When will I hear about my offer?
Our Diagnostic Radiography BSc(Hons) degree is very popular so to make sure that our admissions process is fair to everyone we operate a staged ‘gathered field’ admissions process – meaning that we consider candidates together to make final decisions.
We aim to give you a decision soon after your interview, however because of the volume and competition for places, sometimes it may be necessary to hold offers until after all interviews have taken place. So, if you don’t hear straight away, please do not worry, as the outcome is being carefully considered by our tutors.
The course will close to new applications on 31 January 2024.
When you apply to Brighton we want to hear about who you are. Grades are never the whole picture; we're interested in things like creativity, resourcefulness, persistence and the capacity to think big and find new ways of doing things. And we recognise that not everyone has the same background. That's why we treat everyone who applies as an individual. We recognise many qualifications and we care about all of your achievements and the experiences you've had that set you apart.
