Your application once it’s submitted

​​​Application arrives at University of Gloucestershire

At the University of Gloucestershire, the Admissions Team are the first point of contact. First, they will send a notification to say that the application has been received. An Admissions Officer then assesses the application (your qualifications, personal statement and reference).

1. If an offer can be made based on the agreed entry criteria, then it is sent to you at this stage. Alternatively, if the course applied for requires an interview, you are invited to the next available interview day.

2. If entry criteria is unclear or below our requirements then it is sent to the course leader for review – this is when the reference and personal statement become key.

Interview slots become full quite quickly, so the earlier you apply, the sooner we can schedule your interview.

Interviews can be an exciting and nerve-racking experience, so we have put together some handy guides to help you prepare for the day and give you more information about what to expect.

What happens next?

Once we have received your application (and you have attended an interview if required), we will make one of the following decisions…

  • Conditional – you will be accepted if you meet specific grades for your qualifications

  • Unconditional – you are accepted (subject to meeting our general entry requirements)

  • Unsuccessful / withdrawn – we are unable to offer you a place.

UCAS Extra​

If you’ve used all five choices on your initial application and you’re not holding any offers, you can use this free service from UCAS to find a place at university. If you meet the criteria, you can add another choice from 25 February. You can keep adding choices until you secure a university place, but you can only have one choice being considered at a time.

If you’re eligible to use the service, ‘Add an Extra choice’ will appear in the ‘Your Choices’ section of Track​.UCAS Extra closes on 4 July.
