Full-time first degrees

Most applications for full-time first degrees, higher national diplomas (HNDs) and foundation degrees (including EU and international applicants) must be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Apply through UCAS

Our name and code is TEES T20. If you're applying for a course at one of our partner colleges, enter the campus code:

  • Bede Sixth Form College 4
  • Darlington College 1
  • Hartlepool College of Further Education 5
  • Redcar & Cleveland College 6
  • Stockton Riverside College 3
  • Teesside University Darlington 7

If you want feedback on your application or offer decision, contact the relevant School - you will find the contact details on the relevant course page.

Part-time courses

If you are applying for a part-time undergraduate course, you don't go through UCAS. Apply directly by using the 'apply online' button on the relevant course page on our website.

International students

International applicants (outside the European Union) can complete our online application form. If you receive an offer of a place on a full-time undergraduate course you must register an application with UCAS.

When to apply

You can start applying for courses in the September of the year before you want to start. The main UCAS closing date is 26 January 2022. You are encouraged to apply by then although late applications are accepted through UCAS until 30 June. Clearing is available from July to September each year.

Offers, interviews and open days

You get an official confirmation of a course offer through UCAS, or from us if your course is not in UCAS. You may be invited to an interview or applicant open day before you are made an offer.

If you aren't accepted on your chosen course at Teesside University, you may be offered a place on an alternative course with us - this will happen within two weeks. And if you receive a conditional offer but don't meet the required conditions, you may be offered a place on an alternative course with us.

UCAS Extra

UCAS Extra opens at the end of February for those who haven't been made an offer from their five choices. If you're eligible for UCAS Extra, an additional button will appear on your UCAS Track screen. You must choose from courses with vacancies. Decisions are conditional, unconditional or unsuccessful. If you're unsuccessful or turn down an offer you can continue making more choices up until 30 June.


Clearing is available from July to September each year. If you already have your exam results but you have no offers, you can use Clearing from July. If you had conditional offers but your exam results didn't go to plan, you can use Clearing from results day, when Clearing vacancies are listed in the UCAS search tool. If your exam results are reasonable and you're flexible on subject and location, there's still a good chance you'll find another course.
