration:

If you have been offered a place at University College Birmingham, you will be sent an email and text message from our Admissions team to complete your online registration. It is very important that you complete your online registration, as this is the first part of your enrolment. If you have signed up to UCBconnect or studied with us before you may already be able to log in to the UCB Portal, otherwise you will need to set up your student account.

The email you receive will provide you with your own unique link to do this if needed, and the text message will contain your UCB Student ID which you will need to register.

How to complete online registration? 

Once you have completed your online registration, you have created your student dashboard. Now you need to log out and log back in, in order to upload your documents. Make sure you upload ALL documents that are relevant to you, including:

  • your chosen photo for ID (no Snapchat filters, please, let’s keep it professional!)
  • your proof of ID – see below for the list of acceptable identity documents
  • and any residence evidence – e.g. your passport/residence documents, if relevant
  • scans/clear photos of results of qualifications you already hold (e.g. GCSEs in English and Maths)
  • any evidence of your name change, if your name is now different from the name on the documentation you provide to us, e.g. deed poll document or marriage certificate. All the systems will use the name on your official documentation.

Step 2:  Upload Your Results:

When you receive your results, you will need to upload them to your student dashboard. You will need your student ID and password created in Step 1 to log in. Once you have logged in, please navigate to the course applications section of your dashboard and select ‘upload image. As soon as your image has been uploaded, it will automatically be saved. 

A few things to note: 

  • Do not email us your results. If you are having trouble uploading your results, don’t worry, our Admissions team will call you to help you with this process.
  • Even if you haven’t achieved the results you were hoping for, please still upload them so we can see if there is another course in our portfolio that we can offer you.
