I’ve received a response – what’s next?


Once you’ve received decisions back from all your choices, it’s time to start thinking about picking your Firm and Insurance universities. Before you make your final selection, it’s worth investing some time in visiting the universities you’ve got offers from and talking to current students at those universities – in person and online.

I’ve received an offer…

Come to an Applicant Visit Day

You might have already visited some or all of your choices before you applied, but it’s a good idea to visit again and spend some time asking the questions that will help you to make your final decision. If you have been made an offer or asked to interview, you will be invited to an Applicant Visit Day at Coventry University.

Use the day to look round the buildings you’ll be studying in, take a campus and accommodation tour, talk to lecturers about the course and current students about what student life is really like.

Join the Coventry University Offer Holders’ Facebook Group

If you receive an offer from Coventry University, you will be invited to join the Offer Holders’ Facebook Group. This is a great way to meet others who have been made an offer to study here, and who probably have the same questions as you about accommodation, student finance, meeting new people and settling in to university life.

Reply to your offers

Hopefully all this extra research and visiting will help you to decide how to reply to any offers you have received.

If you have been made an unconditional offer, you can select it straight away to confirm your place. If your offers are conditional on exam results or other requirements, you can pick two (one Firm and one Insurance) so you have an extra one as a back-up. You must then decline all other offers.

Remember, you'll only attend your Insurance choice course if you don't meet the conditions of your Firm choice, but you do meet the conditions of your Insurance choice, so make sure your Insurance choice has lower entry requirements. You can't choose between your Firm and Insurance when you get your results, so make sure you're certain about which you want as your Firm and which as your Insurance – and would be happy to attend either – before you reply.

I didn’t get the offers I wanted…

UCAS Extra

If you didn’t get the offers you were hoping for, you can still get a place at university or college by using UCAS Extra. Extra lists all the courses that still have availability, and runs between 25 February and 4 July. If you included five choices on your application, have received decisions from all five, and weren’t accepted, or if you declined or withdrawn from the offers you received, you will be able to use Extra.
