Due to the high volume of applications received, the School’s capacity to provide more detailed and bespoke feedback is limited. It is the University’s policy to provide feedback on a single occasion only, our preferred method for this is the letter you will receive to inform you of the reason for the decision made in regards to your application around the time you receive your decision through UCAS. Nevertheless, the Sub-Dean for Admissions or Admissions Officer may, at their discretion and if requested by the applicant personally by email to medadmissionsfeedback@cf.ac.uk provide limited guidance about relevant aspects of the application. Feedback requests will not be reviewed or responded to until April each year, and will not be provided over the phone under any circumstances.
