What happens next?
Awaiting a decision
Once you have submitted your UCAS application, you should receive acknowledgement of this from UCAS. Once UCAS has sent the application to us we will consider it carefully.
All applications received are considered in accordance with the Wrexham Glyndŵr Admissions Policy.
Admissions tutors will consider your whole application, not just your results or predicted results, so this will include the information given in your personal statement and your reference.
Receiving an offer
If you’ve applied to UCAS by January 15, universities have until May 5 to make a decision so don’t worry if you don’t hear anything straight away. If you’ve applied after the deadline your response may come later.
If you want to view the progress of your application this can be done online through UCAS Track.
When you receive a response from us there are three possible outcomes:
- You will receive a conditional offer
- You will receive an unconditional offer
- Your choice will be unsuccessful and you will be rejected
Receiving a conditional offer is good news – this means you will have your place confirmed if you are able to meet certain conditions. For most people, this means waiting until results day to see if you have achieved the specified grades.
Great news – the place is yours if you want it. An unconditional offer means that you have already achieved the entry requirements, however it’s worth checking where there is anything else you need to do; for example, some courses may require you to get a DBS check or register with certain professional bodies.
If you are still waiting to take your exams, your results won’t affect your place. However, they could still affect you in the future when applying for jobs so it’s important to take this into consideration.
An unsuccessful application is shown as a Reject on your UCAS Track and usually means that you haven’t met the entry requirements and have not been offered a place.. A reason will normally be given as to why your application has been rejected, however if not, you can call our admissions team who will be happy to discuss this with you.
In a small number of cases, it is possible that a course may be withdrawn by the University. If this is the case we will write to you as soon as possible and let you know what your options are.
For most courses, you won’t need to attend an interview before receiving an offer as the decision will be based upon your application. However in some circumstances the university will require you to attend an interview before a decision can be made. This will be specified in the course information.
Once you have received an offer from us, you may receive an invitation to an offer-holder day.
These are designed to help you make your final decision and will give you an opportunity to:
- View the teaching facilities
- Meet current staff members who may be teaching you
- Meet current students on your chosen course
- Take a look around campus and the local area
- View accommodation options
Replying to your offers
If you have been given an offer from Wrexham Glyndŵr University, it is up to you to confirm your place. You’ll be able to do this once you’ve received all of your offer back from all of the universities you have applied to.
If you have received a conditional offer, the place is yours as long as you meet the conditions of your offer. If you select a conditional offer as your Firm choice, then you’ll also be able to pick an Insurance choice; you should think of this as a back-up in case you don’t meet the conditions of your Firm choice, so avoid selecting an offer with higher offer conditions than your Firm choice.
If you’re a UCAS applicant, make sure that you reply to your offers by the date that UCAS gives you; check your UCAS Track for this information.
If you’re a direct applicant, then you can confirm your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org including your Student ID (this will be on your offer letter).
Starting at a later stage of a course?
If you already hold qualifications or experience which is equivalent to modules on the Wrexham Glyndŵr University programme you have applied for, you can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning/ Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPL/RPEL).
This will exempt you from re-taking modules that you have already done. The amount of exemption you can apply for can range from an individual module to up to a maximum of two-thirds of the programme’s entire total credit volume.
For more information about RPL/RPEL, see below.
