Applicants and Enquirers

Below you will find information for the following groups.

- Northumbria Applicants – General Information

- Applicants whose examinations have been cancelled/affected

- Information for New and Prospective Applicants

Northumbria Applicants

We are aware that you will have many questions about your recent application to Northumbria. You will find below a list of useful FAQs.  

I have been asked for documents but I cannot access them as my institution is closed

We understand that institution closures may mean that you cannot provide the requested information. If you are experiencing difficulties, please use the contact us button on the applicant portal and the team will advise you directly on next steps.

I am unable to book an English Test due to Test Centre Closures?

We are aware that many applicants are unable to book tests. Northumbria accepts a wide variety of English tests and exemptions that may be an alternative. If you have any specific queries relating to evidence of English language, please contact us directly via the contact us button on the applicant portal

Covid-19 updates for English Language Tests can be found on the links below.

IELTS

PTE

TOEFL

Trinity College London

Cambridge

 

I have been invited to an interview - will this be affected?

We have already made alternative arrangements for interviews in March and April and many are still going ahead virtually. You will receive an email and phone call if your interview has been affected. All interviews beyond April will now also be conducted virtually.  Applicant Services will contact you with alternative arrangements.  Any travel costs will be reimbursed if Northumbria has cancelled an on-campus interview due to Covid-19.

I may not be able to arrive by the start of the programme; can I arrive late?

At present our start dates for programmes remain unchanged, we are monitoring the situation daily and will update this page regularly. If you are due to start a course in March or April and are worried about arriving late due to travel restrictions, then please use the contact us button on your applicant portal and the team will get in touch with you directly.

If I pay my deposit and am unable to attend will it be refunded?

Our standard deposit refund policy, which can be found in the Terms and Conditions of your Offer continues to apply and we will of course refund your deposit in those scenarios. In addition, if you are adversely affected by Covid-19, which impacts your ability to meet the conditions of your offer or your entry to the UK due to travel restrictions, we will also refund your deposit and discuss possible deferral options with you. 

Applicants Whose Examinations Have Been Cancelled/Affected

We are aware that many exams have been cancelled or may be affected. We will be providing information for all affected applicants as information becomes available.  

Undergraduate applicants (UK examinations)

My exams have been cancelled. What next?

The government is developing a process for all students who are no longer able to sit their final qualifications, to allow them to receive a grade in the summer of 2020 without sitting exams. These grades will be recognised by all universities (including Northumbria) as equally valid to those we have received in previous years. The exact detail of this process is yet to be confirmed but is likely to include consideration of academic performance from previous years, and teacher assessments. When we receive these results, assuming you meet the terms of your offer, you will be confirmed at Northumbria in line with our usual processes and practices.

Northumbria University typically makes offers based on UCAS tariff points rather than grades and we accept all Level 3 qualifications that attract tariff points. 

Please refer to the UCAS Tariff calculator to work out what tariff points your qualifications attract. 

Please check the UCAS web page or government guidance for updated information related to exams.

What if the grade I am awarded is not a fair reflection of my performance?

Northumbria will be as flexible as it possibly can in supporting its future students. As we understand it, students will have an opportunity to appeal against the grade awarded, and will be given the chance to take their final exams in the next academic year when it is expected that schools and colleges will be open and running as usual.

Is anything changing about my offer? Will you be waiving any of my conditions?

We have a duty of care to you to ensure that you are properly prepared to study at undergraduate level at Northumbria. We are aware that some universities have been waiving academic conditions in light of the cancellation of A Level exams and changing offers from conditional to unconditional. We do not believe that this is in the interest of supporting freedom of student choice, and that it places unfair pressure on students, at what is already a highly unpredictable and stressful time. In line with UCAS, OfS and OFQUAL recommendations, Northumbria will be waiting for the approved grades to be released and will then follow standard UCAS processes.

NU Entry Scheme

Any applicants who are part of our NU Entry scheme for September 2020, we can confirm that the scheme is running as normal and we will continue to accept these for entry.

New and Prospective Applicants

Information for those considering Northumbria for their studies.

Will it take longer to process my application?

We are processing applications as normal, although there may be a slight delay due to the high volume of applications and enquiries at this time.

We continue to welcome applications. You can apply for courses starting in September 2020 and January 2021. We will keep in contact with you throughout your application journey and make sure you have relevant information and are notified of any updates to your application.

I wanted to talk to you at a UCAS fair but the one in my area has been cancelled. How do I ask my questions?

We are very sorry not to have met you at your local UCAS fair. However, we are still here to support you and answer any questions you may have. If you email bc.studentrecruitment@northumbria.ac.uk with your name, which fair you were due to attend, and a phone number to contact you on, one of our Graduate Ambassador’s will be in touch with you as soon as possible

I was planning on attending your open day in June. Will this be going ahead?

We are currently reviewing all our future events in light of the current climate and we will update this information as and when any alternative arrangements are confirmed. 

I want to find out more about Northumbria to help me decide if you are the right place for me. How do I do this?

We may not be able to welcome you face to face to our campus in Northumbria, but we are still here to welcome you virtually! Our virtual open day is in development and will launch shortly with a range of exciting new information to help you decide if Northumbria is the place for you. In addition, we are running extra specialist Live Chat sessions through our website, and we will be running a series of live events to showcase our fantastic courses and our brilliant staff. We will be in touch with you regularly to highlight all of the opportunities to find out more to help you make an informed choice. We are also ready and waiting for any questions you might have about studying at Northumbria – please do get in touch! We would love to hear from you. Please note that as we are running the majority of our services through team members working from home, there may be a delay on some our responses. Finally, our website is the best and most up to date source of information on all things Northumbria – so please check back regularly for updates on the university, your course and information to help you make your decision.
