Brunel Online Application Process

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. I have already made an application but would like to apply for another course. How?

Q2. I’ve forgotten my password. What should I do?

A2. Click on the 'Forgotten Password’ link on the Online Applications login page and complete the security questions. An email will then be sent to your email address (the address you provided during the application process). If you no longer have this, you will need to create a new username by logging in as a “New User”

Q4. I’ve submitted my application but I want to make some changes now.

A7. Ensure that you click the mouse outside of the drop-down menu box before scrolling down the page using the mouse.

If you do not notice the changes until you have submitted your application, please see Q4 above.
