How your application is considered
All applicants should be aware that information provided in the personal statement may be used as the basis for further discussion during any interview with an academic member of staff.
Further information and advice on writing your personal statement and the UCAS application process can be found on the UCAS website .
Skills, knowledge, abilities, interests
We do not suggest that applicants prepare specially for the assessment, and it's important to note that it is not an entrance exam. The assessment is designed to test an applicant's aptitude and give us a picture of your current level of understanding and knowledge in key areas of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
An applicant's performance in the test is assessed in the context of your individual educational background and will form just one element of your application, alongside your qualifications, personal statement and the referee's statement.
If you are invited to complete an academic assessment, please sign up to Zoom if you haven't already done so, and familiarise yourself with the service. If this is your first-time using Zoom, you may wish to have a trial 'meeting' with a friend or family member ahead of your academic assessment. We will send you all the instructions you will need via email. Please also remember to check your email for the Zoom links in order to attend.
Please inform us of any disability or special requirements prior to taking the academic assessment. You can do this by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation.
Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year only and two years at the maximum in exceptional circumstances. Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date. Your English Language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
We normally also guarantee a place in the current year should the applicant's gap year plans change, subject to availability of places.
