Terms and conditions

  • The reduced UCAS points offer can only be applied to University of Cumbria courses linked to the masterclass attended. Please see the table below for clarification.
  • The UCAS points reduction will only be applied if the masterclass is attended prior to submitting an application for the degree programme through UCAS. Points cannot be redeemed retrospectively if you have already applied for one of the eligible courses at the University.
  • UCAS points will automatically be deducted from the top of the range upon application.

For example: University of Cumbria entry requirements for BSc Hons Applied Psychology are 104-120 UCAS points. The standard offer would be at the top of the range, 120 UCAS points. Following attendance at a relevant masterclass, an applicant would be made a reduced conditional offer of 104 UCAS points.

  • The standard reduction is 16 UCAS points. A specified number of masterclasses (shown in the table below) are eligible for an optional 24 UCAS point deduction. To receive the additional points, the applicant must complete a reflective piece equivalent to approximately 1000 words after the masterclass and submit it to an academic for marking. Further details of this will be provided at the masterclass.
  • To receive the reduction in points, it is imperative that the applicant completes all personal details requested at the end of the masterclass.
  • The UCAS points reduction cannot be redeemed at a different institution or against courses that are not listed in the terms and conditions.
  • Only one UCAS points deduction offer can be redeemed per course upon application - attending multiple masterclasses for the same degree programme will not result in the accumulation of points. If multiple events are attended the University will deduct the relevant points from any relevant course applied for. This UCAS points reduction cannot be applied in conjunction with the Summer University offer for the same degree programme. If an applicant attends the Y12/13 Summer University in addition to a masterclass, the applicant would receive an offer based on the greatest reduction in points for the applicant.
