2. Review of your application

2. Upon receipt of your application, we will send you a card to acknowledge we have received your information. We may contact you to clarify information, send any further documentation or to inform you of any interviews or other criteria we will need you to meet.

3. Decision

3. Once we have reviewed your application, we will confirm our decision with you. The decision could be one of the following:

  • Unconditional; which means you have to meet no additional academic criteria to be accepted on the course. Please make sure to accept our decision by returning the reply slip to us so your place is confirmed.
  • Conditional; which means you have to meet additional academic criteria, such as passing a course, or completing a qualification to be accepted on the course. You will need to accept our decision by returning the reply slip to us so your place is confirmed, even if you are still waiting for your conditions to be met. If your offer is ‘conditional’, we would expect you to email your paperwork once you meet the criteria we have given, so that we can confirm you have met your conditions. Once you have met the criteria, you will be classified as ‘unconditional’. If you are not able to meet the conditions of our offer, or cannot provide evidence within a suitable timeframe, your application will be rejected. It is your responsibility to keep us informed of any change in circumstance. We are very happy to provide detailed feedback to help you with any future applications you wish to make.
  • Rejected; which means that you do not meet the entry criteria, and we would not be able to continue with your application any further at this time.

4. Accepting your offer
