Admission Policies

Within the University, the Recruitment and Admissions Sub-Committee has ownership for all recruitment, outreach and admissions policies. Chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education) it reports formally to the Academic Quality and Standards Committee.

The University operates a devolved admissions structure with all decisions on applications being made within each of the five faculties in accordance with the single University Regulations and the University Admissions Policy.

The University’s Admissions Policy sets out our aims when recruiting and admitting students, who is responsible for admitting students, our selection and admission criteria and how we assess applications. It also details how we handle applications from students with disabilities or additional support needs including admission with advanced standing, and applicants with a criminal conviction. The Policy outlines how we handle instances of fraud or misleading information in the applications process. Finally, it sets out the University’s complaints process and related University Regulations.

SAA Staff, for further information please refer to the Admissions Policy section of the SAA Workstream SharePoint.
