Assessing your application

Once your application has been received, it will be given careful consideration. If the course you’ve applied for requires you to attend an interview, audition or show your portfolio, you will be notified of what you need to do next.

Factors that are considered include:

  • Achieved and predicted grades
  • Evidence of knowledge and commitment in personal statement
  • Reference
  • Performance at interview, audition, or portfolio review
  • Relevant experience
  • Any exceptional circumstances

When we finish considering your application you will be informed of our decision in writing. This will either be sent to you via UCAS Hub, or if you applied directly to the University, we will send you an email.

If you are an international applicant you can find out more about what happens after you apply on our international webpages or download your offer letter from the International Applicant Portal.
