How can my students make their application stand out?

The applications that your students make to the University are carefully reviewed by our admissions team, the personal statement is one of the main ways that students can stand out from other applicants.

If you would like us to visit you to deliver a personal statement session for your students, then please contact us.

 

Do you run conferences for careers advisers and teachers?

Yes we do – we run one on campus which covers a wide range of subject areas, designed to provide you with a bit more information about the University.

We also run one in London with the University of Birmingham, this is a slightly smaller event but provides you with an overview of the higher education landscape and further information about course areas.
