We base our offers on the information you provided in your application.

We will try to reply to you as soon as possible. You should receive a response within four weeks (research programmes) or three weeks (taught courses).

If you applied online, you can track the progress of your application. Otherwise you can contact us.

Some programmes have interviews (face-to-face or telephone) as part of their application process. We only make offers to those who perform well at this interview stage.

For some of our programmes you have to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your place. Your tuition fees are then adjusted to reflect what you have paid.

These are made to applicants who have applied before receiving the exam results for their degree or, for international students, their English language programme.

These are made to applicants who have already met the entry criteria for their chosen postgraduate course and submitted relevant documentation in their application.

If you receive an offer, you have time to consider whether you want to accept or decline it.

Normally there is no specific deadline for replying. It is best to reply as soon as possible to reserve your place.

Replying quickly will enable you to make other arrangements like organising accommodation and applying for funding.

Once you accept your offer, we will assume that you will be coming to Newcastle to study. We will send you further information so that you can start making arrangements.

Your acceptance is not binding and you can change your mind. If you accept an offer and then choose to study elsewhere, let us know immediately. We can then make that place available to someone else.

If you accept an unconditional offer, you will receive a Confirmation of a Place letter.

If you accept a conditional offer, we issue the letter once you have met the conditions of the offer.

International students also receive a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). This is the visa letter that is a crucial part of your visa application.
