How to apply

Please note that applications will still be considered against our published entry requirements and would not be guaranteed an offer. Applications from those who are not flagged as WP will not be considered and will be withdrawn.
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
Your application will be assessed on the factors listed above. If you receive an offer through UCAS and are currently living in the UK, you will then be invited to attend an applicant Virtual Visit Day. The Visit Day will provide an opportunity to engage with our students and academic staff and to find out more about what life is like as a student in the Department. You will also take part in a Year 1 group tutorial taster session run by one of our lecturers.
Applicants applying from outside the UK will be sent a link to access Virtual Visit Day content after you have received your offer.
Returning to education
Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different backgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
Overseas (non-UK) applicants
Applications from overseas students are very welcome. Generally, overseas students will be considered for an offer without having to visit our Department in advance.
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.
