What are your options?
To begin with, think about what you would like to study. There are many excellent options. Find out more about our study programmes here. Then check the minimum entry requirements for the programme you are interested in.
Here's how to apply to study with us:
Making a study application is a simple process. You can apply now, even if you are still waiting on exam results. Follow the steps below to complete your application.
Create an account in MyLinc. Use a personal email (not school or work) that you can always access and a password you can remember. Your email is our primary contact method during your application journey. Monitor your spam or junk folders for an account verification email. If this doesn’t arrive, contact us.
Once your MyLinc account is set up, log in to make your application. Let us know what you would like to study and give us as much information as you can, as this will help speed up your application.
We ask for information about:
- Your chosen study programme
- When you expect to start
- Your previous study, including your last year of high school
- Your English language test results (if English is not your first language)
- Other documents to support your application if applicable.
If you are unable to provide your documents in your application, email them to email@example.com.
We’ll keep in touch with you about your application via email and may ask for more information. Once we have everything we need for assessment, and if you meet the criteria for your chosen qualification, you will receive an offer letter via email.
If we require supporting documentation, we will have itemised this on your offer. So we can move you through the enrolment process more quickly, please supply this documentation as soon as possible. If we’ve asked you to provide evidence of your identity, read the verification instructions carefully.
After you accept your offer on MyLinc, you’ll receive instructions on how to complete your enrolment. You’ll also get your LU username, password and email address. These are sent via email, so monitor your junk/spam folders.
