UWE Admissions and UCAS are Confusing me

    So, I got this email from UWE: (the underlined bit is what's weird)



    "Thank you for your application for entry to the Politics and International Relations (FY) programme here at UWE, Bristol. We are currently in the process of reviewing numbers and offering places on this programme to those applicants that applied to us earlier in the admissions cycle. Unfortunately, as you have made a late application, we currently do not have any further places available on the foundation year that you have applied for. If you wish to be considered for the degree programme without the Foundation Year please let us know and we will review whether we can offer you a place on year one. We are happy to keep your application on hold until places have been confirmed but please be aware that your application is currently not being considered. Whilst your application is with UWE we appreciate that you cannot make any further applications to alternative universities and so, you may wish to consider withdrawing your application and submitting another choice through UCAS. If you do choose to withdraw your application and then wish to resubmit to us in future, should vacancies on this programme arise, we would be happy to receive your application for consideration."

    What does that mean? So, my understanding is that this means my application is not being considered, but the bottom part is not making much sense.... if I withdraw my application, I can't submit another choice through UCAS because I already have 2 other offers (which I don't want to lose) and when you withdraw you can't make other choices, right? Or am I missing something? Please help!

    Also, if I did want to be considered for the degree programme as they mentioned, would that affect the rest of my UCAS application?

    So their saying there might be space for you on year one so if you let them know asap if you want to apply for that but they re effectively saying the foundation year currently has no places and they ll wait list you for (and take up your time and a choice) it if you don't decide to try for year one or withdraw .

    If you decide you want to be considered it won't affect any other choices as the university is potentially offering you a course change themselves.
