Please note, all communication will be sent to your student email address, which you have provided on your application form.

You will informed of the outcome of your application, which will be one of the following:

- Conditional

​Conditional and reserve offer holders will be given one week to upload documents confirming their eligibility. Please be prompt and accurate in completing this phase.

If you meet the eligibility criteria you will be given a deadline of two weeks to book flights and make associated travel arrangements.

Please make sure you have sufficient funds in place, we are unable to offer extensions to deadlines regardless of the reason.  

There is no flexibility to arrive later than the official arrival date, or depart earlier than the official departure date.


Conditional  - if you receive a conditional offer your application has scored highly, and you are invited to proceed to Phase 1 immediately. Once you complete the Phase 1 and Phase 2, your participation in the programme is confirmed. If you fail to complete any of the required steps, your application will be demoted to Reserve.

Reservewe maintain a reserve list for every programme. In the event that a conditional offer holder drops out, we will offer the available place to a student on the reserve list. Reserve applicants will have met all essential Key Skills and Key Qualities on their application; however, their application will have received a slightly lower score than an applicant who has been offered a conditional place.

Declined - declined applications have, unfortunately, failed to meet the grading criteria. Due to the volume of applications we are unable to provide individual feedback. You are welcome to reapply the following year.

Please note that you are unable to submit an application using a mobile device. Please use a desktop to apply.
