Application Frequently Asked Questions
Applying for university can be a confusing time. So at the AECC we are trying to make it easier by answering some of the frequently asked questions from applicants.
How do I apply for September 2017 entry?
We do accept deferred applications and applicants must meet the conditions of their offer in the same academic cycle as which they apply in.
Do you accept deferred applications?
Depending on the information provided in your application, we may contact you to request further items such as course information provided by the relevant education institution, or a transcript of your grades to assist us in making an accurate assessment.
Am I required to send any futher information in addition to my UCAS application?
Is there an interview?
For applicants looking to start on or after September 2017, you will need to successfully pass an interview to be offered a place at the AECC. If your application passes the initial assessment stage, you will be formally invited to book onto one of our Applicant Visit days. Interviews are held in a small group format and normally conducted by two members of AECC faculty staff and will last around 30-40 minutes. UCAS give some guidance as to how to prepare for an interview, which can be found on the UCAS website. If you are selected for an interview, we will update your UCAS Track and send you an official email invitation with further instructions..
Why does the AECC ask for a reference from a chiropractor?
A reference from a current, practicing chiropractor is a non-academic requirement that must be met by all students. Obtaining one of these demonstrates insight into the course and chiropractic as a profession and will evidence that you have spent time in a chiropractic setting observing a chiropractor. Applicants can either send this to us themselves or can ask their referee to send it directly to email@example.com.
Do I need to apply for both year 0 and year 1 entry points?
You only need to select one entry point on your UCAS application. If you apply and we would like to make you an offer, we can amend the point of entry to the most appropriate one when the offer is made. Please apply to the entry point that you feel is most suited to your achieved/predicted grades and when updating our decision, we can amend this if necessary. Please do not use two of your UCAS choices with different entry points as it is not necessary.
Do the AECC take into account previous study of degree-level programmes?
We acknowledge that some students may apply with qualifications that are of a higher level than our advertised minimum academic entry criteria. This applies to those applicants who have studied at other institutions at undergraduate or postgraduate level. For those students, the AECC will consider these qualifications on an individual basis and we will likely ask you to send a scanned copy of your transcripts and module lists to help us assess your application.
How will I know if my application has been successful or not?
Once a decision has been made, we will update your UCAS Track and send you an email confirming our decision. Applicants who are holding conditional offers must meet the stated conditions of their offer by the 31st August 2017.
