Receiving an offer

Once the Admission Selector has fully considered your application, the form is returned to the Admissions Office to communicate the decision to UCAS. 

The formal decision will be communicated to you by UCAS, and will indicate whether an offer of a place is being made, including any conditions which must be met before the start of the academic year.  The details will be shown on UCAS Track. If you supplied a valid email address on your application, UCAS will email you when a decision has been made. To protect confidential information, the email will not contain the actual decision: you'll still need to go to Track to check the details.

You can also use Track to accept or decline offers and change some personal details, such as your postal address, telephone number and email address.

No offers of admission made by other means are considered to be legally binding. Indications of admission by a member of staff of any Department should not be considered to constitute an offer of a place, nor should it be considered binding in any way, prior to the receipt of a formal offer through UCAS.

If your application is unsuccessful and you require feedback or wish to request that it be reconsidered please contact the Admissions Office  for further details.

For more Information, please see the Appeals Procedure for applicants.


 

Types of offer

Conditional Offer

A conditional offer means that we will offer you a place if you meet certain conditions, which are usually based on your exams.

Our offers are normally expressed in terms of GCE A level grades, or their equivalent, depending on what qualifications you will be sitting. You may be asked to achieve specific grades in named subjects.

For some courses where we receive a large number of applications from well-qualified applicants, we may not be able to make an offer to all those who are predicted to achieve (or who have already achieved) our typical offer. We will therefore consider additional academic achievements alongside the personal statement in deciding whether we are able to make an offer. We provide information about these additional selection criteria in the Entry Requirements tables in the individual subject entries

All made offer Terms and Conditions can be found on our Admissions Webpages. 

Typical Offers

This table shows the equivalent qualifications to various standard offers, for instance if the standard offer for the course that you have applied for is three A’ level grades ABB and you are studying for an International Baccalaureate, you will typically be asked to gain 33 points in your IB.

Unconditional Offer

An unconditional offer means that you have met all the academic requirements for your chosen course and we are happy to accept you. We may contact you if we need proof of your qualifications, by email in the first instance. 

All made offer Terms and Conditions can be found on our Admissions Webpages. 

Withdrawn Offer

A choice can be withdrawn either by you or us. The reason will be displayed in UCAS Track. It may be withdrawn because you didn't respond to any emails or letters from us, or because you didn't attend an interview.

Unsuccessful

This means that unfortunately, we have decided not to offer you a place.

We may decline your application for many reasons, one of which could be that the course is full, so it may not be based on the quality of your application.  If you would like to find out why you received an unsuccessful decision, you may contact us and we will endeavour to provide you with some feedback which you can hopefully bear in mind for making future applications.
