When you register, you provide personal details, like your first names, last name, title, gender, date of birth, address, telephone numbers and email address. We transfer these details to your application and you will not be asked to enter them again.
You can change any of these details when completing your application.
The registration process generates a username and you create your own password, which you need to log in to your application. Make a note of your username and password and keep them in a safe place - Apply is case sensitive so write the details exactly as they are shown on screen.
When you register, you'll be asked to choose four security questions and enter relevant answers. If you need to contact us, we'll ask you these questions to check your identity, so make the answers individual and memorable.
If you're applying as an individual, ie not through a school, college or centre, you will need to answer a few questions to confirm your eligibility before you can start your application.
If you're applying through a school, college or centre, you'll need to obtain a 'buzzword' from the centre you're applying through. This buzzword links your application to your centre so that your referee can write and attach their reference. Once you've completed your application, you send it to your referee who adds the reference, checks and approves your application and sends the completed application to us.
To start your application:
If you don't have access to a computer, you can use a local online centre. Go to www.ukonlinecentres.com to search for your nearest centre.
