Hey, i got a letter from Swansea Uni which said, "In order to determine the details of your offer, I should like to invite you to visit the department."
It mentions looking around the campus and meeting current Physics students, but nothing about an interview.
So I was just wondering what the letter means. Am i going to get an offer? What if i can't make it? The open day is months away, in march - so will i not know untill then?
Any help greatly appreciated!

By the sounds of it it implies that they certainly plan on giving you an offer. By "the details of your offer" I assume they mean the grades i.e. they may give you a really low offer if they really want you to come or just give you their standard offer. By coming up it is probably not for an interview but to get to know you, meet you and see what you are like then on those grounds give you the grades with your offer.
If you are unsure, it would be best not to guess what they mean, but call up or email the admissions tutor. You will probably be able to find those details on the website and they will be able to help you with your concerns. They are normally very friendly and extremely helpful.

I got a similar letter to that when I applied to Swansea. Mine included an informal interview, we were told at the start of the visit day that we were all going to get offfers, but based on whan we said in the interview, they may alter it slightly, ie if perhaps you weren't as confident of getting a certain grade in a subject, they may place less emphasis on it, or something along those lines (it was 3 years ago).
There's no harm in you phoning them and asking for clarification though.
