An offer to study at the University of Lincoln will either be 'Conditional' or 'Unconditional'.

A conditional offer means that your place is subject to you meeting certain conditions, such as achieving a certain exam result, or sending copies of your passport of exam transcripts to us. These will be detailed in your offer correspondence.

An unconditional offer means that you have already met the University of Lincoln’s entry requirements for your course.

After receiving an offer from the University, you will need to decide how you would like to respond from three choices:

Undergraduate Acceptance

1. Firm acceptance

This should be your first choice from all the offers you have received. You can only use this option once.

2. Insurance acceptance

This should be your second choice. It means that if you do not meet the conditions of your first choice, but do for your insurance, then you will be accepted there instead. Please be aware that if you meet the conditions of your first choice then this will invalidate your insurance place. This option is not available for applicants pursuing postgraduate level courses.

3. Decline

Once you have chosen your firm and insurance choices you must decline all other offers.

Postgraduate Applications

Applicants pursuing postgraduate level courses can either accept or decline their offer. They can do this using the University of Lincoln online application system, or, if the application was made through an agent or partner, by emailing the International Admissions Team at intadmissions@lincoln.ac.uk.
