Undergraduate courses

As your first step, you can apply for any of our degree courses through UCAS.

There’s comprehensive guidance on applying through UCAS, along with advice and tips on the UCAS website. Once we get your application, we’ll send you an email to let you know your application has been received and for some of our courses we will ask you to submit additional information to us through our own online portal.

The application fee for submitting an application through UCAS for 2023 entry is £27.00 if applying to more than one university course, or £22.50 for one university choice.

International students can apply through UCAS or direct through our online portal.

When applying through UCAS, you will need to know our Institution code and number when you apply.

Institution code: LIVIN Institution number: L48

You will also need the code for your course, which is listed on the How to Apply section of the relevant course page.

Your first step is to complete and submit an application to us using our online portal. As soon as our applications open, you will find the link to the online portal on the relevant course apply page. Applications for these courses are considered in the order they are submitted and we close each course once it becomes full.

When to apply

When to apply

For UK students the undergraduate UCAS application deadline is 25 January at 18:00 (UK time) for those interested in joining us in September 2023.

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

If you are applying from outside the UK, you are not bound by the UCAs deadline but you should be aware that the majority of our audition/interview events take place in February and March and places begin to fill up after this time. For more information, please contact our international team at international@lipa.ac.uk

What happens after you apply

Applying through UCAS or our online portal is just the first step. Once we’ve received and reviewed your application you may be called to an audition and/or interview.

Auditions and interviews

If you're invited to an online audition or interview, we aim to give you a sense of what it's like to be a student here and how we teach. This helps you to decide whether we are a good fit for you.

We'll send you guidelines three weeks beforehand to help you prepare. You can also find the guidelines on each of the course pages from November onwards. There may be an audition fee. Travel grants and audition fee waivers for UK students are available if you meet certain criteria.

Audition and interview venues

For UK applicants, all of our auditions and interviews are held here in Liverpool.

For applicants who live outside the UK, you can attend an audition or interview here, but we also hold a number of auditions and interviews outside the UK which may be nearer to you. Our International team will advise you on this. If you can't get to an overseas or Liverpool audition/interview, we will set up an online audition/interview.

After your audition/interview
We will contact you to inform you about our decision. For degree courses, this will be confirmed by UCAS. You can follow the progress of your application on the UCAS website. For Foundation Certificates and postgraduate courses, we will contact you directly.
There are four possible outcomes following an audition/interview for any of our courses:

  • An unconditional offer of a place
  • A conditional offer based on exam results or further assessed work
  • An offer of a place on a different course. For example, if you applied for a degree course, we may offer you a place on a related Foundation Certificate course or a four-year course which includes a Foundation Year
  • A notification that your application has been unsuccessful

Our decision will be final. Unfortunately, we do not supply feedback to unsuccessful candidates. In many cases, a lack of success is due to the level of competition for places, rather than a specific personal weakness.
