If you no longer want to go to your firm choice, you can use the ‘Decline your place’ button in your application.
- From 5 July, if you are holding a firm unconditional place, you can release yourself into Clearing, by using the ‘Decline your place’ button in your application.
- You should only use this button if you no longer wish to take up your place at your firm choice. If you are unsure, you should speak to your university or college and/or an adviser at your school/centre to discuss options.
- If you want to remain at the same university or college, but swap your course, you must speak to your university or college in the first instance. Using the button in your application will mean any arrangements you have made for accommodation or scholarships will also be cancelled.
- If you use the button and complete the steps, your place will be declined and your contract with the university or college will be cancelled and you will lose your place – therefore, only use this button if you are sure you no longer want your place.
