    Hi! I'm a mature student (22 years old) applying for Bachelor in Creative Writing.
    I just completed my Diploma programme very recently. I will be graduating and receiving my Diploma certificate on November 2017.
    That means I will have to wait for 2 years if I am to apply with the Diploma certificate...

    Is it possible to apply for the universities with Diploma Transcript and Completion Letter issues by my university instead?

    I have sent my applications but none of the universities provide me any perspective yet.
    I also applied for Netherlands University which they have dismissed me as my Dip. certificate won't be obtained when the course has started...

    This is really killing me! Any feedback is appreciated, just not the ridiculous ones. ;D

    Which diploma are you currently studying? Most applicants don't hold certificates before starting their course (A level students would get their certificates in the November/December after starting their degree) - admission is based on proof of the qualification in the form of transcripts or confirmation from the exam boards/school/college concerned.

    If you're taking an Access to HE Diploma and have completed then that shouldn't cause any problems with UK universities - although it wont hurt to ring them up and clarify what proof they would require.

    Thank you! I wrote to them as you suggested but I still haven't receive a reply. Hopefully they won't mind.
