Join the British Council, UCAS, the University of the West of Scotland and Northumbria University on Wednesday, February 21 for the fourth and final webinar in a series to support counsellors through the admissions process for UK universities and colleges. At this point in the year, most students will begin to receive offers from their chosen universities. In this webinar, we will talk about the difference between conditional and unconditional offers and the rules around accepting offers. We will outline the commitments on both sides, from the university and from the student, so you can be confident in the advice you give. A representative from Northumbria University will also be taking part in the session to provide their perspective on the topics raised. Ahead of the webinar, please email any specific questions or topics you would like covered to Jenna.Hartsell@britishcouncil.org.
