Can I accept a conditional offer?

Yes, you can! If you have decided that you want to study with us, you can accept your offer even if it is conditional.

Step 3 – Book your compliance interview

Please note that if attending a compliance interview is listed as one of the conditions on your offer letter, we will invite you to book the compliance interview as soon as you have provided all academic conditions as outlined on your offer letter. These may include academic transcripts, certificates, portfolio, personal statement, references, or proof of meeting our English language requirements. 

Step 4 – Make a deposit payment and complete the "Request your CAS" task

If paying a deposit is listed as one of your conditions on your offer letter, you will be asked to pay the deposit via email. Please keep an eye out for an email from us with the subject line: You can now pay your deposit and request your CAS. Please note the deposit amount is 50% of your fees.

Step 6 – Familiarise yourself with the immigration and visa regulations

As an international student, you are normally required to obtain a Student visa before entering the UK to study. In order to obtain a Student Visa, you must first:

  • firmly accept your unconditional offer and complete the Step 2 above
  • prepare to pay the NHS surcharge – this can usually be done at the same time as the visa application
  • ensure you meet the financial maintenance requirement as detailed in the Student visa guidance (page 45 onwards) – if you need to send your bank statements to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for your visa application, we will ask to see them before we issue your CAS so we can best advise you

Please make sure you complete the above steps as early as possible. However, please note, CAS letters will not be issued until six months before the start of your programme. You must then complete all further steps required to obtain the visa as indicated on the CAS pages on our website.

Please note that although there are plenty of options available, accommodation is not guaranteed and is allocated on a first come, first served basis.
