    Hey 2017 applicants,

    If you're still in the process of making your application why not check out our tips on writing a Personal Statement, plus some key UCAS dates to keep in your diary.

    If you have any questions about the process, what happens next or about the course you've already applied for, ask away!

    If you have applied, welcome to the start of your BCU journey! Why not let us know what course you're hoping to study?

    For QTS yes. They used to do a previous course where you were not a qualified teacher at the end of it, and that didn't require gcse science at grade C but they have since scrapped that course in favor of the QTS one.

    Hi there,

    You don't have to interview for our social science courses. Which course in particular are you interested in? If select the 'Entry requirements' tab on the course page you'll find exactly what requirements you need to meet for the course.

    I'm applying for: Biomedical sciences - Bsc (Hons) - New course for 2017/18
    I received an email saying theyve received my application, then gave me that admissions portal link. I just wanted to know roughly when most people get offers. Do they have to wait towards the end of application time or do they hand it out as applications come in?

    I want to do biomedical science and the BCU course is not currently accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences which means I would not be able to work in the NHS with my degree, only in companies

    Good luck to all of you who have applied!

    Offers can be given out before the deadline so you might not have to wait that long to hear back, but as you can imagine, we have a lot of applications to look through. If you have any questions in the meantime, ask away!

    Why not let us know what you're most looking forward to if you join us to study? Or whether you'll be moving from your home town to come to Birmingham? We can help with lots of fun things to do here!

    Good luck!
    The BCU Team
