Congratulations on receiving your offer to study here!

If you hold a conditional firm or insurance place with us, you can find out if your place has been confirmed by checking your UCAS Track on results day. 

When we've received your results, we'll also send you an email or text message to advise you of our decision.

I'm waiting for my GCSE results/other conditions. What should I do?

If your offer is conditional on GCSE results, your place will be confirmed when these results are released on Thursday 22 August. As soon as you have your results email them to us at [email protected].

If you're waiting on other exam results or conditions, these may also be published at a later date. As soon as you have them, email us at [email protected] so that we can make a decision about your place.

How do I get released from my place at the University of Westminster? 

We hope that you will join us at Westminster. However, if you're holding a confirmed place with us and you now wish to be released from Westminster to accept a place at another university, you must request an official release. You can do this in one of two ways, as follows.

1. Via UCAS

You'll need to sign in to UCAS Track and click the "Decline my place'" button. You will then be taken to a page with three options in a drop-down list. Depending on which option you select, you will be presented with different advice and guidance on your next steps. The options are: 

  • I want to go to my insurance choice. 
  • I no longer wish to go to university this year. 
  • I want to apply somewhere else in Clearing. 

If you choose "I want to apply somewhere else in Clearing", you will be given a warning to ensure you wish to proceed. 

When you confirm that you wish to be released into Clearing, UCAS will send you an email to let you know this has been actioned.

2. Via email

  1. You must email us at [email protected]
  2. Use "Release" as the email's subject line.
  3. State your Westminster or UCAS ID, full name and course title.
  4. Within your email please indicate your reason for requesting a release from the list below:
  • R1 financial hardship 
  • R2 personal (for example, death of a relative or other strong personal reason) 
  • R3 significant changes to the course at the UF provider* (for example, discontinued or changed in content) 
  • R4 sponsorship or scholarship award 
  • R5 other 
  • R6 change of level of qualification 
  • R7 change of subject area to be studied 
  • R8 wish to defer 
  • R9 transfer to another provider.

We will process your request as soon as possible but please be aware that on results day, this can take up to 48 hours.
