Results

After you've applied you might need to wait until you receive your exam results before we can confirm your place.

How we get your results

Many exam results are sent to us from UCAS directly, so you don't need to send us copies. You can check UCAS to see which exam results they receive.

If your results are not provided to the University by UCAS you will need to upload a copy of your official certificate or transcript via the online application service.

If you are not able to upload a copy of your results, you can email, post or fax them to using the contact details below. Please don't send us original documents in case they get lost in the post.

Nominating someone to act on your behalf

The University is bound by the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 in terms of safeguarding personal information. The University will not discuss your application with anyone unless you have given written permission for the University to do so.

You can authorise someone to respond to our requests for information, submit correspondence and make decisions, for example accommodation preferences, on your behalf. This can be particularly useful if gap year travel is planned. Details should be sent in writing to admissions.
