Apply is the on-line method of application via the UCAS website. Nearly all schools and colleges now provide the facility for their students to apply electronically. If you are attending a school or college that uses this service, they will have a buzzword which you will need to register. However Apply can also be used by those who are applying independently in the UK and overseas.

Take some time to check your on-line application before it is submitted to UCAS. It is important that you take care when completing the 'choices' section and use the correct institution codes and programme codes.

You can apply for up to five programmes so make sure you think through your options carefully before applying. Also check that the 'education' section displays your correct qualification details. Your application should then be forwarded to your referee, who will check your application, provide the reference and forward the application to UCAS. If you are applying independently, you will be responsible for obtaining and adding the reference yourself.

It costs £23 to apply for 2-5 choices. If, however, you wish to only apply to the University of Salford and you are only applying for one programme, you may use a single entry at a fee of £12. You may pay on-line using a credit or debit card, or alternatively if you are applying from your school or college they may choose to be invoiced.

The benefits of on-line application mean that you can follow the progress of your application 24 hours a day,seven days a week using Track by logging on to
