How the AFIAH application process works

The process for AFIAH applicants to apply to the University is very similar to a standard application, with a few extra steps added. This ensures we adhere to the Covenant. 

Step 1

Ex-military personnel who would like to apply to study one of our Allied Health courses, should contact the course’s Admissions Team.

Step 2

Every AFIAH applicant is offered an advisory consultation with relevant Admissions staff. This will enable us to signpost them to one of four 4 options:

  1. The applicant already meets our standard entry criteria, therefore they continue to apply through UCAS in the normal way
  2. The applicant needs to undertake more academic qualifications to meet the criteria
  3. The course is not right for them 
  4. The applicant has evidence of serious study, along with transferable skills or work experience, and are a mature applicant. 

Applicants meeting the criteria in option 4 should state “AFIAH Project Applicant” at the beginning of their UCAS personal statement. This will ensure that their application is correctly allocated to the course admissions tutor and no AFIAH candidate is missed.

Once this stage is complete the applicant will then fall in line and have the same equal opportunities as all other applicants via selection and Multi Mini Interview (MMI).
