    Heya Zoë, great to hear you're thinking about Staffs and are coming to an open day I'm the official rep for Staffs on TSR so if you've got anything you need to know feel free to get in contact.



    Heya, try not to worry about this - are you feeling nervous about how your results will go? We consider all our applicants on a case by case basis so we wouldn't necessarily reject you outright because of grades, and foundation years are a good way to bring your skills up to degree level if your results don't go the way you planned. You can give our admissions team a call to talk through your options if you're stressed.

    Try not to get too preoccupied with your application, it's time to focus on your A-levels

    Katie
    Thank you Katie It's just that stuff at home isn't going well so I am quite distracted!

    Sorry to hear that things aren't so easy at the moment. Have you spoken to your tutors about what's happening? It's good to make them aware so that you get the support you need, especially when it comes to exams and things.

    Hello,

    I've applied to Staffordshire University for Law and received a conditional offer.

    "Obtain a minimum of 260 points at GCE A-Level" bearing in mind I'm only doing two A-levels that would mean I have to get 2 A*s just to meet the minimum.

    I already have 270 points by doing my AAT Accountancy combined with my AS levels (160+110)

    I know every application is individual assessed but 2 A*s sounds very unexpected compared with other offers I have received

    I'd like some clarification on this please.

    Hi,I have applied for law and have not received my application back yet. I wondered if that department is slower on giving/ rejecting offers than some of the others as a couple of people have received theirs back from Staffs (different subjects) whereas I haven't heard anything back yet. Also, do Staffs offer prospective students unconditional offers at all? In addition to this I was also wondering if Staffs reject my application for Law (3 years) and offer me a place on the Law with foundation degree instead? Is that also possible?Many thanks.

    Hey i'm Kris, i'm covering the official rep account while Katie is on holiday,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you about this, after talking to our team it all depends on what time the subject area has to review the applications which they receive. For some subjects they are able to review applications very quickly, but unfortunately the time length can vary. I will talk to our Law school again and see if they have any time scales for when they are likely to get back to you.

    We do in some circumstances offer unconditional offers, but this all depends on your application.

    If when we review your application feel that you would be more suited to the Law with foundation degree course then we can offer you that instead, it will all be down to your application.

    If you do have any other questions then please do let me know and ill get back to you as soon as i can

    Hi Kris,

    Thank you very much for getting back to me, I actually just rang the admissions people to ask as to what stage my application is at and they said they'd send an email to say I raised a concern as to what is going on. I know a few people have got offers back and I have had my application in for around 2 months now and was getting slightly concerned. I am hoping they'll get back to me

    Hey,
    Congratulations on getting your interview, we look forward to seeing you in February,

    Try not to worry, I've talked to our Nursing team and got a few tips to help you out

    Come dressed smartly (like you would for a job interview)
    The activities on the day you will have are a group talk, a numeracy test, a group discussion and an interview
    We would also suggest reading some current campaigns on the RCN website / other Nursing journals so that you have more knowledge of the Nursing profession.

    Keep us update with how you get on, and is there anything else which I can help you with?

    Hey,

    Sorry for the slow reply to this, I've talked to our enquiries team about this and for us to advise you properly we would need to talk to you directly. If you can give them a call on 01782 294400 or email them on [email protected] then they can go through your application with you.

    (Now although I will be here over the Christmas break, no one from enquiries will be in after 4pm today until the 4th January 2016, but if you email they will get back to you as soon as they can)

    Hey,

    So talking to the teams, generally it will take a week for your application to be looked at and for us to get back to you. The time does vary between different subjects, but it shouldn't take too much longer.
    There are exception's to this is, so if (as you should) have declared any disabilities or criminal convictions or you have a non-standard qualification which needs to be reviewed, it will take longer for us to fully review your application.
    - It can also take slightly longer at this point in the year when staff members have time off for Christmas.

    - If you have any questions about the application process or it seems to be taking a lot longer then please let me know and we'll try to have a look for you

    Hey,

    That sounds good So if I remember right you came when it was really raining.
    Unfortunately the people who are responsible for looking after applications are all on Christmas break, they'll back in from the 4th January, so you should hear at some point after then. (It'll all depend on where you application was in the process before Christmas - I thought that you might have got lucky with hearing back before Christmas).
    But shouldn't be too long to wait now
