What Happens Next?
Receiving an offer from UCFB is just the start of your journey with us, and there is still much you need to do between receiving an offer and enrolling on a course in the following September. As this is in the latter stages of the application process, if you have applied to numerous programmes at different institutions, then you will often want to wait until you have had all of your decisions back before deciding which institution you would like to study at.
That doesn’t mean that you should wait around however, there is plenty you can be doing once you have received your offer to start preparing for September.
Find out more about UCFB
If you have applied to UCFB and received an offer, then you should consider finding out more about us and the programmes and opportunities we offer.
To help applicants and those with offers make up their minds, UCFB regularly host taster events, one-to-ones and popular Open Days for prospective students to visit one of our amazing campuses to see for themselves what’s on offer at UCFB. For more information, click here.
It’s really important that you visit your choices, see the campus and meet the academics before making your decision, so it’s always best to start that process as soon as you possibly can.
Selecting your Firm or Insurance place
Once you have received all your offers through UCAS, you will be required to choose your Firm (first) choice and your Insurance (secondary). This process gives you a back-up option should you for whatever reason be unable to go to your Firm choice of institution.
Most applicants through UCAS will be asked to do this by the first week or the final week of May, although many have an even longer deadline.
Applicants applying direct to UCFB outside of UCAS do not need to select a firm or insurance choice but should contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to let us know if you plan to accept our offer or not. If your plans have changed and you no longer feel that UCFB is for you then that is completely OK, however informing us will help us to free up that space for another applicant and will prevent you from getting further communications from us.
