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. This is available until 2 September 2022.
- You should only use this button if you no longer wish to take up your place at your firm choice, and you have spoken to your university or college and/or an adviser at your school/centre.
- If you want to remain at the same university or college, but swap your course, you must to speak to your university or college in the first instance. This is because 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.
