If you have already received a conditional and/or unconditional offer, these are still valid.
If you applied through UCAS or UCAS Teacher Training, all you need to do is log in to your UCAS Track account as soon as possible and make us your firm choice.
If you applied to us directly, just log in to MyTSD (https://mytsd.uwtsd.ac.uk/) and accept your offer.
You’ll be so glad you did! As voted by our students, we’re currently first in the UK for our courses and lecturers (What Uni Student Choice Awards).
We care about our students and want you to know that despite the postponement of the summer exams your application will still be processed and all offers that have been made to our applicants are still valid.
We have been working with the Welsh Government and have taken the decision to extend the deadline for obtaining your GCSE grades or equivalent to 30th November 2020 for the BAEd Primary Education with QTS and PGCE with QTS Primary and Secondary programmes.
The entry tests will not be taking place at this time; therefore, all offers of places will be conditional on candidates passing both the literacy and numeracy entry test later in the year. We are currently unable to tell you when these entry tests will take place, but we will be in touch once we have more information.
In response to advice from government and public health authorities to minimise the risk of potential spread of the virus, the University has reviewed the way we will verify your documents as part of the DBS application process.
Under normal circumstances, the Disclosure and Barring Service require that applicants must provide the original documents for verification prior to an application being submitted for processing. Due to the current situation, they will now allow for document verification to be done electronically, either via email or through video communication with the verifier, but have stated that the originals must then be verified in person at the earliest opportunity. This means that the University will be able to continue to verify your documents and submit your applications for processing but we will require all applicants and students to provide your original documents in person during the first week of term. Failure to do this will render your DBS invalid and will prevent you from attending placements and could result in you needing to obtain a new certificate at an additional cost to you.
To verify your documents electronically, please email copies to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you include your student number for reference.
During this time the University will be suspended the option to verify documents at the Post Office. Payment for your DBS will still need to be made directly to GBG as part of the application process.
We look forward to receiving your documents electronically so that you can then proceed to submit your DBS application to GBG. Details of the required documentation are available to you on MyTSD. If you have any queries, please contact us on email@example.com.
The University has suspended all face to face interviews and auditions. These will now take place either online (Skype/Microsoft Teams) or via telephone. Staff will contact you to make these arrangements to ensure your interview goes ahead as planned.
Following Government directive, access to the Campuses and their facilities has been suspended. We are developing opportunities to hold a virtual open day.
You will receive an information pack from the Admissions team once you have made UWTSD your firm choice. It is important that you read the information pack as it includes all the useful information you will need such as how to apply for Student Finance, information on fees and funding, accommodation and student support including learning support. This will be sent by email and you will receive notification via text message when it has been sent. To make sure you receive yours please log in to MyTSD (https://mytsd.uwtsd.ac.uk/) and check your contact details in the Applicant Portal. If you’ve applied to us through UCAS or UCAS Teacher Training we also advise you keep your contact details up to date with them too.
To amend your contact details please log into MyTSD (https://mytsd.uwtsd.ac.uk/) where you can check and amend the details we hold for you. If you’ve applied via UCAS or UCAS Teacher Training we also advise you to keep your contact details up to date with them too.
