Applying for Readmission

Applying for Readmission

Readmission Policy

For full details on the process of applying for readmission, please see the current Readmission Policy.

Please submit any readmission application form via email 

Undergraduate Students (including PGDE students)

If you wish to return to study at the University you do not apply through UCAS but should apply directly to the University by completing a readmission form.

Deadlines for application

If you wish to return to study at the beginning of the academic year, in September, this form must be returned to the University no later than 15 July.

If you wish to return to study for the second half-session of study, which starts in January, the form must be returned to the University no later than 15 November.

Forms submitted after these dates will not normally be considered.

PGDE students must have had readmission agreed upon withdrawal and are not eligible to apply through this readmission process.

What happens once I have applied?

Once we receive your form, it is sent to the relevant Admissions Selector for consideration, and we will notify you of their decision by email. The length of time it takes to process your application will depend on the time of year it is submitted.

If you receive an offer of readmission, we will send you an acceptance slip which you need to return to the University within a specified timeframe to secure your place. Your joining instructions will be sent to you shortly before the start of teaching.

You will be contacted by your School to offer support before your arrival and you should also feel free to engage with your existing contacts. If you have previously been supported by the Disability Team, you are encouraged to contact them as soon as possible.

Postgraduate Taught Students

If you did not complete your taught postgraduate programme and wish to return to your studies, you can apply for readmission. Please submit a readmission form to your Programme Coordinator.

Deadlines for application

  • 30 June if returning at the beginning of the academic year (September)
  • 31 October if returning for the second semester (January)
  • 31 March if returning for the summer semester

Please note; we cannot guarantee that your application will be considered if you apply late.

What happens once I have applied?

Your Programme Coordinator will consider your application and, if approved, they will send it to the Head of School  for final approval. If you receive a readmission offer, we will email you and ask that you confirm within two weeks whether you accept the offer. Please remember to contact your School for the date and time of registration. You can then complete the relevant registration steps.

International Students

If you are hoping to return to study on a Tier 4 visa your readmission will be conditional on whether the University can sponsor you based on current UK government Visa & Immigration (UKVI) rules.
