Hello,
I need to firm a conditional offer until May 01. However, I also applied to another school in Australia, which I like a bit more. I will receive a decision after 16. June. Can I "say no" to my firmed conditional offer after accepting it a month and a half earlier? Or would I have to pay one years tuition fee?

Cheers!

Do you possibly have any reference? I need to show my parents before I accept it I couldn't find anything.

No, no reference- just my brain?
But like people attend uni and then withdraw after a few weeks if they hate it.
Any money that you have already paid you won't get back but as the semester won't have started you won't have to pay any money

But look what it says here: https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/a...raduate-offers

Changed your mind?
Here’s what to do if you change your mind:

If you accepted your offers in the last 14 days, contact one of our advisers to make any changes to your replies.
If it’s been more than 14 days since you replied to your offers, there is a more detailed process you need to follow. As you’ve agreed to a contract with your chosen unis, it may be possible, but we are unable to guarantee you can change them. You’ll need to speak to them about changing your replies, and then call us, to let us know what you want to do.

Also covered a bit here

You won't have to pay
E-mail the uni in question if you are concerned

I am 99% sure you can pull out of UCAS on results day so I don't see why you can't do so before that. I think it is more complicated if you want to change your choices eg firm 3rd choice rather than 1st choice.

You can definitely accept an offer and then choose to decline them later. An applications officer I met at the Aberdeen university open day said that if you've applied abroad but don't get their answer until later, you should accept your British offer, and then you can definitely decline it later. The only thing he added was simply to decline it as soon as you can, as it frees the space up for other people who might be interested in Clearing.

In practice, you can pull out any time until you actually register at the university. Honest.

Accepting an offer on UCAS only locks you into the ucas system (and Track will have the option to withdraw from ucas even after accepting an offer).

You aren’t locked into an obligation to attend a university until you enrol (and even then there may be flexibility in the fee policy). Similarly you can lose a non refundable deposit for accommodation depending on the small print.

I am assuming that this is before results day so on results day you can reject the uni if you are planning to study in the UK that is.
