What happens next
When UCAS sends us a copy of your application, we consider whether to offer you a place based on your qualifications, personal statement and referee's report. In some instances, a portfolio review or interview may be required. UCAS will inform you of our decision.
As soon as individual courses become full, we will close them and no further applications for those courses will be accepted.
If you are given a conditional offer from us, and your results meet the conditions of the offer, you will receive a letter confirming your place.
If you narrowly miss the grades of your offer, we will consider your application again and you may still be offered a place.
You are advised to apply before the initial UCAS deadline of 15 January 2019 as courses can fill up. Please note however that we do continue to accept applications after this date.
Please note: you will be able to apply for courses starting in January 2019 very soon.
