What happens to your application?

Once you have sent off your UCAS form to apply to your chosen universities...what happens next?

This is a rough guide of what to expect. For more detailed information visit www.ucas.com or if you want more information about your application to Bangor, contact us at admissions@bangor.ac.uk (quoting your UCAS number)

  • Once you've sent your application, you'll receive a Welcome letter from UCAS
  • Track button appears when you log into your application form on line. This allows you to keep an eye on the progress of your application 24 hours a day.
  • Once we have made a decision, you will hear from the University. You will also be able to check the status of your application on UCAS track. Take a look here for more information about what happens after you've applied.
  • Once all your choices have made a decision about your application, you will receive a Replying Offers letter -this will list your conditional and unconditional offers and you have an individual reply date.
  • Decision time - make a Firm Acceptance, Insurance Acceptance and Decline the others.
  • If you reject all offers or no offers are made, you go into Extra which allows you to apply to other courses individually


  • The Clearing system opens on results day and gives those who have not met entry requirements or have not secured a place the opportunity to contact universities.

What happens next with applying for Halls of Residence?

  • After you've accepted a place at Bangor, you will receive accommodation information directing you to our Accommodation website to make an on line application to choose your room in late May/early June.
  • Please go online to make the application as soon as you are invited to choose your room. The University will only guarantee that there will be a room available if you make your choice by 31 July. If you wait until after your A level results to make an application we may not be able to find you a room.
  • When you have chosen your room you will see your legal contract and be asked to make a pre-payment of £300 to secure the booking. You will then know where you will be living when you come to the University.
