The admissions process of UKCBC is both competitive and selective as per the requirements of the awarding bodies, other regulatory bodies and the admissions policy of the college. It is the responsibility of the admissions office to ensure that the educational standards are met consistently and fairly.

Individuals will not be offered a place with UKCBC if the admissions team find that they are not suitable for their chosen course. Those who are denied admission and wish to appeal against the decision can make a formal appeal to the admissions office requesting that their application be re-consideration.

An appeal can be submitted under various circumstances; when individuals find that their academic credentials (scores and/or grades) have significantly changed, or if they have forgotten to send relevant documentation or that such documentation may not have been received by the admissions office, or if they believe that there was an error made in their application/initial assessment process.

An appeal may be made either in writing to the admissions office – Appeals at UKCBC’s head office, with any supportive documentation/evidence, or via email to admissionsappeal@ukcbc.ac.uk, with attachments, where appropriate.
