Notes

The dates / deadlines / interview / notification periods discussed on this page rely on the applicant:

  • providing the correct information on their application form
  • including any additional documents we have asked for such as passports, English Language and other certificates
  • attending or responding to any invitations to interview.

The university aims to acknowledge an application within 5 days of receipt.

  • UCAS deadlines are set by UCAS and are therefore outwith our control
  • Direct deadlines are set by the university. If there are any issues with meeting a direct deadline, then please contact us using the details provided in your offer letter.
