Coronavirus - Information for Prospective Students and Applicants

Applicants or prospective applicants to courses at SRUC

Please check this information regularly as it will be updated as the situation develops.

Firstly, there is no need to panic. Whether you’re an applicant already holding an offer, or whether you haven’t made an application yet, we guarantee that this year’s national qualifications grades - based on units, course work and teacher feedback - will be recognised and valued to support your learner journey into and through SRUC.

We are also closely monitoring the situation with other UK and worldwide qualifications and alternative exam/marking arrangements will also be recognised and valued

We will ensure that nobody is unfairly disadvantaged by the current extraordinary circumstances. Please bear with us while we gather all the relevant information and finalise the details.


Question marks

We are building up a library of additional frequently asked questions and you can find updates here.

How will you progress my application?

SRUC is committed to supporting our applicants and will continue to make decisions on applications in a timely way.  However, we are likely to use email rather than post at this time - please keep an eye on your email and check your Spam filter regularly, just in case. 

What if you have been invited for an interview?

We won’t be running interviews on campus any longer, as we’re sure you will appreciate.  We will be in touch with you about your application.

Are SRUC’s on-campus events running?

In the light of recent government advice, we are not able to carry on as usual. This means that all applicant day events, and open day events between now and summer have been cancelled as everyone tries to limit face-to-face contact. We are hopeful that our planned August events will be able to go ahead, but will continue to review.

We are looking at other ways we can share what we do with you, and give you chance to ask questions and chat with us and each other online. Once these plans are confirmed we will email you directly with details and share on our social media channels. 

Please search for and follow your campus Facebook page to keep in touch.

Applicants with offers

If you have already received an offer, please remember to respond to your offer either through UCAS or directly to SRUC.
