    SEPTEMBER 2023 INTAKE

    Message from Aswhini on 10 January about Sept 23 intake:

    We have some updates WRT to admissions process for Sept 23 intake at ENU. Please go through them thoroughly and lodge the applications.

     

    1.      Deposit amount is increased to GBP 5000.

    2.    We are no more following the admissions process of processing applications on 'first in first out' for students obtaining minimum entry percentages. Instead, we are following 'select and offer to the best quality applicants we have in the first instance'.

    3.      For all the courses offered at the School of Applied Sciences, offers will be issued for students with 65% and above. Applications with less than that will not be processed in first instance. We cannot give any tentative time when they would be processed. We urge all of you to send applications with higher percentages to get the offers.

    4.  For the courses offered under other 4 schools like Business School, School of Creative Arts, School of Computing, Engineering Built Environment and the School of Health and Social Sciences, offers will be issued for students with 60% and above. Applications with less than that will not be processed in first instance. We cannot give any tentative time when they would be processed. We urge all of you to send applications with higher percentages to get the offers.

       5.  With very high volumes of applications for the intake, University has decided to issue offers to only those applicants those are eligible for Unconditional offers.

       6.  Offer letters issued would be valid for only 8 weeks for offer holders to pay the deposit. If the deposit is not paid during that period, the offer will be withdrawn. Make sure your students pay the deposit within 8 weeks of receiving the offer or if possible, even before that. Sometimes curses might get full as other students paying the deposits well before your students.

       7. With CAPS set on most of the courses by the schools and the volumes of applications we are receiving, we might stop issuing offers on some of the courses with very high demand as early as end of Jan/Feb.

       8.   MSc HealthCare Management will need IELTS score of 6.5 with no band less than 6.0 Also we don't accept Pharmacy and Social Work students on this course. 

       9.   We will not be considering and processing any UG/PG applications with more than 2 years gap after class 12 and degree from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Please don't upload applications with gaps and dependents to accompany students. This same rule will be extended to other states if we find many applications with gaps and dependents.

          10.      It is mandatory from applicants from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand to have IELTS. We will not consider PTE and class 12 English marks in respective state boards towards English requirements. In addition to IELTS score presented, students will be interviewed to check English proficiency and only on successfully clearing the interviews, CAS will be issued.

    Those that paid their deposit for a previous intake and are deferring to September 2023 will not be required to pay an additional amount to secure their place. However, for anyone looking to pay a deposit from this point onwards, please ensure they are paying the correct amount.  

    The final deposit deadline for most courses will be 5pm on Friday 7th July. However, popular courses such as The Business School, Biosciences, Wildlife Biology, Healthcare Management and Computing with Professional Placement will be given an 8-week deposit deadline from the date of offer. Students will be notified of the specific deposit deadline for their course in their offer letter so please ask them to check this carefully.
