FAQs

FAQs – Home/EU students

In light of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and with the safety of our staff, students and visitors in mind, we have taken the decision to cancel all our scheduled undergraduate and postgraduate on-campus events and instead run online events which you will be able to join from any location.

Complete the Call BackForm and a member of the team will contact you shortly.
Alternatively, talk with someone using live chat. If you require more information, please email study@uel.ac.uk

How do I choose the right course for me?

Selecting a course is vital. Our Applicant Relations team is available on email at study@uel.ac.uk to provide support if you are unsure about a course being right for you. Alternatively you can send an enquiry to our Information Advice and Guidance team.

What information should I gather before applying?

Before you make your application make sure you have the following ready:

  1. Personal Statement

    Personal statements are very important as it gives you the opportunity to write your motives for wanting to study the course of your choice. For assistance on writing your supporting statement click here or speak to our Information Advice and Guidance team.

  2. Information on your qualification/s

    You will need to confirm level of qualification/s, awarding body and grade. Please note, we require a copy of your qualifications at the point of application and we may request to see the hard copy when you enrol. For certificates which may have been misplaced or lost, it would be a good idea to request replacement, so you have them ready for enrolment.

  3. References

    For your application we require at least one reference. Your referee can be either your tutors or employers. Please note we cannot accept references from family members, or friends.

  4. English Language

    If your undergraduate degree is not from the UK, we may require evidence of a satisfactory English Language qualification or test.

 

 

When should I submit my application?

We strongly encourage you to apply as early as possible. This is especially true for courses that have assessments through portfolios, interviews or auditions. Late application may mean that we have no further assessment dates available.

We cannot guarantee that we will be able to process applications for January entry received the week before the first day of teaching.

How do I apply?

Applications for either full time or part time courses should be made via the UEL website here.

How much does it cost to apply?

There is no application fee.

How will my application be assessed?

All applications will be assessed based on your academic profile, personal statement, and reference. You must meet the entry requirements for the course you are applying for. For some courses you will be required to attend an interview and/or present a portfolio as part of the application process.

Once we have assessed your application, we may require further documents in order for us to make an assessment. We will contact you via email if this is the case and request that you upload them via the Applicant Portal – we will give you a link to access the portal.

How long will it take to get a decision?

We aim to come back to you regarding your application within 10 working days, however for courses that require interviews it may take slightly longer.
