I have an application with UCAS but have not yet chosen my firm or insurance choice

You need to carefully consider all the options and offers you currently have before making a final decision. If you wish to take up our offer of a place, you will need to decline all outstanding offers that have been made to you in UCAS.

If you have not yet applied to us but would like to, you can still do this through UCAS Clearing. Log into UCAS and decline all your offers. This will then make you eligible for Clearing and you should have the option to add your Clearing choice.
