Receiving an Offer

After submitting your application to UCAS, a copy of this application is sent to our admissions team for consideration. Should your application be successful, you will receive either a conditional offer or an unconditional offer from us. 

If you receive an offer from the University of Chester, you will be notified on UCAS Hub and sent an offer letter in the post. If there is anything you don’t understand about this offer, please don’t hesitate to contact us

What is a conditional offer?

A conditional offer means that you have been offered a place on the course that you have applied for, subject to you meeting certain conditions. These conditions are based around the entry criteria for this course. Conditional offers are made when entry level courses (such as A levels) are yet to be completed and your offer of a place cannot be confirmed until these have been completed.

A variety of qualifications are considered as part of our entry criteria, so your offer will be based around any qualifications you have and are currently taking. If your offer states that you require specific grades, possibly in a named subject or subjects, as well as the UCAS Tariff points, it is important that you meet both the grade requirements and the conditions of the Tariff points.

What is an unconditional offer?

An unconditional offer means that you have met all the academic requirements for the course you have applied for and we are happy to offer you a place. We will need proof of your qualifications so you will need to send copies of these to our Admissions team as soon as possible following receipt of your offer. If you do not provide us with evidence of your qualifications, you may not be able to enrol on the course.

Accepting Your Offer

Before accepting an offer, ensure you do as much research as possible and visit any universities that you are holding an offer with.

It is important that you remember to reply to your offer before the deadline. Reply deadlines are based on when you received your last decision from those universities and colleges you have applied for. You can view the 2023 reply deadlines here.
