The Student Room February Roundup

From scholarships to Post-application Visit Days, here’s the roundup of some of the most frequently asked questions in February.




We offer a range of generous scholarships and fee discounts, but which do you actually have to apply for? Here’s what you need to know:

Applications for Promise Scholarships are now open. To apply you will need to submit a Stage 1 application form by 6 May 2016. If you are successful you will be invited to complete the second stage of the application: a personal statement from you, supported by a teacher/tutor reference.

You don’t need to apply for the Opportunity Scholarships and Access Scholarships as they will be automatically awarded to eligible students who have been income assessed by Student Finance England or equivalent assessing body.

Some subject specific scholarships have applications and some don’t, so we suggest looking into the application form of the scholarship you’re interested in as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.

Lastly, applications for Sports Scholarships are now open until 5th October 2016. Fill out an Online Sports Scholarship Application Form to apply!

Computer Science Post-Application Visit Day


Computer Science

Worried about your post-application visit day interview? Don’t be! The interview for Computer Science is very informal. Applicants will mainly be asked about their UCAS application and are expected to dress casually. So don’t worry!

Your interview performance will not affect the level of your offer but if you’d like to get some feedback you can contact them on and I’m sure they’d be happy to help.

Fine Art Interview

Fine Art


Portfolios are being reviewed and interview requests are currently being sent out. The Fine Art admissions team will be sending interviews out throughout February and interviews are being scheduled up to the end of March so there’s still plenty of time!

If you haven’t heard back yet it means your portfolio is still being reviewed and your application is under consideration. Most applicants will hear back by the end of February or the start of March.
