Applying to university with a criminal record can be intimidating. Since 2018, UCAS no longer ask all applicants to tick the ‘criminal convictions’ box and universities have developed their own policies.* Many do still ask, but a growing number now ask about ‘conditions or restrictions’ that might affect study. Some no longer ask at all.
We’ve created a searchable database of all university policies on criminal records. Search by university or look for all universities that don’t ask about unspent convictions.
We’ve worked hard to make sure the database is up to date but policies do change. If there is something wrong please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
*UCAS applicants to courses leading directly to regulated professions will be asked about criminal records that are not protected. For more information see UCAS or contact email@example.com
