How the Data Protection Act 1998 is relevant to your online application.
You can only send us one application in each year's application cycle. If you send a second application in the same year, it will be cancelled and you will not receive a refund.
If you applied in a previous cycle and would like to apply again, you'll need to complete a new application; we can't reuse a previous one.
If you applied last year and deferred your place to start this year, you can't reapply unless you withdraw from the original choice - if you want to withdraw and reapply, speak to the university for advice.
