Parents and Carers

Understanding the application journey

Application times can vary from several weeks to several months depending on the course, for example; if it is equal consideration for all applicants before a specific date, if it is an international application, or requires interviews and shortlisting.

In any case, the process of supporting the young person applying for university will be very similar. and is detailed in the UCAS Parents Journey by clicking the image below.

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.
