Find out what happens next, whether you have successfully applied and accepted a conditional or unconditional offer to study with us, or have been offered a place through Clearing.
If you have any confirmation queries, you can also contact us and a friendly member of our admissions team will assist you.
Conditional or unconditional offer holders
If you're holding a conditional or unconditional offer from us, find out how to check the status of your application. If we are your firm choice and you meet or exceed the terms of your offer, you don’t need to contact us, you're in!
Confirmation is the process which takes place after the University receives your exam results. This is when we’ll confirm whether you’ve met the terms of your offer and whether we’re able to accept you on your chosen course.
Confirmation takes place once exam results are published, which for A levels taken in 2023 will be on 17 August. For other qualifications, such as IB and Access awards, exam results are published in July and we’ll confirm your place as soon as possible after this.
If you're an international student we may be waiting for further results beyond your main academic qualifications. Please visit UCAS to check the status of your application and see if there are any outstanding documents you need to send to us. You can also email the Admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
How to check you’ve been accepted
- If we are your firm choice and you meet or exceed the terms of your offer, you don't need to contact us, you’re in!
- Visit UCAS to view the status of your application.
- If you don't meet the terms of your offer for the course that you originally applied for, we may sometimes be able to make you an offer for an alternative course instead. You can accept or decline this offer via UCAS within five days, though we recommend doing this as soon as possible.
- If your offer has not been updated on UCAS, this may be because we're still carefully considering your application. Please keep checking UCAS for any updates. If you haven't received a decision by 12pm on results day, or if you have any other concerns about your offer, please contact us to speak to a friendly member of our admissions team.
- If we were your firm choice and have been unable to accept you on this occasion, you should check your status at your insurance choice. If you've not been accepted at your insurance choice, or if you would prefer to study at Liverpool, you can apply for a different course with us through Clearing. Please see our Clearing pages for details of course vacancies, entry requirements and how to apply.
- Please see our Appeals page for further information if you're appealing your results.
If you're holding a conditional or unconditional offer from us prior to Clearing, or applied elsewhere and now want to study at Liverpool, find out how to make changes to your offer of a place.
- Change to Liverpool – if you accepted a conditional or unconditional offer from another university and now wish to study at Liverpool, please visit our Clearing pages for information about course vacancies, entry requirements and how to apply.
- Change to a different course – if you previously accepted an offer from us but would like to change to a different course, you’ll need to complete our confirmation change request form. We’ll try to accommodate requests where possible but this is not guaranteed.
- Request deferred entry – please complete our confirmation change request form to request deferred entry to 2024. You can also use this form if you previously asked to defer but now wish to revert to a 2023 start. We’ll try to accommodate requests where possible but this is not guaranteed.
- Decline a place at Liverpool - if you no longer wish to take up your place at Liverpol, you can log into UCAS and follow the guidance there on self-releasing into Clearing.
- Withdraw from UCAS – please email email@example.com (UK applicants) or firstname.lastname@example.org (international applicants) with the subject line 'Withdraw'. Please include your UCAS ID number in the email. If you request a withdrawal, you will not be able to apply for any vacancies through Clearing for this year and any places/offers that you hold will be void.
Clearing offer holders
If you’ve received a Clearing offer from us and would like to accept it, you'll need to complete a few simple steps by the deadline given in your offer email.
To confirm your acceptance of our Clearing offer, you'll need to:
- Log on to UCAS Hub to add a Clearing choice, entering the institution and course details.
- Under 'University or college' add L41 – The University of Liverpool.
- If you can’t see your chosen course as being available via UCAS Clearing, you should be able to manually type in the course code when you come to add your Clearing choice. A helpful guide on how to add a Clearing choice can be found on the UCAS website. If you have any problems, contact UCAS on 0371 468 0468.
- If you're still unable to add your Clearing course choice it may be because UCAS is being updated. If this happens then it may take up to four hours before you'll be able to add your choice. If you're still unable to add your Clearing choice after this time then please contact us via email at email@example.com.
- Once you've added your Clearing course choice please complete the other required details and submit your choice.
Accepting a Clearing offer may sometimes be described as 'referring' yourself to a university.
If you don’t think you'll be able to accept our Clearing offer by the deadline in your offer email, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension. Please use the email subject line 'Clearing offer extension'. We’ll review your request and email to confirm whether we can extend the deadline.
If you've received a Clearing offer from us and would like to make changes, you can email us to request a change.
To request a change to a Clearing offer you're holding from us, please email email@example.com as soon as possible. We'll do our best to help but can't guarantee that we'll be able to accommodate your request.
All offers of places through Clearing are to start this year. Unfortunately, this means you won't be able to defer a Clearing offer to 2024.
Keeping your contact details up to date
Whether you're a conditional, unconditional or Clearing offer holder, it's important to ensure that your contact details are up to date.
If your contact details change, please log in to to UCAS and update your records. This will ensure we can keep you in the loop with any important updates about your application.
