Hi Fran,

Is this what it says in the offer field? Is there anything else?

if this is all there is in your offer then I'd suspect that they've accidentally forgotten to copy the terms of the offer into it so you should contact them.

They are possibly trying to establish if you *are* a Home fee student - they have different quota figures for Home vs Overseas students - it isnt unknown for an offer to actually depend on what fee status you are because of this. Is your fee status in question because of residence etc?

Yeah I thought that the conditions were very out of the ordinary. I don't know how my residence could be in question because I filled in all the details quite clearly stating that I live in Bournemouth and have done all my life..... I'm so confused!

Call the Uni first thing on Monday - it sounds like a simple data-entry mistake to me, and something that can be very quickly sorted out.

Have you spoken to them or just assumed it was all okay? I'm going to try calling again as admissions department at SHU doesn't have a voicemail facility.... Which is frustrating!

If you have an UNconditional offer.... then there won't be any conditions and the letter will be a little odd, and will be as you have received.

However, if your offer is conditional, then it's super odd and you need to contact them immediately as they've input the offer wrong.

I've got an offer which states exactly the same thing, it doesn't mean anything there just telling you the fee for the course.

Edit: Just realised it had no grades on, oops. As the others have said just contact admissions and they'll sort it out, email them if you can't get through.

I have a Unconditional, and when i Click on a my course in Track, it says:

Decision
Unconditional

Conditions
This offer is subject to you obtaining

The Home/EU rate of fee for this course will be 9000 pounds sterling in 2013
for most students


Its a bit strange.

Its a bit strange.

The letters from UCAS are templates.

It will say you have an unconditional offer.

The letter automatically states
"Conditions
This offer is subject to you obtaining"
This is because the majority of offers Uni's give out are conditional offers.

It is then just telling you what the fee's are for the course you've been offered a place on.

I kind of got that, I'm awaiting a reply from the admissions to see if clears anything up. I'll post what the reply is. It just seems very misleading as 3 days prior to this reply they had automatically deemed me unsuccessful and then it was changed to this.... I have however been sent through an invite to an open day so it can't all be bad news.....

If it is a conditional offer, it just means that they forgot to input the conditions, so you need to PHONE them. Don't email them.

UPDATE:
I received an email response this morning and they made my conditions a lot clearer, it did seem as though that they had just missed out what grades I needed to achieve
