    Yes, you can, as long as the terms of the unconditional offer aren't that it is only unconditional if firmed. Check on Track to make sure. You can't have any insurance with an unconditional firm, because there are no conditions you might fail to meet.

    Some Unis allow it, some state that an unconditional offer is only valid if accepted as a students firm offer.

    Best bet, contact the University tomorrow to ask what their position is.

    An unconditional offer is an unconditional offer. It cannot magically turn into a conditional offer.

    You can accept an unconditional offer as your insurance unless you have accepted an unconditional offer as your firm, in which case you don't need insurance.

    Even if the letter states that it is only unconditional if you firm it, could you ring up the uni and negotiate and try to get them to give you an unconditional insurance?

    You would be wasting everyone's time. The whole point of making the offer unconditional if you firmly accept it is to make you accept it firmly. They aren't interested in encouraging insurance acceptances.

    But remember that CarnationLilyRose is quite correct above. I forgot about offers that become unconditional only if you accept them firmly. They are conditional if accepted as insurance.

    Well, you can always try, but I wouldn't expect you to succeed. An 'unconditional offer when firmed' is a marketing tool by the university to make sure the student puts them as firm, because knowing this kind of thing early is advantageous to the university (and not necessarily to the student) and they are much less bothered about hanging onto someone who probably won't go there.
