Hi, I presume it's the same for English and international applicants. You will confirm one as a firm offer and another will be an insurance. If you meet the required grades for your firm choice then they will automatically accept you. You can turn them down but I believe they reserve the right to prevent you from taking your insurance choice. You should therefore reserve making judgement on your choices until after you hear about scholarships (if that is possible). I believe that is all true but I stand to be corrected if anybody else has advice.

To enter full time study you'll presumably need to reapply for a tier 4 visa.

Part of this will involve using a CAS - you can get a CAS from multiple universities (ie you can accept a bunch of offers) BUT you can only use one to get your tier 4 visa.

I believe (although I am not certain) when you accept a second offer you must tag each offer as either firm or insurance. When I did it last year, I accepted offers at the same time and it asked me to put one as firm and one as an insurance.

For MSc applications you don't choose firm and insurance. You just either accept or decline.

Firm and Insurance are only relevant for applications to undergraduate degrees via UCAS (where you can only accept a single offer). For postgraduate you can accept as many offers as you like.

Ah i see, that's why I was hesitant about answering. I wasn't sure what MSc stood for. Thanks for the clarification.

You applied for an MSc but you don't know what it stands for?

No I didn't apply for an Msc. I applied for a law degree but I thought the theory would stand for any generic degree.

To be fair, the guy asked about accepting offers. I didn't think it mattered that it was an Msc but I was clearly mistaken.

Ah apologies - for some reason I though you were the OP who applied for an MSc, hence my (stupid) confusion.

An MSc is a postgrad degree, usually takes one year.

No problem. Out of the two of us, I made the far bigger error thanks for the info, dw it wasn't stupid, just a misread.
