Unconditional Offer

Got an Unconditional Offer for Uni of Roehampton.

I am grateful that I got one.

Its the 2nd best one out of my 5 choices.

This is the only bad thing.

Apparently it only has 10k student max in total whereas my 2nd choice with a conditional has 25k.

I want to meet a lot of people.

Is this a good decision.
You will still meet the same amount of people at either one obvs people from ur accom and course and hobbies

Even with 10k you never are going to meet them all. You will make friends at which ever uni. Housemates, coursemates, society mates, even mates queuing up for a coffee or going to the gym.

Will I have a good time even though its saying that theres 5k to 10k. other unis have 15k to 25k

I am also looking forward into being in a relationship and theres about 63% females in the uni that i was given unconditional offer
You have months to decide this. If you’re applying through ucas then you don’t reply to your offers until all 5 choices have made a decision.

Try and visit all of your choices to see what they’re like in person

Hopefully you don't plan to spend all your time trying to meet all 6,300 female students rather than studying??? 😳
Three days at Glastonbury woud be cheaper.
Bro you aren't meeting 10,000 people.

Of course you will have a good time. But please dont just choose a uni because it gave you an unconditional. My daughter got one from a uni and shes turned it down for a firm and insurance choice that she knows she loves more.

Consider your uni options with a multiple of factors.
1. Course and its modules
2. Facilities and teaching, support, job prospects
3. Accommodation
4. Uni socially, societies etc
5. City/town the uni is based.

Once you have your top two then order them as firm and insurance, making sure that you one with the higher value of grade entry as your firm. However, if one of your top two is an unconditional, then if you feel comfortable having it as your top choice then go for it.
Daughter eldest had been declined at Oxford, but got her unconditional at Lancaster. She also loved York. Both loved Lancaster and York equally, but went for Lancaster and never regretted declining York.
Daughter whos applying for next year youngest loved Reading and Chester, but got an unconditional at Lincoln. Lincoln was not in her top two, and if she was to go for Lincoln, she would always regret not choosing Reading or Chester. So she declined her unconditional at Lincoln.
Two different situations. One choosing an unconditional offer, the other not.Both of those choices are completely right for them, so you have to choose whats right for you. If Roehampton you want to keep insurance but forfeit the unconditional if you firm offer, then that fine if you think you will make the insurance offer they have made.
I'd also note that courses issuing unconditional offers, (which is a recruitment ploy for their benefit, not yours), are more likely to be in clearing.

Which is not to say that it is not the right offer to accept for you, only that statistically it's more likely to be one that is struggling to recruit up to capacity, (again, not that unusual).
If it’s your second choice then it would make an excellent insurance choice.

Hey! I go to Roehampton and it really doesn't feel small! I've made so many friends from all years and all different courses just through accomodation, freshers, similar interests and societies, even just waiting at the bus stop and noticing their lanyard!! Just because it's smaller than most doesn't mean you won't make friends! I find that the fact that courses are small means that in comparison to other unis I looked at, Roehampton gives you much more tailored support, all the lecturers know you as a person rather than a face in a lecture hall! If you want any more info, feel free to message me through Unibuddy (find the unibuddy page on the Roehampton website and filter to primary education students, then click Lily)
Hey, I’ve also received an unconditional offer for September. If you want maybe we can chat?
