Application FAQs


The process


We like to get to know our students and we want you to get to know us too.

Subject to minimum requirements, your child will be invited to attend an interview here at the University College, which takes place between November through to March.

Group interviews are led by a senior member of admissions or academic staff and last around 35-40 minutes. Your child will get the chance to ask questions and to meet other potential students. We aim to tell you the outcome of the interview within five working days.

In exceptional circumstances, Skype interviews are available if your child is unable to attend, for example if you live abroad.



Results Day

Once you have sent your application and visited us for an interview, then we may offer your child an unconditional or conditional place on one of our courses.

Unconditional: We look forward to welcoming your child in September.

Conditional: Receiving their results will be an important time. We hope they secure the grades that we have asked for.

If your child’s grades are not what they required, please don’t worry. Encourage them to get in contact with our Admissions team to discuss their options and any queries.


If your child is successful and we have confirmed their place, then congratulations! Their efforts have been well-deserved and, from September, they will join the AECC University College to start their university journey. 

School visits and UCAS days

Our student ambassadors regularly attend schools and UCAS exhibitions to talk about the courses we offer, the students own experiences, the facilities available and the mixed methods of learning at AECC University College.  

Student Services

We can provide your child with help and advice on any aspect of student life with Student Services, NUS qualified representatives and our own staff members. Details on our academic assistance, pastoral care, counselling, welfare and support are available on our student services page.
