Your Offer Checklist
Now you've got an offer to study with us as an international student, here's what to do next. Follow our step-by-step advice and you will soon be confirming your place at NTU.
Understanding your offer
There are some steps that you need to take before we can confirm your place and we encourage you to take action as soon as you can.
As an international student, you are most likely to get a conditional offer. Here's the difference:
- Conditional: This means that you must meet some requirements before you can be officially accepted on to the course. An example of this would be demonstrating that you have achieved the required grades in your qualifications.
- Unconditional: This means we are satisfied that you've already met all the entry requirements, and that we can accept you on to the course with no further requirements.
Whether your offer is conditional or unconditional, we encourage you to accept your offer within four weeks of receiving it. You can then complete steps to meet your conditions where necessary and confirm your place at NTU in plenty of time. Any updates are shown on the NTU Applicant Portal or UCAS Hub (depending on how you applied). You can check the status of your application at any time on these.
Check your email regularly for our messages. We'll contact you on the email you used in your application if we require any further information to support your application. Please follow the advice in the checklist below.
1. Accepting your offer
If you've applied directly to us (postgraduate courses or single undergraduate applications) you can view and accept your offer on the NTU Applicant Portal.
If you've applied through UCAS, you can view your offer on your UCAS Hub. When you've received decisions from all the universities you've applied to, you should reply to these offers by selecting a Firm (first) and Insurance (second) choice. You then need to decline the other offers.
2. Upload your documents
If you applied to us directly, please upload your supporting documents to our NTU Applicant Portal using the 'my documents' screen.
If you applied through UCAS, please upload your documents through our Ask NTU online form.
3. If you have English language as a condition of your offer...
You can take action to meet any English language condition of your offer by doing one of the following:
- Upload an English language test certificate at the appropriate grade to the NTU Applicant Portal, or to the Ask NTU online form (if you've applied through UCAS). We accept a variety of tests including IELTS, Pearson, Oxford, LanguageCert and country qualifications.
- Successfully complete our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (PEAP) course at the required grade. PEAP is an excellent preparation course for academic study at the University. PEAP 语言课程的教学目标
4. Make your advanced payment
As an international student you'll be required to make an advanced payment of £3,000 to the University towards your tuition fees.
You can make your advanced payment through Convera or through our online store.
For more information on making secure international payments to the University, please visit our how to pay web page.
5. Prepare for your visa application
If you’re applying for a visa you’ll need to plan carefully, it can take longer than you think!
For example, for a Student visa, one of the things you’ll need to do is show that you have enough money, and you’ll need to save this money in a bank account for at least 28 days before you apply.
You can get lots of advice from our expert international student support team on applying for your visa.
