Step 3 - Check your email regularly

After you submit your application, you'll receive a confirmation email from us. This email will include your ARU Student Identification number (SID), which will be necessary to check your application status at any point.

From there, our team will start to assess your application. Some applications will need to be referred for faculties and to be checked by the course leaders, so please be patient!

We may contact you to ask you to provide more information or supporting documents before we can make a decision on your application. Therefore, it's very important that the contact details on your application form are correct and up to date and that you check your email regularly for correspondence back from us.

Applicant Portal

You can check the progress of your application on our Applicant Portal. You can also use the portal to upload documents required to assess your application. Details of how to access your portal and your username and password will be emailed to you soon after you submit your application.
