    Hi there! Congrats on having your application in already! For many of our courses we would be making decisions once the UCAS deadline closes on 15th January, as we would want to assess all applications received on time. It would also depend on the courses you have applied to, as others have higher application : places ratios so there are more applications to assess. Unfortunately submitting earlier doesn't always mean a decision earlier! If you want me to check directly with the Admissions team, you can private message me with your application details and I can check for you.

    hi,
    the radiotherapy course that I have applied for requires an interview, will not find out if I am offered an interview before January 15th?
    Thanks

    As we all process applications differently, you will receive your responses separately too. Universities have until the 31st March to make their decisions, although you are likely to hear before then! As decisions come in, you will be updated on UCAS Track.

    Hi there. The Admissions team will begin making initial selections, however it is likely the notifications will go out from the end of January as they will consider all on-time applications for interview selection. If selected, you would be notified at least 3 weeks prior to the interview date. Best of luck!

    Hi there - We typically have around 35 places on the course each year, however this is dependent on placement allocations so may vary, but typically around 35.
    Best of luck if you are applying this year!

    Hello! We don't have specific 'limits' as such on the courses as there are cross-taught modules so students can be made up from several of our Media areas. We have an overall number of students for the division, but not broken down per subject the same as other courses have (I hope that makes sense!).

    I would also be grateful for information regarding the amount on places you have for your Occupational Therapy course! Also, just wondered as to why it runs for 4 years instead of three like most others?!

    Hey - we typically have 30-35 places on Occupational therapy each year but due to placements this can change slightly. For BTEC, would you mind emailing in to [email protected] or DM and give details of the BTEC you are taking? We can consider BTEC, but would need to check the specific route you are taking against our requirements.
    Thanks,
    Charlotte

    Hi there - we typically have 30-35 places on the course but as mentioned before this can vary each year with placement limitations. In Scotland, all Honours Degree courses are 4 years, allowing you to study a wider breadth of topic in the first two years, then your years 3 and 4 count toward your degree, with the 4th year when you would undertake the dissertation or Honours project. In the rest of the UK, degree courses would be 3 years due to the different way the courses are taught. I hope that helps to explain!

    Hey - as I mentioned before, each of our courses differ in timeframe and some may only make final decisions after the 15th January deadline, so you may have a bit of time to wait I'm afraid! The University will be closed over the Christmas break, so on return it is likely decisions will begin to be submitted but this is a really busy time for Admissions teams. They are processing as quickly as possible, but as you can imagine many students are submitting all at the same time which means it can take a few weeks of selecting before any decisions are made. Patience is appreciated!
