Health and Social Care Mini Open Day

If you haven’t quite made up your mind which Health and Social Care course is right for you and would like to visit BU to find out more, we’ll be holding a Mini Open Day at our Lansdowne Campus on Wednesday 13 February. You’ll have the opportunity to attend a fees and accommodation presentation and ask those all important questions, take a guided tour of the campus and meet staff and students to get a real feel for life at BU. You can register to come along online here.


Late Applications

Don’t forget it’s not too late to apply, we’re still accepting applications for the majority of our courses. Our Head of Admissions, Karen Pichlmann has posted a really useful blog on the UCAS website to help guide you through the application process. As always please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here at askBU we’re on hand to help, no question is a silly question.


I’ve missed something out!

If you have missed something off from your UCAS application then don’t panic, you just need to let us know as soon as possible so we can add it to your application. What you’ll need to do is contact us via email with the details of the update (include any scanned documents if you have them) plus your UCAS number then we can pass this information on to the relevant Programme Administrator for the course to amend your application.

How long do I have to wait before I get a decision?

We know the waiting can be horrible so we will always aim to give you a decision as soon as we can, the process of going through applications can take a little time though. If you applied before the January 15th deadline then Universities should aim to inform all applicants the outcome of their application by the 31st of March, you then have until the 8th of May to make a decision on your offers. It’s worth having a look on the UCAS website as they have a really helpful page with important dates to keep in mind, definitely consider putting a few of them in your diary!

Student finance

UK students will be able to apply for student finance, e.g. tuition fee and maintenance loan from February onwards. You don’t need to have accepted your university/course choice and should make sure you apply sooner rather than later to make sure you get your finance sorted in good time. Take a look at the Student Finance ‘When and how to apply’ document for details. In fact, Student Finance England have produced lots of useful resources to help you better understand how to apply and what you will be entitled to. We suggest you take a look at some of these resources in detail so you know exactly what to do. You can even use their calculator to work out what you may be entitled to. Alternatively, please let us know if you have any questions!
