    How to Apply

    I have an offer from Harper Adams - what happens next?

    If you receive an offer from us, congratulations!

    Please make sure you take the time to read through the conditions of your offer as well as any important documents that are attached. You will receive information regarding terms and conditions as well as fees and charges for your course. Additionally if you have work experience conditions, there may be other forms you will need to complete and return as part of your offer.

    You will need to wait until you have heard from all of your chosen universities before you are able to make your firm and insurance choices. UCAS  will tell you the date by which you need to make a decision. You will need to keep an eye on this date to allow yourself plenty of time to make the right decision for you.

    It is very important when you consider which offer to choose as “Firm” that you opt for a choice which you feel you can achieve and is at an institution that you really want to go to.

    You may find that you get some very attractive offers which may be from an institution that you were not originally considering to be your Firm or Insurance choice. If this happens do not be swayed by the offer alone -  it is important that you take your time to consider all of your offers. If you need to, don’t be afraid to ask to revisit institutions or give them a call to ask additional questions.

    We highly value those applicants who have chosen us as their Firm choice institution and once we receive your examination results, we will try to ensure that you are on the course of your choice or an alternative that would lead onto it .

    If you have any concerns or questions regarding an offer that you have received from us, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Team. This is especially important if there is a part of your offer which you don't understand or you believe has been made in error as it may be difficult to rectify this at results time.

    Offer Holder Days

    All offer holders will get an invitation to come along to one of our dedicated Offer Holder days in the Spring term. These events are more in depth than an Open Day and will give you the opportunity to really explore the campus and the course you have an offer for.  You'll get to see the course facilities, meet staff and our fabulous student ambassadors who can really tell you what life is like as a Harper student!  You'll also getthe opportunity to meet other applicants just like you and to have a go at some course activities. Make sure to be quick to sign up when you get your invitation!

    First of all - THANK YOU - we really appreciate you picking us! We will keep in contact with you throughout the rest of the application cycle and you should expect to hear from course tutors, members of the Events team and our fantastic student ambassadors.

    We will contact all applicants who have chosen us as their firm choice from late Spring onwards with information about how to apply for accommodation and student finance,  and we will also send you a link to our joining instructions so you can begin to get ready to start your studies with us.

    As most of our communication is via email it is important to let us know if your contact details change. If you made your application using a school or college email address, we strongly advise that you change it to a personal one as soon as possible so you can still access your messages once the term ends.
