Your offer guidance

Accepting Your Offer

If you have applied through UCAS you should accept your offer by going to UCAS Track, although you'll only be able to do this after you've received decisions from all of the universities that you have applied to. If you have applied through UCAS, you can accept a firm (first) choice and an insurance (second) choice.

If you have applied directly to the university, you must abide by the deadlines to reply set within your offer communication.

Once you have accepted your place, from Spring onwards for September entry (November for January entry) we will send you information about what to do next, including booking accommodation and how to evidence that you have met your entry requirements.

Unconditional Offers

A small number of applicants each year receive an unconditional offer. This is an offer of a place on your chosen course with no academic conditions or requirements. For example, if you have taken a break between leaving school or college before applying to university, you will already know your GCSE and level 3 results when you apply, enabling us to make you an unconditional offer.  

For a select number of courses, if your application form is exceptionally impressive, we may make you an unconditional offer. We will take into account all of the information available to us, including your personal statement, your teacher’s reference and your GCSE results. If we make you an unconditional offer ahead of your result publication, it demonstrates our confidence that you have the necessary qualities to excel on one of our degrees. Without any concern about reaching certain grades, you will be able to focus on achieving excellent A-level results that will be an indicator for prospective employers when you start applying for jobs.

Even with an unconditional offer we still need to see evidence of your qualifications and you must provide these as this evidence is a condition of you registering on programme. (see below for further details on when to provide this evidence)
