I have submitted my application, when will I get a response?

We aim to have a decision on your application within 10 working days of submission. Please be assured that all applications are given thorough consideration and therefore at peak times there may be a delay in getting this decision back to you. Ensure all application fields are completed, as those that do not meet the standard entry criteria or have information missing may need to be referred to an academic for a decision and will take longer to be assessed.

Please find more information on our admissions page and for further guidance, please contact find out more about the support on offer for our international students, please visit our international page.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
