All current students: please continue to check your university email for updates from us.

I need to complete an admissions interview/assessments – will this go ahead?

Yes. Whilst our buildings are currently closed, we are able to interview and assess you online. Our team will be in contact with you to arrange this.

To complete your interview/assessment online:

  • You will require access to a laptop or PC with sound and microphone as well as a webcam (built-in or standalone)
  • Your assessment can be taken from home
  • Some agents may also have these facilities that you can access at their offices

PLEASE NOTE: Once our campuses reopen, you will be required to bring any original copies of your previous qualifications in for our Admissions Team to verify.  You will be asked to present your original qualification(s) and photo ID. Failure to present them will result in you being withdrawn from your course.

If you would like to find out more information, to book an assessment or to find out the status of your assessment with us, please contact home.enquiries@qa.com or call +44 (0)20 3925 6393.

My course is due to start in June – will it?

QA Higher Education has two primary objectives during this rapidly evolving period regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19). The first is to ensure the welfare of its learners and staff, and the second is to ensure continuity and access to learning.

In line with the sector as a whole and its response to Covid-19, if necessary, we will implement online enrolment and teaching for your programme to allow you to begin your studies this June.

As circumstances allow, we will review this decision with a view to bringing programmes back to face-to-face classroom tuition at the earliest appropriate time for your studies, taking into account government and medical guidance at the time.

I’m not currently in the UK and worried I won’t be able to travel to the UK in time for the start of my programme – will I lose my place?

We are continuing to monitor the situation. If you are worried about arriving late due to travel restrictions, please let us know as soon as possible and one of our team will contact you directly.

Students will have the option to enrol and commence studies online.

To contact us to discuss your specific situation, please call +44 (0)20 3925 6393.

Are you still processing applications?

Our Admissions Teams are working remotely and continue to accept and process applications as usual. Due to the high volume of applications and enquiries we are still receiving, there may be a slight delay.

Student Finance England Funding:

Will tuition fee and maintenance loans be processed and paid as normal?

Generally yes. The Student Loan Company are continuing to pay maintenance and tuition fee loans in the amounts students expected, based on their previous assessment. Student Finance England however reserve the right to request further evidence to support claims for funding at any time.

Will my tuition fee allocation change as a result in my programme moving to online learning?
Tuition fee payments will not alter as a result of changes in delivery, as the course is deemed to be completed based on the original course intention.

Can I still talk to someone to find out about your courses and how to apply?

Yes, of course!

Our team are still on hand to help, whether you want to know more about the course, teaching, the city, entry requirements or any other questions about studying with us. All you need to do is call on +44 (0)20 3925 6393 or complete our enquiry form, and we’ll call you back to talk through with you.
