Journey of an application.
Submitting a UCAS application is just the beginning of the process. We have outlined the process of your application so you know what to expect throughout the year.
- UCAS Hub – a service from UCAS that lets you see how your university applications are progressing, accept interview invitations or offers, and reply to universities about your offers.
Universities/colleges will respond to your application with a range of replies:
- Unconditional offer – No matter what your exam results the university have accepted you to their course.
- Conditional offer – Based on certain exam results, you are pre accepted to the course
- Unsuccessful – You have not been successful.
Time to reply to offers.
- Select a firm choice – select your firm choice
- Insurance choice – select your insurance choice. This is usually a course that has a lower requirement of a conditional offer.
- Decline offers – if you have a change of mind you can decline offers.
Get your student accommodation sorted before the rush.
Why not take the time to research where you might like to live if your offers get accepted. You might feel it’s too soon, but it’s always good to know what your options are.
And when it comes to reserving your accommodation, being an early bird can have its benefits. The earlier you book, the more likely you are to snap up your preferred room type and accommodation building; rather than being left with a lack of choice and having to settle for second best.
If you book your student accommodation with Host today, you’ll benefit from the knowledge in knowing if you don’t get your offer accepted or the grades needed, you can cancel your booking and wont have to pay a penny.
That’s our No Play No Pay promise.
