What do you do? Dr. Ian Scott, Admissions Officer

As Admissions Tutor I get to plan our recruitment year-on-year, how many students on each degree, what kind of offers we make to prospective students, how we present the degrees and department at Open Days etc. In liaison with the School Admissions Office we have to plan publicity years in advance, negotiate our entrance requirements and thoroughly examine our processes each year to make sure we’re as scrupulously fair as we can be when it comes to deciding on offers. Admissions is a tricky business for us and the whole university these days. If we miscalculate either way we can end up with either too few students or, as is the danger in our case, way too many, and that has serious resource implications.
