UCAS makes background information available to UCA when they send your application them – this is called contextual data. Some universities will use this data when they make a decision about offering you a place, but at UCA they do not use this when assessing your application. As a Home/EU applicant you will be invited to an interview or to send in a portfolio of work to support your application.
