How does the admissions process work?
- If you have received a conditional offer from UCAS for a course and decide to keep
this offer as your firm choice (CF) then:
- If you meet (or exceed)
the conditions of your offer you will automatically receive
confirmation from UCAS that you have been admitted to the course.
- If you exceed the conditions of your offer you might
have achieved the entry grades for a higher level course.
If this is the case you may receive a Change-Course Offer
(CCO). As an example, you might be made a CCO if you were
holding an offer to study the
BSc Hons Computing – Integrated Foundation Year but
you had the entry grades for the BSc Hons Computing with DIS.
You are under no obligation to accept a CCO and you can simply
ask to be returned to your original choice. Feel free to contact
us if there is anything at all that you need advice on.
- If you fall marginally short of the conditions
you may still gain entry to the course but this will be subject to availability
of places. We will endeavour to confirm our decision as soon as possible
after your results become available. However, you are advised to refer
to section (iv) following.
- If you fall well short of the conditions set,
it will be unlikely that you will be offered a place on this course but
if you have achieved the entry grades for a lower level course you
may receive a change-course offer (CCO). As an example, you might be
made a CCO if you were holding an offer to study the
BSc (Hons) Computing with DIS but you had the entry grades for the
BSc Hons Computing – Integrated Foundation Year.
If we are unable to make you an offer we would be pleased to arrange
to meet with you to discuss your options with us so that you might
be able to successfully reapply in the following academic year.
- If you have received a conditional offer from UCAS for this course and decide to
keep this offer as your insurance choice (CI) then the University/course that you
held as CF has 'first-option' to decide how to handle your application. Your
application will only pass to us if:
- Your CF University/course decide not to offer you a place (by issuing a
rejection through UCAS); or
- You arrange for the University/course of your CF to consent to your release.
If your application to your first choice (CF) course fails for whatever reason,
your current CI choice changes status and becomes your new CF choice. All of
the comments contained in part (a) apply.
IMPORTANT: Please inform us of your results as soon as you receive them.
