Offer-holder next steps

When you have your results, visit UCAS Track to check if we’ve confirmed your place.

Coronavirus information for applicants and offer-holders

We understand that prospective students and offer-holders may have concerns about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The University is following the advice from Universities UK, Public Health England and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Read our latest coronavirus information

You don't need to call us to confirm your place, we will do it in UCAS Track for you. We've put together some advice depending on what happens when you get your results so take a look to see which scenario is most appropriate for you. 

Your place is confirmed

If you’ve been accepted, then congratulations you’re coming to Manchester!

You’ll receive official confirmation from UCAS and an email from us asking you to sign up for an IT account and confirm your attendance on the course. Keep an eye out for our email from 19 August onwards.

You then need to activate your IT account – the IT sign-up process will give you your central username and password, which you’ll need to access our IT network and My Manchester.

Once you’ve activated your account, you will need to log in to My Manchester and confirm your attendance.


We're looking forward to welcoming you in September. Follow us on Twitter or Instagram for the latest news and to see who else is saying #HelloUoM.


Requesting a deferral

If you would like to request a deferral, email your academic School department, making sure you include the following details:

  • Your UCAS personal ID
  • Your name
  • Your UCAS course code

You've received an Unconditional Change Course Offer

If UCAS Track shows a change of course offer this means we have been unable to confirm your place on your chosen course but would very much like you to come to Manchester and so have offered you a place on an alternative course. You can accept or decline this via UCAS Track. If you wish to discuss this please contact us on 0161 275 2077 and have your UCAS personal ID to hand.

You’ve been unsuccessful

If UCAS Track shows that you have been unsuccessful then we haven’t been able to offer you a place on your chosen course at Manchester. Space in alternative courses may be available at Manchester through clearing. Alternatively UCAS or your School or College should be able to offer you advice on what to do next.

UCAS Track hasn't updated

If your application is still showing as Conditional Firm (CF) on UCAS Track, call us on 0161 275 2077 and have your UCAS personal ID and exam results to hand.

Your decision could be outstanding for a number of reasons so please get in touch and we can help with what to do next.

You want to be released into clearing

If you've changed your mind and would like to be released into clearing, please call our hotline on 0161 804 0050.
