We will normally invite you for an interview/group assessment within 4 weeks of receiving your application. You should then be notified about the outcome within 4 weeks of of the interview. In some cases, our decision may take slightly longer, for example if we have to discuss your application with external agencies (where your course involves a placement).
If you are unable to attend for the first interview/group assessment date provided, then this may increase the length of time you have to wait for a decision on your application to be made.
There are several types of offers – Conditional, Unconditional, Reserve List Conditional and Reserve List Unconditional (explanations of these are on “My application status has changed but I don’t know what it means” pages). When you receive an offer, the status of your application will change to show this and the Accept Offer and Reject Offer links will show on the Online Applications Home Page.
You must reply to an Offer as soon as possible, either by accepting it or rejecting it (see below).
Follow the link in the email we have sent you or log into your account on your Online Applications Home Page you will see the Accept Offer and Reject Offer options next to the course(s) for which an offer has been made to you. To accept, click on Accept Offer. To reject, click on Reject Offer.
Please note that once you reject an offer the application and offer are cancelled for this course and you will have to contact us if you change your mind. An offer can only be re-instated if there are still places available on the course.
You can accept as many Conditional Offers as you like – this will not affect the status of your other applications.
You can only accept ONE unconditional Offer. Once you ACCEPT an Unconditional offer, any other full-time applications you have will be CANCELLED and removed from the system. If you have applied for other courses and do not yet know the outcome of these applications, you may wish to wait until you hear about these other courses. If you are happy to ACCEPT this offer and cancel the other applications, please select YES. If you want to wait until the result of any other applications are known, then please select NO and make your decision once you have the outcome of all applications.
The course is full and we cannot offer you a place at this time. You have been placed on the reserve/waiting list. If a place becomes available for your chosen course, we will change your offer to conditional or unconditional offer.
Once you accept your offer of a place, your place on the course has been reserved for you.
