Offer of a place

What happens when we receive your application?

With all applicants we take a number of factors into account when we decide whether or not to make an offer of a place.

  • We rely heavily on your completed application and, in particular, the information you have included in the personal statement. When completing the personal statement, you should always check the programme entry in the prospectus to see what specific requirements are needed.
  • We check to make sure that you are taking the right subjects for the programme you have applied for.
  • Finally, we read the comments your referee has made about you.

Applicants for BA/BSc Joint/Combined Honours subjects

There are over 30 subjects available within the Joint/Combined Honours Scheme at the Canterbury Campus. There are also a number of Joint/Combined programmes at our Broadstairs campus. The majority of subjects make a decision as to whether to offer a place based on the application form, with the one exception of Music. However, we reserve the right to interview applicants where we feel this would benefit both the University and the applicant.

Once the decision is taken, the University contacts UCAS and they let you know the outcome of your application. We will write to those candidates offered a place, inviting them to visit us to meet academic staff and have a student-led tour of the campus.

If you've selected Music, your application form is checked to make sure that you have met our entry requirements and then you are invited to visit. You will see in each programme entry what we look for when you are invited for interview.

At the interview, you will also get the opportunity to meet academic staff and have a student-led tour of the campus. The decision to offer you a place is made via UCAS and you should normally expect to hear from them within two weeks of your visit.

Applicants for Single Honours programmes

For a number of Single Honours programmes you will find the selection criteria within the programme entry. This includes the degrees in Art, Diagnostic Radiography, Midwifery, Music, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Primary Education, Film, Radio and Television Studies, and Social Work.

The other Single Honours degrees within this prospectus - except for History and Geography - decide whether to make an offer of a place based on the application form. The University reserves the right to interview applicants for any subject where we feel this would benefit both the institution and the applicant.

Once the decision is taken, we contact UCAS and they let you know about the outcome of your application.

We will write to those candidates offered a place inviting them to visit to meet academic staff and have a student-led tour of the campus.

If you have selected History or Geography, your application form is checked to ensure that you have met our entry requirements. If successful, you are invited for an interview and to visit the University.

The decision to offer a place is made via UCAS and you should normally expect to hear from them within two weeks of your visit, unless informed otherwise.

The aim of the interview is twofold. Firstly, members of the academic staff will want to explore your motivations for choosing the subject and, secondly, to give you the opportunity to meet academic staff and question them about the programme and the University. You will also be offered a student-led tour of the campus.
