After You Apply

What happens once you apply?

Once we've received and considered your application, we will make a decision and give you an offer. There are three possible outcomes:

  • Unconditional: If we are happy with your application and you have met all the entry requirements, then we can make you an unconditional offer. This means you definitely have a place on your chosen course.
  • Conditional: If you have not met all the entry requirements yet or might be waiting to take exams or receive results, we may make you a conditional offer. This offer means we are happy to have you on our course, as long as you achieve the appropriate qualifications.
  • Unsuccessful: If we are not able to offer you a place, your application will be unsuccessful and will not be considered further. You may however be eligible to make a further application through the Extra or Clearing processes.

Making your choice

When you have received all your offers from the universities you have applied to, you will be asked to make a Firm (first) or Insurance (second) choice. If you receive an offer from us we will invite you to an Applicant Day to help you with your decision.

Applicant Days

Applicant Days usually happen between February and April and are subject specific. They are designed to provide you with more detailed information about your course, as well as the chance to meet the staff who will be teaching you and current students. You'll get a real feel for what it’s like to be a student with us, see where you will be studying, and discover where you could be living.


Once you've accepted a place with us, you will need to think about where to live.

If you apply for University accommodation before 30 June (or before 31 July if you are an international student) and make us your Firm choice, you are guaranteed a place in one of our 4,000 plus rooms. 

Visit our accommodation site to find out more.

You might prefer to live in private rented accommodation rather than halls of residence. If so, you should start looking for places to live as soon as you’ve accepted your place. You can visit Unipol Student Homes for help with this.

Our Online Welcome and Registration service gives you all the information you need to help you settle in during the first few weeks prior to your arrival. You will be given access to this service when you have accepted your place.

How long can I defer for? I have already deferred my place once.

Unfortunately, you are only allowed to defer for one year. If you have extenuating circumstances that may require your deferral for a further year then please email us at with full details of those circumstances so that your request can be considered. Please also provide your full name, UCAS personal ID and course.

I have applied for one course but I would like to apply for another course?
For UCAS applicants, you have 5 choices on application. If you have used up all your 5 choices you cannot make any more choices. However if you have made the wrong choice and you have not yet received a decision on your application then you could contact UCAS to substitute one of your choices. If you have already received a decision on your application and want to change then this is not possible and you may have to go through Clearing. For postgraduate, part-time and distance learning courses you can simply apply. For all courses it is important that you check the course availability and your application status. Please send an email to with your full name, UCAS personal ID and details of the changes that you would like to make.
What evidence do you require from me to confirm my place?

If you applied through UCAS, it is likely that we will receive some, if not all of your examination results via UCAS. If you have been asked to send your results in to us, this will be detailed on your offer letter/UCAS Track. It is very important that you do so as soon as possible after receiving your results. They can be faxed to us on 0113 812 3144 or scanned to if you applied via UCAS. If you applied directly to us, please send them to Please make sure you have put your name and Personal ID/Leeds Beckett number on the correspondence to avoid any delays in confirming your place with us.
