Once your UCAS application has been received, we’ll assess your suitability for the course. If you clearly meet the entry criteria for the course you’ve chosen, we’ll offer you a place.

We’ll be in touch to let you know as soon as we have made you an offer. You can also see your SAE offer on UCAS Track.


This means we are waiting to receive further information from you such as your exam results and/or certificates.


You have demonstrated your suitability for the course and don’t need to supply any additional information.


Simply go to UCAS Track and accept your offer online.

If you have not yet applied through UCAS please do so as soon as possible. The on time deadline for UCAS applications is 15 January. Although you may apply through UCAS at any time during the year, meeting this deadline will mean you are more likely to be successful with your application, especially where space is limited.
