Types of decisions

If you receive an offer, it will either be:

  • Conditional offer
    This means you must meet certain conditions which may be based on achieving particular results or non-academic conditions such as providing a satisfactory reference.
  • Unconditional offer
    All this means is that you have met all the entry requirements, and have been accepted without any further conditions. However, there may be additional requirements, such as a DBS check, or a Declaration of Health.
  • Alternative offer
    If we cannot offer you a place on your chosen course, we will always try to and find a suitable alternative that may interest you. We will communicate this alternative offer via UCAS Track.
  • Reject
    Unfortunately this means that you did not meet the miniumum entry requirements for the course, and we have had to reject your application because we were also unable to find a suitable alternative for you.

Accepting your offer

You will need to accept (or decline) your offer via UCAS Track, or via e:Vision for direct applications. 

UCAS applicants can accept an offer as Firm or Insurance:

  • Firm is your preferred choice
  • Insurance is your back-up choice

Direct applicants only need to confirm their intention to take up a place via e:Vision.

Conditional offers

If you accept your conditional offer, this means you must meet the conditions! For example, if one of the conditions is that you must provide a reference or proof of qualifications, then you will need to send this in to us before we can fully offer you a place on the course you have applied for.
