Once you have submitted your application through UCAS, they will begin to process your application. If they require any additional information they will contact you directly. 

UCAS will send you a welcome letter - this should arrive within one week of submitting your application if you live in the UK, and around three weeks after submitting your application if you live outside of the UK. Check the details carefully and if anything is incorrect, contact UCAS.

Once your application has been processed, we can begin assessing and considering it against the specific entry requirements for the course you’ve applied for. 

When you apply through UCAS, you will need to set up a unique username and password, which you can use to track the progress of your application. We'd encourage you to use your personal email address rather than a school/college one to ensure any important emails about your application get through to you. You can change your email address in the 'Profile' section of your UCAS Hub account. You can log in to your UCAS Hub here. We may also contact you via email and myHub to request additional information needed to help us make a decision so please regularly check these for updates.
