Admissions policies

Data Protection for applicants

In compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998, the University protects the information it has about applicants and the standard response to enquiries about individuals is that information cannot be disclosed to other organisations and/or individuals without consent from the applicant themselves.

For further details (and exceptions), please see the 'applicants' section on our How does the 'University handle data?' webpage.

Unfortunately, this means that we are unable to talk to your parents or guardians/lecturers or third parties about your application - without your consent. We will, however, be able to give general information regarding procedures.

If you have any further queries, please contact us on +44 (0)1484 472 625 or email

Data Protection for students

Under our Data Protection Policy, we will not divulge any personal information to any other third-party and this also includes your parent/guardians/family members without your prior consent. Parents can talk to us with general queries, but we will not provide them with personal information (for example, your results and attendance).
