About your offer

Conditional or unconditional?

You'll have received a conditional or an unconditional offer from us - both are good news!

  • A conditional offer means you still need to meet the requirements – usually exam results.
  • An unconditional offer means you've got a place, although there might still be a few things to arrange.

To progress, you'll need to reply to all your University offers via UCAS Track.

Firm or insurance?

You'll need to accept your offer as your firm or insurance place to join Lancaster.

  • A firm offer is your first choice – the place you most want to go to. If you accept a conditional offer and meet the conditions, you'll have a confirmed place at Lancaster!
  • An insurance offer is the choice you'd want if you didn't meet the conditions of your firm choice. If this is a conditional offer, you'd need to meet the conditions for your place to be confirmed.

You can learn more about your offer on the UCAS website.
