After you've submitted your application online through UCAS, the University will consider the information provided and whether a place on your chosen course can be offered. There are two types of offers:

Conditional: The offer is subject to you completing and passing various exams or providing proof of your qualifications.

Unconditional: You've already achieved, and provided evidence of, the necessary qualifications to meet our entry requirements. Visit our unconditional offers page to learn more.

Following our decision, we'll notify you via email or letter and the decision will also be visible through UCAS Track. We may also invite you to attend an open day to learn more about the course you've chosen.

If you're affected by a learning difficulty, medical condition or any other disability, you should notify us. More information can be found on our disability support page.

We'll also assess your fee status criteria to find out if you need to pay home or international fees. Forms and other information can be found on our fee status criteria page.

Some courses may require a DBS (formerly CRB) check. For more information, see our DBS page.

Confirming your place

UCAS will send results directly to Southampton Solent University for A-levels and BTECs taken in that year only - any other results you've obtained previously need to be confirmed with certified copies of qualifications. 

On results day, check your UCAS Track to see if you've been offered a place. This will depend on the results you get but if you do not meet our standard entry requirements as stated in the conditions of your offer, you may still be considered for the course you have applied for once we have received all applicant results. If you have received an offer, well done and we look forward to seeing you when you enrol at Solent. If you haven't received an offer, please see our Clearing information.
