All applications (UCAS or those made via the University of Suffolk website) are sent to the Admissions Team. When we receive your application we will send you an email confirming we have it, and to provide your individual log-in details for the Applicant Area so you can review and manage the status of your application.
Every application is reviewed on an individual basis to check that we have all of the information needed to make a decision. If we think details are missing such as qualification information or references, or we have a question about something Admissions will contact you directly by phone or email (so it is important that you keep us up to date with any changes). The Admissions Team will liaise with the Admissions Tutors for your chosen course and upload a decision as quickly as possible. If an interview is required we will send you an email invitation, otherwise we will upload any decision to UCAS if you have applied for full-time undergraduate study, or to the Applicant Area for part-time or postgraduate study.
Make sure you check the Applicant Area on a regular basis for updates to your application, as well as information about accommodation, finance and induction closer to the start of your course.
Individuals who apply to the University of Suffolk during the normal application cycle (before the end of June each year) will be given secure access to our Applicant Area. Login details will be sent by email upon receipt of application.
This area is a dedicated area for applicants and those interested in applying and allows you to track your application, respond to interview invitations, respond to offers (part-time and postgraduate), apply for bursaries and accommodation. Keep up-to-date with important dates relating to applications, finance etc on the Announcements and chat (Applicants only) in a secure environment with other University of Suffolk applicants, you'd be surprised at the number of people wanting to introduce themselves before courses start, some course groups even arrange meet ups.
You can also reading lists and find out how Learning Services can support you during your studies.
Once you have applied and received an offer from us, you will be invited to an Open Day. At this visit, you will receive detailed information about your course, and will be able to find out more about accommodation, student finance and the University of Suffolk experience.
It is important to visit us while making your decision if you can. If you are unable to attend an Open Day, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to organise an individual visit.
Selection Days and Portfolio Reviews
