Being offered a place and accepting the offer

If you are offered a place, it will either be a conditional or an unconditional offer. 

  • Unconditional offer: this means you have satisfied all the necessary academic conditions of entry. 
  • Conditional offer: this means you will be required to satisfy one or more academic conditions of entry prior to enrolment. 

Conditional offers will be stated clearly in the formal offer letter and may include, for example, obtaining a second-class honours degree, or passing an English language test, or passing an entrance test. 

All offers - unconditional and conditional - may also have non-academic conditions attached to the offer: for example, you may be asked to provide a copy of your degree certificate if you have already obtained this qualification. These conditions will be clearly stated in your formal offer letter. You should respond to your offer via the 'Manage My Applications' section of My Birkbeck to either accept or decline the offer being made to you. 

If you accept the offer, and subject to you meeting all conditions of entry (academic and non-academic) as stated in your formal offer letter, we will send you information to enable you to enrol, including information on payment of fees. 

We aim to open enrolment in June for students commencing their programme of study in October. You must also provide appropriate documentation to confirm your identity and details of the qualifications you hold.
