  • Sending us your exam results.

    Informing us of your results.

    We require proof that students being admitted to the University have achieved the qualifications upon which the offer of a place was based. If UCAS has provided us with your results there is nothing you need to do. However, if you have supplied your results yourself, you should expect to have to present the original paper copies of your transcripts/certificates when you come to register at the University.

    If you narrowly fail to satisfy the academic conditions of our offer, we may still be able to confirm your place. This will depend on whether we have any places left on the course you have applied for and whether we believe you are sufficiently prepared for the course.
