    How long does it usually take for BCU to respond to an application? I applied over a month ago and this is the only university I am waiting on a response from.
    Many thanks
    I'm waiting on a response too. From what I can tell, everyone is. Maybe they just haven't gotten round to it yet

    Hello!
    I have applied for the course Radiotherapy and have an interview on Monday!
    I was wondering what to expect from the day, also do we have an admission test?

    Thanks!
    Hi abifa1,

    Well done on getting an interview! We can't give too much away about the interview itself as so not give people an unfair advantage, but there's some useful videos on our website here with tips on how to prepare for it.

    I hope that helps, and good luck! :goodluck:

    Hi wrightyy00,

    I know a few of you are still waiting to hear about your application which can be a nerve wracking time, but its quite normal at this stage. As you can imagine we have a lot of applications to process. I've asked our admissions team what the average turn around time is to see if we can give you an idea of when you might hear back, so I'll let you all know as soon as I can.

    In the meantime, try not to worry and let us know if have any other questions!

    Thanks!

    Hi hashim1999,

    Are you applying for your foundation with us or wanted to study here once you've completed you foundation?
    It's difficult to say exactly how long it can can take for an offer, admissions will work through the applications we get in the order they come in. When did you apply?

    Thanks,

    Marketing (Advertising & Public Relations).

    What are you most looking forward to about uni?
    Trying new things, meeting new people and being a bit more independent.

    What are you most nervous about?
    I'm not really sure, nothing comes to mind.

    Are you coming to an Open Day?
    No but I did the tour online and I'll be coming to an applicant taster day!

    I was just wondering is anyone else signed up to go to one of the taster days as well? If yes, I look forward to hopefully seeing you there!

    I think either works, so long as it's readable. I took a photo with a CamScanner app. Good luck! 😁

    I was only asked for english and maths so I don't really know but if you're unsure, it's probably best to send them all.

    Hi!

    Congratulations on your offer!
    I'm not sure exactly how many people are on that course each year or what the timetable would look like, but I'll try find out for you!
    In terms of when the course starts, you'll be contacted with your start date a lot nearer the time, but it's usually around the third week of September, with Welcome Week (freshers) starting the week before that.

    Hey. My name is Joy. I’m from London & I want to study Children’s Nursing and would love BCU to give me a place. I’m looking forward to my accommodation at Belgrave View as it has music practice rooms which I can rehearse on the piano since it’s my passion, and now that I won’t be studying music like in the past it’ll be a great way to use my free time. I’m not nervous but would love to know people before joining as it’ll not make me a ‘lost sheep’. I already went to the open day and loved every bit of it

    ps I’d love to keep in touch with anyone wanting to join BCU. 😊

    Bcu has offered me either a digital portfolio review or an Applicant's Day portfolio interview in February. I was just wondering if I'm likely to be made an offer if I go for the interview or if it's best to send it off via email to make sure I get an offer earlier.

    Hey electramoon,

    Tutors won't preference one over the other so it's really just down to your choice. If it's a lot easier for you to submit your portfolio online then you have the option to do so, otherwise if you'd like to visit the University and meet tutors and others who might be on the course that's available too.

    Good luck!
