I received an unconditional offer for Psychology from Leicester this evening, I also have one from UEA but they're my least favourite out of my 5 universities.

UEA said in their email that the offer is only unconditional if I put it as my firm, but I can't find anything about this for Leicester.

Does anyone know whether the Leicester offer is unconditional only if it's my firm, or if it's my firm or insurance?

First of all, congratulations on your offer!

I think the best thing to do is to contact the university. That way, you will know for certain. It looks as though there aren't any requirements for the unconditional offer to stand, but it's better to be safe than sorry!

an unconditional offer can only be a firm.
Accepting an unconditional offer means that it will be the university you will go to. Unconditional offers = committed offers. If you accept an unconditional offer it can only be your firm. You can't firm an unconditional offer and have an insurance and likewise you can't firm a conditional offer and use an unconditional as insurance.

I have the same problem, I got an unconditional from Leicester for Bio sciences but would not want it as my firm choice. May not even be my insurance

I don't think that's correct. You sometimes can firm a conditional offer and have an unconditional as your insurance.

I could be wrong about that part, I was told that accepting an unconditonal meant you were comitted to going to that uni. I know for a fact that you can't have an unconditional as firm and still have an insurance choice, maybe its different the other way round.

If you firm an unconditional offer, you don't have an insurance and you can't go into adjustment. You've made the commitment of going there and accepting the place.

Sometimes uni's offer you an unconditional and DON'T require you to firm the offer. In such cases you can put the unconditional offer as your insurance.

Exactly.

Leicester don't insist you firmly accept them.

Correct. Aberdeen have given me an unconditional which can, and will be my insurance. Lancaster have also given me a weird offer of AEE instead of AAB if I firm them lol

I got an unconditional from Leicester for Sociology and I put it as my insurance, it just means if you don't meet the offer for your firm you'll definitely have a place there Some unis only give you an unconditional if you firm them but Leicester don't

I emailed Leicester about it after receiving my unconditional, they said it still stands even if I put it as my insurance.
