After you apply

How long will it take?

We appreciate that this is an anxious and exciting time, and we'll try to give you a decision as quickly as possible. However in high-demand subject areas, we may hold applications from suitably qualified candidates until we have received and considered all applications submitted by the 26 January deadline – this is to ensure all applications received by the deadline are given equal consideration.   

For these subject areas a decision may take a bit longer, but all decisions on applications submitted by 26 January UCAS deadline will be made by 19 May. If you submitted your application after 26 January, you will receive a decision by 14 July.

Disclosure Scotland

If your offer is for a place on a course that involves working with children or vulnerable adults, you'll be asked to join the Disclosure Scotland Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme before you start the course.

UCAS will tell you if you need to join the PVG scheme when you make your application.
