Francis Close Hall campus

Well done – you’ve completed your UCAS form and your application has been sent to us.

Once we receive your application, we will consider it carefully.

Next steps:

  • If you have applied to a course which requires you to attend an interview or audition as part of the application process, if selected we will send further information regarding this.
  • If you have been successful in achieving an offer from the university for a non-interviewing course you will be invited to an applicant day.

    Whatever our decision you will receive official confirmation from UCAS – so make sure you check your UCAS Track account regularly.

    Interviews or auditions

    Interviews at the University of Gloucestershire are a two way process; it’s as much about you finding out more about your course, meeting with academic staff and current students, becoming more familiar with the University and ensuring we are the right place for you to study, as it is us assessing if you are right for the course.

    If you have applied to study on a course that requires you to attend an interview, you will receive notification of this through UCAS.

    Step 1 – Notification of your interview date

    Once you have applied to us you will be notified of a date for your interview through UCAS track. We will also send you information about preparing for your interview to the email address you confirmed on your application form. If you have not received this information, but have been advised of a date for your interview in UCAS, then please email

    Step 2 – Accept or reschedule your interview

    If you can’t attend the initial date sent to you then you can request a reschedule and the admissions team will advise you of the next available date as soon as possible. You can decline your interview request but please think carefully before doing this; admission for your course will be by interview only and declining to attend an interview will mean we cannot proceed with your admission to the course.

    If you are experiencing problems in accepting your interview/audition date you should notify UCAS immediately.

    Step 3 – Attending your interview

    Make sure you are clear which campus your interview is at. You will have received this information in your communication from us on what to prepare for the day. If you are unsure where your interview will be held and where you should report to, please  contact for clarification.
