Unconditional Offer Scheme and Vice-Chancellor's Scholarships
Help and advice
An Unconditional Offer shows how much we believe in your potential – and it’s a chance for you to focus fully on your exams, with the security of a guaranteed place behind you.
Whether you’ve already received yours or you’re curious about how they work, read all about our Unconditional Offer Scheme below.
Already received an offer from us?
If your Unconditional Offer Scheme letter has arrived, you’re just a few clicks from confirming your place with us.
First make us your firm first choice on UCAS Track. Once you do that, we'll upgrade your offer from conditional to unconditional. That’s it.
When it’s time to sit your exams, there’s an added incentive of our Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship – £1,000 awarded to high-achieving Unconditional Offer holders who meet or exceed their predicted grades.

How it works
First, our admissions team reviews all the applications we receive. We then make conditional offers to applicants who meet the entry requirements of their chosen course(s).
At the same time, they'll advise a small number of applicants – based on their achievements to date, predicted grades and current teachers’ assessments – that they're eligible for our Unconditional Offer Scheme.
If we decide you're eligible for our Unconditional Offer Scheme, then it's proof of how strongly we believe in your future – and we expect you to feel the same way about us. So to benefit from the Unconditional Scheme, you'll need to make us your Firm choice.
Once you do that, we'll upgrade your offer from conditional to unconditional, so you can focus on your final year of pre-university study with the security of a guaranteed place.
The Unconditional Offer Scheme is open to students from the UK and EU.
When I was awarded the Scholarship it felt like all the work I had put in to get good grades and to get into university had paid off, and that I was being rewarded for it. But also it meant that I wouldn't have to worry about money when supporting myself at university. I spent the money that I got from the Scholarship on a new computer to help me with my studies.
Even with the Unconditional Offer Scheme, you’ll still need to meet or exceed our minimum entry requirements – 2 A levels (at A*–E) and 3 GCSEs (at grade C/grade 4 or above) – but with the security of your Unconditional Offer, we’ll be expecting much more from you.
In addition, if you have an offer through our Unconditional Offer Scheme and you meet or exceed your predicted grades, you'll receive a £1,000 Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship award.
This scholarship is no longer open to students but we will continue to honour those offers that have already been made. Full terms and conditions.
