HELP! I accepted a masters offer but I might want to change itWatch
Need more help on going postgrad?
Hi, I didn't apply for masters through UCAS. Can I accept more than one offer without facing any consequences? I didn't know about the firm acceptance and insurance acceptance situation that I read about online (I'm not from the UK). I accepted one offer from one uni thinking I could accept the others, is that possible? Can I change my mind after accepting the offer and just go ahead with another uni? Thank you! (I'm freaking out sorry).
Hi applying for masters is different from applying for undergrad degrees. For the latter, you have to apply through UCAS, for masters courses you apply directly to the uni. Don't worry, if you have accepted a place on a masters course, you can withdraw your acceptance with no consequences. It only becomes tricky if you have paid your deposit for the masters. Most unis will give you back your deposit but one or two may choose to keep it if you withdraw.
Hi! Thank you so much for your answer! I didn't pay any deposits so that shouldn't be a problem So, you're saying that I can just withdraw from my offer and accept another offer from another uni without having a problem? Other universities are not notified about me accepting another unis offer?
Unis don't speak to each other about who has or has not accepted places on their Masters programme. Different departments in the same uni may share this kind of information but because of data privacy laws rest assured different unis will not have such data.
