Talking to us

Be prepared to talk about your qualifications and grades including GCSEs. Ask questions; Admissions tutors want you to find out as much as you can to make sure it is the right course for you.

Having a copy of your personal statement in front of you, as a reminder to why you wanted to study a specific subject in the first place, is useful.

Step 3 - Getting your decision
