    So, I made 5 choices on Ucas., UCLan was my first choice and the day after my application they accepted me. I didn't realise I could withdraw choices up until this point, so just withdrew my remaining options so I could accept UCLan and get it squared away.

    I originally applied for a Foundation course, however in their offer letter they said they want me to go straight ahead to the main course. Excellent of course, but now I've accepted the offer on Ucas, am I bound to the foundation course? Or will they adjust accordingly?

    Anyone have any idea how it works?

    "Please note that this offer is for Year one entry as you exceed the entry requirements for Foundation Entry. "

    This is pasted from their conditional offer, once I gave them evidence of my qualifications they sent me an unconditional offer and that's what I accepted. However the offer was for the original application of foundation, so says entry level 0.

    Any clues as to what will happen with this? Seems like it wouldn't really be too binding considering UCLan want me to skip foundation?

    Cheers,

    Rich

    Sounds like you've accepted the year 1 offer, check your track and under year of entry does it still say 0?

    It says "Start from: Foundation year."

    The original application and offer was all based around this, the only confirmation of year one start was via their message once they gave me an offer it seems.

    It's all a bit confusing! I guess I should wait out to hear from them since I've accepted and go from there?

    So, to clear this all up should anyone have a similar issue.

    Even though Ucas said I was starting on year 0 and that the offer was for foundation, on UCLan's systems I was set for year 1. They offered to update Ucas for me but said it really had no effect as everything was correct on their end.

    Thanks for the help claireestelle.
