All applications for undergraduate degrees are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) Apply system.
Ask your teacher or adviser from your school or college for the UCAS buzzword. You need the buzzword when you register on the Apply system. This makes it clear which school or college you are applying from.
All UK schools and colleges and a small number of EU and international establishments are registered with UCAS.
If you are applying independently, or are applying from a school or college which is not registered to manage applications, you will still use the Apply system. You will not need a buzzword.

Each August you can also apply to Newcastle University through Clearing, if you haven't already secured a place at university yet.
This may be because you just missed the terms of an offer or you didn't apply by the UCAS deadline.
During Clearing, all universities with spaces available on their degree courses advertise these vacancies – usually on their websites and on the UCAS website.
Find out more about how Clearing works at Newcastle on our dedicated Clearing website.
