Application and selection If your deferral request is not approved, you will be welcome to submit a fresh application the following year. We only offer the option of a one year deferral, unless the applicant has extenuating circumstances preventing them from beginning their course for two years, such as compulsory national service. Part-time provision and application Provision is available for you to progress on a part-time basis through a certain number of the QMU’s full-time degree courses. For part-time courses you should apply directly to QMU and not through UCAS. Please contact Admissions for information. Health Some courses require specific medical information as a condition of entry and this is detailed in the relevant course entries in the prospectus. QMU is not responsible for any fees or payments incurred by students in obtaining evidence of state of health. Criminal convictions All applicants are asked to disclose criminal convictions to help safeguard the welfare of our students. Applicants for certain courses of study must declare all criminal convictions, and in these cases the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 does not apply. Candidates for healthcare courses will be asked to provide a satisfactory criminal record check from the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme as part of their application. This arises from UK Government legislation, and will apply to all courses of this nature. For further information, see the Admissions Policy on our website at www.qmu.ac.uk/about-the-university/ quality/committees-regulations-policies- and-procedures/regulations-policies- and-procedures/. If an applicant has any doubt as to the effect a criminal conviction may have on their application, they can contact the Admissions Office who will be able to advise accordingly. 162 MORE INFO: Student Recruitment team T: 0131 474 0000 E: studentrecruitment@qmu.ac.uk Transition and Pre-Entry Team  LH  NP[]KX˝ZYZ\[ۜ• LH  NYZ\[ۜ[]KX˝Z•PT• L N[]Z\Y\[]KX˝Z•Έ˝X\˘
