Once you’ve submitted your UCAS Postgraduate application, course providers will review your details and decide if they're going to make you an offer.

Check your dashboard — your application status will have updated to ‘Awaiting decision’

  • You can find your Personal ID on your dashboard. You’ll need this, in case you have any queries about your application.
  • Your application will be sent to your chosen course providers online.
  • You can check the status of each application separately on your dashboard.

The course providers will then consider your application

  • Your chosen providers will consider your application independently ,and decide if they're going to offer you a place.
  • You may have to attend an interview as part of the selection process.
  • If you're offered a place, you may need to meet certain conditions.
  • There are no set deadlines for providers to respond to your application, so response times can vary.
  • You will receive an email if a course provider makes a change to the course you've applied for.

Check your dashboard to view university decisions

  • When a course provider records their decision through UCAS Postgraduate, we'll inform you by email.
  • Sign in to your dashboard to view the decision. If you have an offer, you'll need to reply online.
  • After you've accepted a place, contact the provider about any matters relating to your course.
  • We're not involved in selecting students. Course providers make their own decisions – if you'd like feedback, please contact them directly.
