Admissions and Course Vacancies

St Mary’s is a Catholic higher education institution which welcomes applications from people of any faith and none. Applications are considered in accordance with the College’s Admissions Policy, which is aligned with that of Queen’s University, with whom St Mary’s enjoys a collaborative partnership of academic provision.

St Mary’s does not use the UCAS scheme for the purpose of Admissions, so applications must be made directly to the college. Prospective undergraduates typically apply both to St Mary’s, and to other institutions via UCAS.
