    Hi! I was just wondering if you could confirm that for people with conditional offers would be allocated accommodation places after their grades are confirmed/changed on the system?

    Hi Jessrabbitxo,

    Hopefully the below will help with your query:

    "If you do not live in Birmingham and have accepted an offer on a full-time course at Birmingham City University, you are guaranteed a room in our halls of residence during your first year of study, provided you have applied to study here by the deadline.
    If you apply through Clearing or choose Birmingham City University as your insurance choice you are not guaranteed a place but we will endeavour to offer you accommodation for your first year of study. Our decision depends upon the location of your permanent home in relation to Birmingham and applications are dealt with on a first come, first served basis. If you live in Birmingham, you will be made an offer of accommodation subject to availability.When you apply to us, please quote your University application number (student ID), which is given to you in the heading of your offer email. That number will not be recognised by the accommodation application system until you have first accepted your offer in UCAS Track, and then waited for between 24 and 48 hours while our systems update from UCAS. Once you have accepted your offer in UCAS Track, please keep trying to complete the application form until your student number is recognised.If we are unable to offer you University accommodation, we will help you find alternative accommodation in the private sector."Let us know if you would like more information, you can also contact the accommodation team directly as they can track individual applications

    Hi there,

    On different Facebook pages for freshers many people are mentioning emails about having their portal details and having to upload evidence of qualification. I haven't received anything myself, any ideas on why that could be?

    Thanks

    Hi Jodie,

    This could depend on their course. If the conversations are about your course and you're worried you have missed an email or want to enquire if this is relevant to you, then it might be worth giving your School's admission office a call or perhaps drop them an email. You can find the contact details here.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi, is there a particular Business course you are enquiring about? If you have any concerns or would like any advice then you can always drop our Course Enquiries Team a line on 0121 331 5595.

    If you do decide to give them a call, you'll be put through to a friendly adviser who can offer advice about entry requirements and the qualifications you need to apply for our courses.

    We hope that helps!

    Hey,

    We suggest that photocopying your certificates and results to upload onto the portal would be the best way. But any problems- just drop us a line

    All the best!

    Hi Hutton97,

    I would give the accommodation team a call on 0121 331 5191/5192 if you haven't heard back from them already. The lines may be busy but keep trying, alternatively you can drop them an email on [email protected]

    Hope that helps!

    Hello!Sorry for the delay in responding. Timetables change every year so there's no guarantee that this year will be similar to the last but you should be receiving your timetables via email either before or during welcome week #BringOnBCU
