What happens next?
Upon receipt of an application, the admissions team has 40 working days to provide applicants with a decision. During this period, your application will progress through three stages:
- Stage 1: Initial assessment
- Stage 2: Applicants who are deemed suitable are invited to attend an interview with our academic team
- Stage 3: Interviewees receive our final decision on UTT track
Each application is considered individually and careful consideration is given to all information on your UTT form, particularly your personal statement, reference and the qualifications you have taken or are taking. In most cases, a decision to make an offer can be based on this information alone.
