Fast Track
Who’s it for…..
Students currently studying on the final year of an HNC,
HND or Foundation degree at a University of Greenwich
campus or Partner College
What is it….
These students are eligible to progress onto Top-up / Final
Year Degree programmes at UoG or Partner Colleges
without having to go through the full application process
•
Direct enquiries to [email protected]
Fast Track
Closing Programmes which are FULL
• Student target numbers are set at University and
School/College level as well as programme level
• If you wish to close a programme as you have achieved
your target number discuss this with your Dean of
School in case other programmes in the School have
under recruited.
• If the Faculty Operating Officer wishes to close a
programme they should contact the Director or
Recruitment & Admissions to see how this fits into the
university-wide targets
Home or Overseas??
All applicants are Fee Assessed
Either from the application form or
Fee Assessment Form
Many different things to be taken into consideration, big 3 they need to
meet to be considered Home
-
Must have 3 years residence in UK/EU
Not been here for Education purposes
Settled with no restrictions on stay and freedom to move in and out
of the country
Fee Status Can’t Change?
There are a limited number of places for Home-fee paying
students.
If an applicant is assessed (from the Fee Assessment Form
that they complete) as being liable for fees at the
‘Overseas’ rate and later submits additional information that
shows that they are eligible for fees at the ‘Home’ rate, it is
not guaranteed that they will have a place at the ‘Home’
rate.
If the university has already met its ‘Home’ student
numbers the offer may be withdrawn, a place offered for
next year or they take up the Overseas place.
Any questions?
