Advice to applicants
Factors contributing to a successful application include:
- past academic performance;
- predicted academic performance;
- enthusiasm for, and realistic grasp of, chosen degree programme;
- evidence of interpersonal skills and non-academic interests/achievements.
How your application is considered
The basis of our offer made will be a combination of information supplied on the UCAS form, your predicted academic performance and performance at interview (where applicable).
Use of contextual data
We make our interviewers aware of which applicants hold a WP or WP Plus Flag and what impact this could potentially have on their interview performance. We also consider the Widening Participation status of an applicant after the confirmation of exam results, and may offer a place on the course to an applicant holding a WP or WP Plus Flag who has narrowly missed the grades required.
Please note, contextual data only applies to UK applicants under the age of 21; for further information please visit the contextual data page of our website.
All promising applicants who are resident in the UK/EU and who apply before 15th January will be invited to attend an interview.
Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications
If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process. If you are planning to re-sit the final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but we may require further information in order to make an informed judgment on your application.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.
