Sue Gemmill Head of Admissions

2 ADMISSIONS AT BRUNEL Admissions Tutors in academic Schools set entry criteria Centralised Admissions Office makes decisions based on entry criteria All correspondence with applicants comes from Admissions Office Offers sent out by Online tracking facility via portal - MyApps Agents’ portal being planned Admissions Tutors per subject area Any queries on whether someone is eligible should come to Admissions. If you use your address on the application, need to pass information on to applicants. During August, better if student changes to their own address to get information on Registration Details of how to access MyApps is given in the offer letter

Standard offers for all courses Transparent entry criteria on course pages of the web Offers made to all those who meet or who are likely to meet entry criteria Invitation to visit Brunel once offer made (UG) or virtual Open Day available on web Loyalty rewarded for UG applicants No point in submitting an application if applicant is unlikely to meet entry criteria. International students can come to the campus when it suits them and we will try to arrange a campus tour.

One centralised office dealing with all applications regardless of fee status Same office deals with fee assessment Larger admissions teams dealing with specific subject areas – 4 teams Separate team dealing with course enquiries within Brunel Admissions Office move mid-March. Will take time to see the improvements, as training of all staff takes place.
