Right, I'm really quite confused, I got a letter from Cambridge (well...Magdalene College) today saying my offer is conditional on a financial guarantee
This isn't as much the issue as is two contradicting sections:
In the offer letter, you will note that we require a financial guarantee of your ability to support
yourself for the duration of the course, based upon estimated maintenance costs. Provision of
this guarantee is a condition of our offer to you. This financial guarantee covers three
components: the University Composition Fee, the College Fee and Maintenance
If 1'ou are not eligible for public support or haye not applied for it, you v,ill be required to
cornplete Jinartcial guorantee requirentents covering botlt College und L'niversitt' fees
On the offer letter:
In the case of candidate s who are not eligible for public support or who have not opplied for ft we will require a
guarantee that you have sufficient finances to support your course of study at the college. We will write to such
candidates about this matter in due course. All other candidates will be required to give details of their Local
Authority in the UK and confirmation that they are eligible for public support.
Soooo...... firstly what do they want....secondly...has anyone else been asked for a financial guarantee?
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
