Receiving our decision

When and how you will receive our decision on your application.

You will be notified by email when a decision has been made on your application. 

If you have applied for more than one degree programme you will receive a separate decision for each. 

If you have any questions about the decision, you can contact us using the contact details included with your decision communication. 

How long does it take? 

We strongly encourage you to check your programme details to begin with. This is because many of our postgraduate degree programmes have specific application and decision deadlines, so check each programme page to understand the deadlines.
