Normally you should expect to hear the outcome of your interview within a few days, however, some of the faculties prefer to conclude the interview process before making a final decision on who will be getting a place on the course.
Yes, we will ask you to accept your place on the course once an offer has been made to you.
If you do not accept it within the stated time frame, your place may be given to another applicant.
If you are unable to accept the interview on your Admissions account please contact the admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0300 555 8080.
A conditional offer is made when the faculty would like you to achieve a condition before a definite place can be made. This could be achieving certain exam results, suitable references, etc. Once you have the evidence you have met the condition you should submit this to us as soon as possible to allow us to convert your offer to a definite place.
An unconditional offer is a definite place on the course with no conditions to meet.
If you have been offered a place on the early reserve list, this means that a decision on your interview will not be reached until all the interviews for the course have concluded.
If you have been given a place on the reserve list, this means that you were successful at interview but all available places are currently taken.
If a place becomes available on the course we will contact you to offer either a conditional or unconditional place.
If you have attended an interview and have been unsuccessful in gaining a place we will let you know.
You can discuss the reasons for this with our student advisers on 0300 555 8080 who will be able to offer guidance.
