You can’t apply to Loughborough whilst you’re holding the current offer.
Don’t let people’s opinions on Loughborough dishearten you! It’s all about which one you’d prefer and both unis /cities offer different things. Loughborough was one of the unis that gave me an informal offer through Adjustment and I chose Manchester over it as it’s a lot better for nightlife /city-based, whereas I’ve heard Loughborough is very out the way and you have to travel out of the area for a good night out, but think it’s quite a sporty uni if that’s what you’re into, really depends what you want out of your time at uni.
I have received an offer from University of York which I applied using UCAS extra. I have accepted the offer as a firm choice and it is unconditional. I recently found out that Loughborough also has places for computer science and want to go there. What should i do? any chances of applying there without risking my offer on york . Thanks
Sorry for the delayed response - I have been waiting to hear back from our Admission's team about your situation. They have now responded and said that as you have accepted an unconditional offer, you are now placed at York and you will not be able to make any changes until Clearing opens later in the year.
However, if you have met our requirements, you are able to email us on or just after 5th July when Clearing formally opens. Our Admission's team will be able to advise and look into accepting you via clearing, at which point you can ask York to release you, but as you have accepted an unconditional offer they are placed and nothing can be done at the moment.
I hope that makes sense. If you would like to discuss this in further detail, we would advise contacting [email protected] who may be able to clarify.
You have to either decline York and make an Extra application to LB in the hope that they might accept you, or just be grateful you got an offer at all and go to York.
