    Hi, I recently received an email from a sixth form college that I have applied for saying that I have received a place at the college. They mentioned that I had to accept the offer online by 23rd January but another college I have applied for, doesn't do their interviews until February. Am I still able to withdraw the first college's offer if I decide I want to attend the second college?
    Thanks.

    Yes, you can withdraw from an offer you have accepted.

    Would I just email their admissions office or something?

    That's absolutely correct. I did that to one of my potential colleges.

    Just a very polite email, along the lines of:

    Dear so-and-so,

    I thank you very much for your offer of a place but it is with regret that I have taken the decision to withdraw from my place at wherever.

    Thank you very much for all your support.


    Or something to that effect.
