Applications for September 2019
The deadline for applications for September 2019 entry has passed and all applicants should have now been contacted regarding the outcome of their application.
Information for Offer Holders
If you currently hold a Conditional Offer to study with us in September, you are invited to come into school on Thursday 22nd August between 9am – 2pm, in order to confirm your place and begin the enrolment process. Please bring a copy of your GCSE Results (including any exams sat in previous years) so that we can confirm that you have met the conditions of your offer.
If you wish to make any changes to the subjects listed on your application, you will be able to discuss this with staff on the day.
If you are unable to visit us in person for any reason on 22nd August, you should contact us ASAP via firstname.lastname@example.org in order to make suitable arrangements for confirmation of your place. This is very important as failure to notify us before 2pm on 22nd August may result in your offer being withdrawn.
Information for students in our Applicant Pool
If you have met our Entry Requirements and wish for us to consider your application, please visit the school between 9am – 2pm on Thursday 22nd August with a copy of your GCSE results.
Once our Offer Holder deadline passes at 2pm, we will then be able to begin processing applications and will contact students within 24 hours to confirm whether we are able to make an offer.
Looking to submit a Late Application?
We do not operate a waiting list for places in our Sixth Form, however, a limited number of spaces may become available once our existing offers have been processed. If you missed the January deadline but would like to be considered for a place in September 2019, please see our step-by-step guide to making a late application.
Step 1: Choose your A-Level subjects
Our academic curriculum is based on the core facilitating subjects that top universities look for and here at the University of Birmingham School, our students will typically choose three of these to study at A-Level.
Tip: It might also be worth considering whether there is a subject you would consider as a reserve (just in case one of your first choices is oversubscribed)
Step 2: Check our Entry Requirements
To be eligible for a place, all students will need a minimum of 5 GCSE’s at Grade 5 or above, plus will need to meet any Subject-Specific Requirements for their chosen A-level courses.
Plus, if a subject receives more applications than places, we may apply our Oversubscription Criteria for that specific course.
Step 3: Visit us on Results Day
The school will be open for on the day applications between 9am – 2pm on Thursday 22nd August.
During these times, you will need to come along to school in person, bringing a copy of your GCSE results (including any qualifications that you may already have) so that staff can take a look. Providing you meet our entry requirements, we will then be able to hold your details in our Applicant Pool for consideration.
Step 4: Fingers crossed!
Once the deadline for our existing Offer Holders passes at 2pm, we will begin to understand which subjects may still have places available.
We will then begin to process the applications in our Applicant Pool and will aim to contact all students within 24 hours to confirm whether we can make you an offer.
