Application passed to learner services.


Step 2  

Learner services will process all applications through our admissions system and issue an acknowledgment letter to the applicant (due to the number of applications this year you may wait up to 2 weeks to hear from us).


Step 3  

Academic departments then consider all applications and release batches for interview or rejection.

Step 4

Applicants are written to and invited for interview or notified of rejection.

There can often be a delay while departments issue interview times. During summer only limited interview times are available (from the 27th of June to mid August).


And Then?


Step 5

At the end of the interview you should be told of the interviewers decision & offered advice on finance.


Step 6

If you have been successful you will be sent a written offer.

Step 7 
You need to formally accept this offer.

Step 8

We will then write to you to invite you to an enrolment event in August.
