been listed on an application form as applications are assessed
holistically and offers made based on ALL your qualifications.
Notably, the University has minimum requirements of
GCSE's and level 3 qualifications and these need to be
confirmed as well.
qualifications can be done through the following methods:
UCAS verified qualifications for results gained in the year of
- Production of original certificates
- Notification directly from the awarding body, school or college
exams officer to firstname.lastname@example.org or by
post, including the name and application ID number of the
applicant. We recommend you use recorded delivery if posting
certificates and we will return all certificates by the same
method the next working day.
We cannot accept
photocopies of original certificates or results slips which say
'This is not a certificate' at the bottom, such as:
DBS and Medicals
These need to be completed and returned by the deadline given in
your offer. Failure to return completed forms before the deadline
may lead to your place being withdrawn.
