The application process
After you have applied we will email you to let you know that we have received your application. We will send you a student number which enables us to deal with your application more efficiently. However this does not mean that we have offered you a place.
You will receive an acknowledgement by email within 48 hours that your application has been received.
Decisions on your application
Within 5 working days we will aim to send you one of five responses from us, depending on the information you have provided in your application:
1. We approve your application
We will send you an Offer letter telling you that your application has been accepted. In order that you can become a student the next step is for you to register with us, which is an online process, and pay your course fees. We will send you deadlines and information about how to do this.
2. We provisionally approve your application
You will need to supply further information and/or documentary evidence of your qualifications before we can make you a final offer. Once this has been received we will aim to respond within 5 working days.
3. We require more information and/or documentary evidence
We will email you for this information so that we can make a decision on your application. Once the required evidence/information has been received we will aim to respond with a decision within 5 working days.
4. You may not meet our entry requirements
We will refer your application to our Admissions Panel for a final decision. The Admissions Panel considers all aspects of your application, including qualifications, relevant work experience and reasons for study. We will aim to send the decision within five working days from the date of notifying you that the application has been referred to the Admissions Panel for consideration.
5. You definitely do not meet the entrance requirements
Our admission team will advise you about what further exams you need to pass to become eligible.
