Do you apply the course or apply for the course?

Do you apply the course or apply for the course?

 

Apply for the course

The word ‘apply’ has two different usages:

  1. “apply” + object = put on / use
  2. “apply for/to” + object = request

Apply sunscreen (to your face)

Apply for the course
Apply to (the) university

Note:

The first usage sounds a little too formal for general spoken situations. The follow is more common for this:

Put on some sunscreen
