Can anyone tell me how long we have to accept an offer for a Masters course once it's been given? I'm waiting to hear back from Manchester, but while I've been waiting I've relooked at a similar course at Leeds which looks terrific.
So if, for example, Manchester came back today with an offer and I've not yet applied to Leeds, would I have a matter of days to accept, or weeks or months?
Maybe each Uni is different and I've looked everywhere on both their sites to find the answer, but I can't.

It will be a matter of months at this early stage and even then it's not typically a hard deadline (except for the purpose of accommodation).
There is of course nothing stopping you from accepting a Manchester offer while you wait for Leeds and then cancelling the former.

I think it probably is different for each university. I had an offer from Queen Mary which contained a clause meaning I had to accept or reject within one month of the offer being given. I'm still waiting to hear back from Leeds and King's College, but I emailed both of those and they said that even if I accept an offer elsewhere they will still consider my application as per usual - there is no communication between universities.
I think if your offer doesn't have a similar clause then you could just email the admissions office to be on the safe side.
