The University has robust and equitable admissions procedures, based on all relevant academic and personal circumstances, as outlined in the application form and/or in subsequent correspondence. We carefully consider academic qualifications, the personal statement, the reference, the results of any additional tests such as UKCAT or LNAT if appropriate, and the outcome of any interview as required. We aim to ensure that potential and suitability for study are thus identified.
Any further contextual information, for example that on care leavers and parental education, that is or may become available from UCAS forms, may be used to supplement the overall picture of a candidate, but no single piece of such information will, on its own, be conclusive in an admission decision. The additional information will be useful in terms of ensuring that adequate support is provided to students once they are on course and will assist us in ensuring that our activities in terms of outreach and widening participation are effective.
