COVID-19 update

If you’re planning on applying to university this year, we understand you may have questions following school closures, cancelled exams and the impact this may have on your application. We are following advice from UCAS, the government and exam boards and reviewing what this means for our admissions processes. We are coming up with the best way forward for applicants and offer holders.

We are currently working on the basis that the autumn term will be operating as normal. However, we’re continually monitoring government guidance and planning for alternatives. Please see our Coronavirus FAQs for further information.
