Unconditional offer

This means you have been offered a place - congratulations! Now all you need to do is accept the offer.

This means you have been offered a place, but we haven't received one of your supporting documents or you are still to complete the English language qualification required in order to gain admission to the University. Your offer letter will clearly state what evidence needs to be supplied. Once we have all the documents required to show you have met the conditions of your offer, your offer will change to Unconditional.
