UCAS Track and Key Dates

When you’ve made your application to Coventry University through UCAS, you’ll need to wait to see the decision made by the university. It can take up to 10 days for the university to receive the application, the Admissions Officers will then look over and assess your application and it may be sent to the faculty to make the final decision. 

When a decision has been made you will receive an email from UCAS notifying you that one of your choices has changed on UCAS Track. You’ll then be able to view whether you have received a Conditional/Unconditional offer or been unsuccessful. 

Many of our courses invite applicants to an interview, audition or portfolio review, this will be done via e-mail. This is your chance to meet the course tutors and find out more about the University and course as well as being your time to shine. Our tutors want you to do well at interview and are interested in finding out about your ways of working and why you are interested in your chosen subject. Each subject is looking for different things from you so your invite to interview will contain more detailed information of what you can expect from the day and anything you will need to prepare.
