After you apply
Tracking your application
When UWE Bristol receives your application from the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), we’ll email you with an acknowledgement. We’ll also send login details so you can set up your personal UWE Welcome website.
The website allows you to track your application with UWE Bristol, and enables us to communicate with you throughout the process.
Remember to login regularly to check the latest updates. Set firstname.lastname@example.org as a ‘trusted’ email source, to ensure they’re not overlooked.
You can also monitor your application progress, and reply to your offers, using UCAS Track.
Considering your application
We will carefully consider your application and aim to notify you of a decision, or an update, within 14 days.
Look out for one the following messages that you’ll typically receive on your UWE Welcome website:
- Making you an offer. If we are able to make you an offer, this will be updated both on your UWE Welcome website and UCAS Track. UWE makes offers based on the UCAS Tariff.
- Further information request. We may require further information from you in order to make a decision on your application, this will be requested through the UWE Welcome website.
- Interview invite. You may be sent an invitation to attend an interview or selection event. This will be communicated through the UWE Welcome website and will include all the information you’ll need to prepare for the day. We aim to give you as much notice about an interview date as possible. Please note, information concerning interviews will only be viewable on the UWE Welcome website, and not UCAS Track.
- Portfolio submissions. Some courses require the submission of a portfolio of work. This will be requested by means of an e-portfolio facility within the UWE Welcome website. In general, you should always include your sketchbooks, notebooks, storyboards, contact sheets and process work. We're interested in the research, development and motivation behind your ideas, as much as the final outcome.
