    Hey I have just got a conditional offer from LCC to study Film & Television. But the conditions state that along side getting a M M M in my diploma, that i also have to pay the full fees at enrolment? Does this mean I literally have to pay the full 27,000 by september? It seems like a really random condition and I don't really understand why they have said this? On the website for my course it says nothing about paying full fee's up front, just 9000 annually... Is anyone getting the same offer or can help?

    It certainly does not mean they want you to pay all three years' tuition upfront, but even asking for 9k upfront sounds pretty dodgy to me. Presumably you will be taking out a tuition fee loan? If so, you have no control over how or when the fees are paid - the Student Loans Company pays the tuition fee directly to the university. Have you spoken to LCC or anybody at UCAS about these offer conditions?

    Hey yes I called the university and they confirmed it was just the £9000 they wanted up front. But after filling out my student finance the other day I realised that the student loans company only pays the university every term. So I am not sure how to proceed with this..

    You need to contact them again and explain what you've just said.
