    Hi,

    I received my offer on the 8th of December and haven't heard anything about an applicant day, should i get in touch with the University? As I'm wanting visit before I decide on my firm.

    Thanks in advance.
    Hi there,

    That is an odd one, sorry you haven't heard anything! Can you get in contact with the university and hopefully they can help out.

    Cheers,
    Keir

    Hi again,

    I seemed to apply for 1st year entry. Is it possible to change to 2nd year entry now, or wait until results day?

    Thanks
    We can change your offer now but to be honest it is probably better to wait till your exam results come out because we change it to second year now and you miss the conditions ever so slightly you might not be offered back into 1st year if the programme is full.

    If you are worried, contact the university for an in-depth chat about your choices.

    Cheers,
    Keir

    Hi Annejanedownie,

    The School of Management and Languages have started to give out offers but they like to look at every part of the application. They will look at your personal statement and teacher reference. Unfortunately this takes a little bit of time so apologies that we haven't been back in touch with you but we are considering all of our applications. All I can say is hang tight and good luck. I hope you hear good news soon.

    Cheers,

    Do we have any updates on the Artificial Intelligence course?

    It's probably the one I'm most excited about(But the one I'm least hopeful of getting in) so I'd love to hear that the decision has been made so I can concentrate my energies!

    Hi Anne

    We're hoping to have processed all the BSL applications we received by the 15 January deadline over the next few weeks so please do keep checking UCAS Track.

    BSL takes us a little longer than most of our other programmes as our Admissions Team and BSL Team consider the applications together and make decisions from there. Fingers crossed for you :crossedf:

    Thanks

    Thank you for your reply. It's good to the know the process behind making offers and understandable how it will effect and lengthen the decision process.

    I am keeping everything crossed myself. 😀

    Thanks again.

    Hi EllieC12345,

    Apologies for the delay in getting your offer to you and I know that you are worried.

    Just to explain what we do here at the university, we like to look at every application in detail (Personal Statement, Tutor Reference etc.) so it takes us a little more time. It is not a bad thing that you haven't heard anything yet.

    I totally understand it is one of the most stressful decisions to make having gone through it myself just a few years ago. If you would like to speak directly to the admissions tutor just drop us an email [email protected]

    Hope this helps and good luck for when the offer comes.

    Cheers,
    Keir

    Hi ThatOldGuy,

    Still haven't heard... apologies. I would suggest dropping the admissions tutor an wee email [email protected]

    Also keep your eye on track as I know that the admissions office have been really busy processing offers.

    Cheers,

    Hi Molly227,

    Sorry you haven't heard anything. This is a very competitive course so hang in there and keep your eye on track. Hopefully there will be a decision soon. Our official deadline is March 31st but I hope you will have a decision before then.
