We receive your application from UCAS. Once we have it, we email you an acknowledgment.
Now we start to consider your application against the entry requirements, and read your personal statement and references. We may ask for more details like a portfolio or copies of certificates.
Whether we make an offer certainly is not just about grades, it’s also about your personal statement and circumstances.
Applying for some courses like computer arts and mental health nursing may take longer as we need more information.
An unconditional offer – This means we’ve decided you’re already qualified for admission to the course you have chosen, and have offered you a unconditional place.
A conditional offer – We will admit you to the course, provided you achieve the grades and any other conditions before 31 August. The conditions will be clearly set out in UCAS track.
A rejection – We are unable to offer you a place on the course.
If you have made more than one application for different courses or universities, keeping checking UCAS track as it can take longer for your offers to appear.
