    Just making sure ... I really want to accept my Nottingham offer, but I am so worried because I (obviously, as I've only just started looking lol) haven't found accomodation yet and because I am bringing my dog, it's not the easiest task ever. It's not as difficult as I thought at first either tho, because I've spoken to quite a few landlords already who wouldn't mind Sam, I just haven't found the perfect place yet. I probably will, but all I am saying is, what IF I don't, but I have accepted the offer? I mean, I can't come if I find nowhere to live with the dog and then what will the uni do once you have accepted but cannot come? How bound are you to the ... contract? Would they make me pay fees anyway? Or could I just back out? I do realize this is a stupid question, but I really have to know because I am so stressed with not having found a room yet and all and yet I really do want to accept :P Thanks !!!

    You can just not turn up at no penalty to yourself.

    You could just drop out. Obviously, the earlier you told them the better as they may be able to offer the place to someone else.

    You can either withdraw from UCAS and not go to any uni that year, or beg them to release you and go into Clearing (but you probs don't wanna do that)

    If you were to drop out after you started you only have to pay fees for up to the date you dropped out. So if you pay the £1200 (or whatever it is now) at the beginning and drop out a month later then they refund 11/12ths of it.

    meaning you've agreed to go so you can't at a whim decide "oh i'll be off to sheffield now!" or wherever. the university don't have to release you from the contract in time for you to go somewhere else. it is a contract, it should be taken seriously. but if you can't go, you won't face any financial penalty. if you haven't tried already, the uni might reccomend some good houses.

    Oh yeah, I know, I wouldn't be going anywhere else, I'd just not go to England at all then :p: And my house hunting is going pretty well right now so everything looks good. I was just wondering whether I would have to pay anyway, even if I didn't go. But thanks for clearing that up

    I've accepted one of my offers....don't know if I'll eventually go though. The uni's can't do anything about it if you turn around and say "actually I don't wanna go"
