    I'm looking to withdraw from my insurance offer so that if I fail to get into my firm I can be free to go through clearing as I don't want to go to my insurance anymore.

    How do I go about it doing it? Anyone have any idea?

    I can't until tomorrow. Plus I don't have enough credit - I'm not at home.

    Who do I send an email to? The uni or departments - it's a combined course?

    they'll only tell you to contact the uni, no need to phone ucas. The uni need to release you from the offer.

    Shall I contact the admissions people of the uni first and then ask them what to do?

    Ring uni admissions. Don't email, it'll never happen with most unis who get hundreds a day.

    You have to ask the uni to "release you" from your contract or whatever, which they will do, then they should contact UCAS

    Cool - cheers. I'm glad I don't have to bother calling UCAS then. But feel a bit sorry for my insurance uni. But my god the accomodation is well over £1000 more than I'm set to pay at my firm so they can bugger off when I'm going for budget housing.

    I'm planning to do the exact same thing tc, but does anyone know if they can decide not to release you? The issue isn't with the uni itself, just the cost, so if my firm doesn't accept me i could apply for somwhere through clearing.

    they would very rarely not release you.

    it's no skin off their nose.
