How do I apply?
What you need to do next:
- Research suitable university-level courses at the MET (see those aligned to your Level 3 course on pages 11, 12 and 13)
- Discuss your choices with your tutors, who have a wealth of knowledge about the courses available at MET - they can help identify the best options for you
- Investigate all your options for further study at the MET and elsewhere – attend open days if you can
- If you are unsure of your next steps, talk to the College careers team
- Complete your application by the end of December (see online application here). You do not have to do this through UCAS or complete a personal statement – we have put in place a very straightforward application process for you
- Attend an application review meeting with a university centre tutor (more in the next section)
- Wait for your offer/s to be communicated to you
- Accept or decline your offer/s (you can only accept one but will have the others for back up)
- Your place will be confirmed when you get your exam results
Application review meetings
You will not be expected to attend a formal interview to secure your place, but will have to attend a 1:1 application review meeting with a university centre tutor to ensure the course you have applied for is right for you.
You may be asked to bring along a portfolio of your work or perform a short audition. This is to make sure that you have the best chance of succeeding at university-level and so that the tutor can suggest alternative courses that you may be better suited to.
Offers and entry requirements
You must meet the entry requirements for the courses to which you apply to secure your place. The promise we make to you is on condition you complete your Level 3 course and meet any other requirements as set out in your offer conditions.
Therefore, if we offer you a place on the university-level course you apply for, but you don’t pass your Level 3 course, the College has the right to withdraw your offer(s). In addition, please note that some courses will have ‘additional’ entry requirements such as GCSE grades in specific subjects. Please ensure you have understood these before making your applications. You can find more detail about entry requirements on the university-level course pages of the website.
