myHub and tracking your application
It is important that you access and log in to myHub regularly for information and communication about your application.
myHub is BU's online portal for anyone who has applied to the university. This is where all the details about your application are kept and updated, so you can track the progress of your application as well as communicate with our International Admissions Team.
The login details to your myHub account are sent to you via email soon after your application has been received. If you cannot remember your login details, contact our IT Service Desk on +44 (0)1202 965515 or via the IT Services website. You will need to provide your 7-digit student ID which can be found in your offer letter.
Meeting the conditions of your offer
If you receive a Conditional offer, the offer letter sent to you via email or UCAS highlights the conditions you have to meet in order to be accepted on your course. Refer to your offer letter or check your account on myHub, and make sure you let us know as soon as you have met the conditions by emailing our International Admissions Team, IAT@bournemouth.ac.uk. Always add your 7-digit student reference number to the subject line of your email.
Accepting your offer
All offer holders:
To accept your offer and secure your place on the course, you must firmly accept your offer on UCAS or log in to your account on myHub if you directly applied to BU.
International offer holders:
The deadline to accept your offer will depend on when you received all the decisions from the universities you applied for. Most students will fall into one of the categories below:
- If you receive all your universities decisions by 19 May 2022, you must reply to any offers by 9 June 2022, or they'll be declined
- If you receive all your universities decisions by 14 July 2022, you must reply to any offers by 21 July 2022, or they’ll be declined
- This may still be subject to change, so please check for more information on key dates by visting the UCAS website.
It is important to know that you won’t be able to confirm your accommodation with BU until you have firmly accepted your offer. We advise you to book accommodation as early as possible in order to improve your chances of selecting the room that best suits your needs.
Uploading all the requested documents to myHub
After you accept your offer, the next step is making sure you clear all the pending actions on your account in myHub. This could be any or all of the following:
- A legible copy of a valid passport
- Copy of your final certificate (original and/or translation)
- Copy of your final transcripts (original and/or translation)
- Copy of IELTS certificate, or equivalent English language qualification (if applicable)
- Academic and/or professional references
- Personal statement
- Confirmation of any previous UK study
- Copy of any previous UK visas
A list of pending actions can be seen in your offer letter.
CAS and Tier 4 (General) Student Visa application
The Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) is a document you will need in order to apply for your Student Route Visa. This is issued by the university to the applicant.
We start issuing CAS six months before the start of the course. This will be from April for applicants starting in September.
To ensure you obtain your CAS in time for your visa application, your offer must be Unconditional and firmly accepted by you. You must also clear all pending actions on your account in myHub.
