Frequently asked questions

How many courses can I apply to?

On your UCAS form, you can apply for up to five choices. You are welcome to apply for more than one degree course here but this will count as another one of your five choices.

You can also apply to a Foundation Certificate course at the same time that you apply to a degree course here. This won't count as a UCAS choice and shouldn't be included on your UCAS form.

What happens if I miss the deadline for applying?

There is a high demand for places, so if you miss the deadline for your course, please contact our Admissions team at admissions@lipa.ac.uk

Can I defer entry?

We do not accept applications for deferred entry.

I have a learning difficulty or disability, will this affect my application?

We value diversity and will welcome your application. If you would like to request a reasonable adjustment as part of the audition/interview process, please contact: Howard Ashton, Admissions Manager to discuss this. Email h.ashton@lipa.ac.uk or call +44 (0)151 330 3084.
