UCAS will let you know via UCAS Track whether or not the universities you've applied to have offered you a place.
If we offer you a place, we will also send you an email or letter with details of our Getting Ready website, which covers the next steps you need to take. So it's important to make sure we have your correct contact details. You can update these on UCAS Track if they have changed.
Visit the UCAS website for full information.
If we make you an offer, we'll invite you to an Open Day if you haven't already had an interview.
If we make you a conditional offer you must fulfil certain criteria before you can be accepted on to the course.
We will make you an unconditional offer if we are happy you have already satisfied the criteria and can attend the course.
