After you’ve been offered a place through clearing or adjustment
Congratulations, you’re coming to Manchester. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the University in September. Before you officially start with us, here’s some important information to help you get ready.
What happens next?
If you've been accepted then you can expect to receive your offer letter via email during the week commencing 17 August. An email communication will also be sent out from the 19 August asking you to create an IT account which you will need to complete your registration at The University of Manchester, as well as for your future studies. You won’t be able to activate your account until you have received this email and they are sent in batches over a number of days so don’t worry if you don’t receive this straight away. Online registration opens from 1 September.
Once you’ve created your IT account, you’ll need to confirm your attendance after which you'll be given access to our online services including My Manchester, your student portal.
If we need further information before we can accept you, then your academic School will advise you of what is required and any deadlines.
You will also receive an e-newsletter in August and September with information about being a new student at Manchester including: welcome events; accommodation; and helpful tips about your studies.
What do I need to do? (More information below)
- Read the terms and conditions of your offer (PDF document, 291KB).
- Apply online for accommodation before the 31 August 2020.
- Let the Student Loan Company know you’re now coming to The University of Manchester and which course you’ll be studying.
You will need to apply online by 31 August 2020 in order to be guaranteed a place in University accommodation. If you are applying after the 31 August the Accommodation Office will always try to help, but options may be limited.
Alternatively, private sector options are also available – please check Manchester Student Homes for information.
It’s important that you let the Student Loan Company know of any changes to your situation, in this case a change of university and course, to ensure your tuition fees and maintenance loan are covered.
Log into your Student Loan Company account and let them know that you’re now coming to The University of Manchester and give them the title of the new course you’re going to study.
As long as you have notified them of your change of course and university, we will be able to access your records and confirm your attendance.
You can find a range of information about Student Finance, including scholarships and bursaries here.
What else do I need to know about becoming a student?
Everything you need to know about becoming a student, preparing to study and starting your journey at Manchester is on our Welcome website.
What happens if I change my mind?
If you change your mind, you have the right to cancel your place by notifying us within fourteen days of the University of Manchester’s acceptance of your application in UCAS Track.
You must notify us in writing with a clear statement communicating your decision (you may send an e-mail to the named contact for your course entitled 'Cancellation', providing your UCAS ID or your University student number and your full name).
