If you have been declined following an interview
Thank you to all the candidates who attended our selection days. Well done for being offered an interview!
Please read your offer carefully as although you may have been declined for Diagnostic Radiography, the university may well make you an alternative offer for a different course.
The number of applicants we have received for number of vacancies has been overwhelming and the quality of the applications has been high.
Selection for a place on the course was dependent on the number of available places. We had limited places to offer so difficult choices had to be made.
Selection was made by reviewing multiple factors including;
- Written work;
- Individual interviews;
- Original applications, including your education profile
- Personal statement
Following the selection day, compared to other candidates, those that were not offered a place were less able to convince the panel of their suitability to enter the Diagnostic Radiography course on this occasion.
Some of the offers that will be made are conditional. Should offers be declined, or if conditions are not met, we will be reviewing all those who attended interview and may be making offers at a later date.
All subsequent offers are made on reconsideration of all interviewees.
