What happens after I apply through UCAS?
Information on what happens after you apply through UCAS can be found on the UCAS website.
After submitting your UCAS application it's important that you check the 'Your choice' section of your UCAS application. This is where you'll be notified of our decision on whether or not to offer you a place to study at Bangor University.
If we do make you an offer to study here, we will send you relevant information and instructions directly to the email address you've provided on your UCAS application form - so please check your inbox regularly and let UCAS know of any changes to your email address.
Once you have applied to study at Bangor University, UCAS will forward your application to us. You’ll be notified when we have received your application and we will make a decision on whether or not we can offer you a place. You can track this in the ‘Your choices’ section of your UCAS application.
If you're offered a place here, you’ll be given a Conditional or Unconditional offer.
Conditional means you’ll need to meet the conditions that we set – usually by gaining certain grades in your exams.
Unconditional means you’ve already met the conditions we ask for.
If we've made you an offer to study here, you'll be invited to attend an Offer Holder Day. Even if you have previously attended an Open Day here, you'll benefit from coming to an Offer Holder Day as it will give you a different, more tailored experience. You'll have the opportunity to attend a subject taster session and gain detailed insight into your chosen subject area.
Once all your chosen universities have made their decisions, UCAS will contact you with a deadline date for your decision. You must chose one university offer as your Firm Choice, and one as your Insurance Choice and Decline all other offers. You should check the 'Your choices’ section of your UCAS application and mark your decisions there. You’re usually given around four weeks to think things over and make your decision.
What is a Firm Choice?
Your Firm Choice university should be the one you most want to attend. By making this your Firm Choice, you’re saying that you agree to study here as long as you meet the conditions of your offer.
What does Insurance Choice mean?
Your Insurance Choice is your back-up university, so if you miss out on the grades for your Firm Choice, you should hopefully have met the conditions of the Insurance Choice university. When choosing an Insurance Choice it’s wise to make sure that you’re confident you can meet those conditions. Don’t choose a university that’s asking for similar conditions as your Firm Choice.
There is support available to help meet the costs of studying for an undergraduate degree - the exact financial support available to you will depend on which part of the UK you are from.
We also offer a range of Scholarships and Bursaries to new students.
All UK/Ireland applicants who have Bangor University as their Firm Choice are guaranteed a room for the first year of your undergraduate degree, as long as you're based at the Bangor campus, your course starts in September and you apply before the deadline. We'll email you when it's time to apply and you will be able to select the room you want to live in through our online booking system.
Confirmation of your place to study here will be confirmed by UCAS. For September entry, we will email you in August with information about the student registration process, arrival and welcome week activities.
