Visit How to Apply for more information on applying to us as an international student.

Once your application is received, university admissions will email you to request supporting documentation such as English language qualifications, copies of official examination certificates and transcripts, etc. Applications will not be considered until all the supporting documentation is received.

We recommend getting your application in early to ensure that everything is in place for the start of your course.

Application decisions

Applications are processed as quickly as possible while carefully considering each application individually to ensure that you can succeed on the course you have applied for.

You will be notified of our decision via email, and decision types typically include:

  • An unconditional offer: You have met our academic entry requirements and we are happy to offer you a place, but please note that additional non-academic conditions will apply. Conditions commonly include paying your tuition fees, meeting immigration requirements, and for some courses passing a criminal records check.
  • A conditional offer: You have not yet met our entry requirements so conditions may be based on achieving required academic entry criteria (e.g. passing your current qualifications with certain marks), you will also need to meet additional non-academic conditions as above, before we can offer you a place.
  • Unsuccessful: You have not met our entry requirements and therefore we are not able to offer you a place on this occasion. Depending on the conditions not met, you may be invited to re-apply.

Please see our expected application decision timescales for more details.
