What Happens Next

1. Once you apply online, we will send you an email so you know we have received your application.

2. If you are new to UCM, you will be asked to attend an Information Sharing Appointment (ISA) when you find out more about UCM and the course you've applied for, and we find out more about you.After your ISA, we will either:

* make you an unconditional offer (i.e. a definite place on the course);

* make you a conditional offer (i.e. a place on the course IF you get the results required in the summer exams);

* place you on a waiting list, if the course is already full (if this is the case, we will also advise you to apply for another course, just in case);

* suggest you apply for another course because the one you have applied for is not suitable for you.

Once you have a place, you will be asked in to enrol in person.
