How to apply
Advice to applicants
Mitigating circumstances may be personal or family illness, other family circumstances, change of teachers during a course, problems with school facilities or an unusual curriculum followed by your school or college.
We recommend that information on mitigating circumstances that have affected or are likely to affect your academic performance should be included in the referee's report.
We cannot usually consider information that is supplied after an adverse decision has been made on an application by the admitting School.
If you encounter mitigating circumstances after you have submitted your application, please inform the admissions staff in the School to which you applied as soon as possible.
Where mitigating circumstances have already been considered, for example by the relevant Exam Board, we will not be able to make further allowances.
How your application is considered
Decisions are made on the basis of the application as a whole with a particular focus on educational achievement and predicted grades.
Upon receiving their offer, students will be invited to attend a Visit Day specifically tailored to them, where they will sample aspects of their chosen programme, meet academics individually, hear from current students and find out about the latest Year Abroad options. We strongly encourage all offer-holders to come for a Visit Day.
For 2017 entry, you may be invited to an interview prior to an offer being made for this course - current practice is not to interview, but changes may be made for 2017 entry. It is likely that a decision will be made during spring/summer 2016.
Returning to education
You will be required to produce a piece of written work, for assessment by the Admissions Tutor. Once you have applied, the Admissions Administrator will contact you with a list of topics/questions. You will be asked to choose one and produce a piece (1500 words) on that subject, for submission by the deadline given by the Administrator.
