Accept offer and refuse to pay?Watch
I have received an offer for Msc Risk Management at Imperial but am still waiting for the decisions of other universitys.
The problem is that my offer expires in a few days, but the University i am waiting for needs another two weeks.
So here's the deal: What would happen if I accept the offer but -if i receive an offer from the other university- refuse to pay the deposit? Can they enforce payment from me? Am i legally obliged to pay?
I am an international applicant btw...
Thanks for your response.
You could ask for them to extend the deadline but to be honest they won't do it because they want their money rather than it going to some other university.
On the website you will find the following: The tuition fees team will email your deposit invoice within five working days of accepting the offer, and this will need to be paid within 30 days of receiving the invoice. I need 2 weeks of these 30 days to receive the offer or decline from the other university.
As soon as you get the invoice, you have 30 days from the date of the invoice to make a payment. If you do not pay the deposit in those 30 days, you will lose your spot.
If this is urgent, just give Imperial's admin team a call. Your case will not be the first and they will have dealt with similar questions before.
I know someone who managed to get an 8-week extension, as well as another who got a 10-week extension. So contact them ASAP... I hope my message is not too late though.

You accept the offer by paying the deposit. If you don't pay the deposit, you haven't accepted the offer yet.
