After you apply
Decisions on your application
You will be notified by email when a decision has been made on your application.
If you have any questions about the decision, you can contact us via email@example.com
Receiving an offer
If your application is successful you will receive a formal offer of admission, which contains information about:
- your chosen degree programme
- your period of study (including your start date at the University)
- your fee status and any additional programme costs, such as research or fieldwork costs
- the deadline by which you need to accept or decline the offer
- any conditions on your offer, such as supporting documents that you must provide
Where competition for places is strong, some programmes operate a waiting list system. Regardless of competition for places, we recommend that you reply as early as possible - definitely before the response date given in your offer - otherwise you may be deemed to have withdrawn your interest in the programme.
If you need more time to make a decision, please contact us as an extension to the deadline may be possible.
Accepting the offer
Make sure you read your offer carefully and follow the instructions.
At the time of accepting an offer you are not committing yourself financially or academically to the University, but an early indication of your response does help us to manage the admissions process.
We will send you confirmation when we receive your acceptance.
If you receive and accept an unconditional offer of admission you will subsequently receive information with your joining instructions.
If you receive a conditional offer then you must provide any outstanding supporting documents (such as English language test results, official degree transcripts or signed forms) as soon as possible through the emails. You can upload scanned copies of your documents as we do not normally need to see paper copies.
You can accept the offer before submitting these documents, but we cannot make an unconditional offer, confirm your place or provide any further formal information until we have received all the required documents.
Declining the offer
You can decline your offer via email.
If you intend to decline your offer, please let us know promptly so we can offer a place to any applicants on a waiting list for your degree programme.
We wish you every success with your future studies.
We receive many more applications from well-qualified students than there are places available.
If your application has not been successful, you can request feedback from us or refer to our guidance for unsuccessful applicants, which explains some of the common reasons we why we reach this decision.
