Completing your Application Form
The completion of the form is a means of conveying information about yourself, your potential and your motivation. You may continue on an additional sheet if necessary and attach it to your completed form.
Education and Training
This is a very important section and it is important that you do not overlook anything relating to your study background. 'Qualifications' includes not only O and A Levels, CSE and GCSEs, HNDs and Degrees, it also includes Access courses at Colleges of Further Education, Open University credits and any vocational and in-service qualifications.
If you have any doubt about the relevance of a qualification, include it. Include all courses whether passed or failed. If the latter, indicate the elements you did pass (if any). Admissions tutors have the discretion to waive 'normal' entry requirements if satisfied otherwise as to your potential and motivation.
Motivation and Experience
For people seeking to undertake a programme, motivation is as important a quality as past academic attainment.
The nature and variety of your personal interests may give some idea to the admissions tutor as to your motivation and the suitability of the programme for you.
You may, for example, have considerable personal experience in voluntary work or concentrate your reading in some relevant specialist area.
You will also, presumably, have considered at some length why you wish to do this programme and how it will be of value to you in terms of personal or career development. Please include any such information.
If you have visited the university or already spoken to a member of staff about the programme you are applying for, please include this information.
Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form
The information requested in section 10 is required for statistical purposes only. You do not need to complete it if you do not wish to.
However, the development of the equal opportunities policy of the university will be assisted by the availability of relevant data.
If you have any disability or medical condition which may mean that you need special arrangements for your studies, please contact our Disability Support Team (Tel: 0191 515 2933), before completing the application form to ensure that the facilities you need will be available.
You are required to state whether or not you have any criminal convictions, excluding motoring offences for which a fine and/or up to three penalty points were imposed. Please tick either the 'Yes' or 'No' box in Section 9 of the application form to indicate your situation.
If you tick the 'Yes' box, you may be required to provide details of any convictions to the institutions to which you have applied. Please note if you do not tick either box in Section 9 your application form will not be processed.
Data Protection Act 1998
The university will need to create and maintain computer and paper records relating to the personal data of its students, both during their programme of study and after leaving university.
This information may also include sensitive personal data. All such data will be held and used by the university in compliance with the data protection principles laid down by the Data Protection Act, 1998, and in accordance with the university's registration/notification recorded with the Information Commissioner.
This data is required for academic and administrative purposes connected with students' studies and career at the university; it may be used in order to fulfil the university's obligation to return data to the government and its funding and other agencies, such as the Higher Education Statistics Agency, and to bodies such as the Student Loans Company, local education authorities in connection with grant, loan and other bursary administration, or in order to provide references to employers and other organisations, or to confirm the validity of qualifications awarded by university; it should also be noted that, in accordance with tradition, in many cases examination results are published openly within this university.
By applying to enrol on a course of study with the university, students consent to the processing of personal data in the way described above and also in terms of the right to privacy under the Human Rights Act, 1998.
Students who wish to see copies of their personal data held by the university should apply in writing to the university's data protection officer. There is a small statutory charge for this service.
