How to Apply


Applying to study one of our University courses at Cardinal Newman couldn’t be easier. Just follow these simple instructions below to become a student with us.

Step One – Register Interest

Give our friendly team a call on 01772 460181 or drop the HE Development Manager, Kathy, an email at KSalisbury@cardinalnewman.ac.uk to get some more information. We will be holding drop-in information and advice sessions throughout the Spring/Summer term.

Please ensure that you have the following information to hand before beginning an application:

– Your qualifications
– Your employment history
– A personal statement
– Name and address of a person willing to provide you with a reference

When you have finished, simply click send and a member of the team will be in touch soon.

Step Three – Interview

After we have received your application, you will be sent an interview invitation. Interviews take place during the summer term and are a chance for you to ask any questions you may still have about the course. After your successful interview, you will be sent an offer letter, offering you a place at Cardinal Newman and we will also send you all the information you need to get started, including Student Finance and Additional Learning Support.

Step Three – Enrolment

Once you have been offering a place, we will send you an enrolment appointment. This is where you will bring along relevant documents, such as identification and proof of qualifications, so we can enrol you onto the course, ready to start in September.



The application for School Direct at Cardinal Newman is divided into two phases: Apply 1 and Apply 2.

Apply 1: All students must use the Apply 1 route first. Prospective students can apply online for up to three courses starting in academic year 2017/18 through Apply 1. If you are unsuccessful via this route, then you have the option to try again via Apply 2.

Apply 2: If you apply through Apply 1 but you aren’t offered a place, or you decline all the offers you receive, you can make an application for new choices through Apply 2. However, in Apply 2, you are restricted to one choice at a time.

Programmes may shut at different times throughout the application process cycle. However, all courses available through UCAS Teacher Training must accept all applications for a minimum period of two weeks after opening.

After this two-week period, if a sufficient number of applications have been received, the course may stop accepting any more submissions.

Subjects that are oversubscribed nationally, such as PE and History, can be shut once National Curriculum recruitment targets have been reached. An early application in the first few weeks is advised for all subjects and is essential in subjects where there is a great deal of competition for places.

You can apply online through UCAS Teacher Training here.
