Feedback on Applications

Before the annual application deadline of 15 October we are more than happy to talk to potential applicants, their teachers and their parents about the application process, in order to advise them on course and college choice.

However, once applications have arrived, we will then only be able to communicate with the applicants concerned.

Once decisions have been made, we can provide feedback on unsuccessful applications if we receive a request before 31 January 2020.

If you have given permission (in the Admissions Confidentiality and Feedback form you submitted when you applied) for feedback to be supplied to your UCAS referee, please ask them to contact the College Admissions Office. We prefer to send feedback to applicants’ schools or colleges, because we feel that teachers are best placed to put the information in context. If you are no longer at school or college, we are happy to send feedback to you directly – please write to us and ask for this.

You can request feedback on unsuccessful applications by completing the Feedback Request form.  Please note that we do not accept feedback requests by email.

We regret that, due to GDPR, we are unable to engage in any discussion with parents, unless we have the written permission of the applicants concerned. In the case of formal complaints, we follow the University’s complaints procedure. Copies are available on request.
