Offers of places

Since we receive more applications than we can accept, submission of an application is not a guarantee of acceptance.

We have a dedicated Immigration Team to help you with any immigration advice you should need. They offer workshops, drop-in sessions, individual appointments, email advice and we also host a series of immigration webchats throughout the year. You can contact them by emailing They usually reply within two working days.
