We will review your application

We aim to respond to your application within 28 working days of receiving your application. Or, if applicable, within the 'Round' timescales detailed in the 'How to apply' section of the programme webpage.

To allow us to deal with your application as quickly as possible, make sure you attach all required documents to your application. Please do not enquire about your application until 28 working days have expired.

We will respond with either a decision or notice that your application is being held pending a review of a group of applications together.

We will issue a conditional offer, unconditional offer or rejection letter

If your application is successful

If your application is successful, you will receive either a conditional or unconditional offer.

  • A conditional offer means you still need to achieve the grades or points outlined in your offer letter. You will need to upload the documents required to prove that you have met these requirements.
  • An unconditional offer means you have met all of the academic and English language requirements.

If your application is unsuccessful

If your application is unsuccessful then we will send you an email to inform you of this which will outline the reason why we have been unable to offer you a place on this particular programme.

Your application status will be updated to 'Declined' on Applicant-Self Service.
