How to apply
How your application is considered
We view all applications to check predicted/achieved grades and any other circumstances that need to be taken into account. Decisions will be based not only on grades but also on your personal statement and reference.
We like to see evidence of transferable skills, for example:
- time management
- team work
- independent work
- critical and analytical abilities.
We only interview students studying alternative qualifications to the A-level syllabus, for example, students studying Access courses and students who may have been out of education for some time.
Returning to education
We welcome applications from mature candidates. Where appropriate, mature applicants are called for interview and/or invited to submit written work. Your qualifications to date will be considered, along with the length of time since you were last studying for a qualification - applicants need to have been in education within the last five years. If it is any longer than five years since you were last in education we may require you to take an Access Qualification and invite you along for interview.
If you are on an Access course, you will be considered individually and we will ask to see some of your recent written work.
If you have other qualifications (eg Vocational A-levels, Open University) you will be considered on an individual basis and you are recommended to contact our Admissions Administrator.
Overseas (non-UK) applicants
Overseas applications are welcomed and we will assess whether your qualification is of an equivalent standard for entry to our degree programme. Applicants who are made an offer may be invited to a visit day, but this is not mandatory. We are also happy to arrange an optional Skype interview for overseas applicants as an alternative to the visit day.
All deferred applications are assessed on the same basis as applications for the current year of entry.
We do ask applicants to let us know as early as possible if they are intending to defer. This helps us to adjust the number of offers we make, in order to achieve the required number of students in a given year.
