Navigating your UK Graduate Admission Offer

Over the years, we have had students come to us to help them navigate their UK Graduate admissions offers.  Once their offer letters are forwarded to them, our team will get to work accepting the offers and analysing the payment structure. Understandably, not everyone is tech-savvy and as such, we have put together the steps you need to follow to navigate your way after you get an offer of admission in case you want to do it yourself.

  1. The Admission stage 

At this stage,  you have sent in your application, depending on which university you have chosen, you’d have to wait for some months depending on your application and individual circumstances because each application is treated on its merits.

  1. The Offer stage

At this stage, the university has sent in their congratulatory mail informing you that you scaled through the admission and the admissions team has found you worthy to be a student at their institution. At this stage, an offer letter would be attached and, you’ll be required to accept your offer. 


  1. Conditional offers
  2. Unconditional offers

Conditional offers are contingent upon the fulfilment of certain conditions, usually academic, 

An Unconditional offer on the other hand is made without any further requirements, indicating that the student has already met all the criteria for admission. 

Both types of offers are used by universities to communicate their decision to admit a student to a particular program.

  1. Accepting your offer

For every admission process, you will be given an application login details unique to you and on your profile, you can navigate your way to accept your offer and fulfil your conditions. For most institutions, you are required to accept your offer within 14 days and, failure to do so within the speculated time will result in a withdrawal.

  1. Fulfilling the conditions contingent on your offer 

Once your offer has been accepted and you have fulfilled the condition of your offer, it’ll be under review for a few days and after that, you can proceed to the pay your tuition deposit section.

  1. Paying your tuition deposit

Depending on your unique situation, you can choose to pay your tuition in naira, pounds or any currency of your choice. Through Debit Card, Flywire or whichever channel suits you.

  1. After your tuition deposit has been made, then you will get to receive your CAS via email. 


CAS stands for Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies. It is a unique reference number issued by universities and colleges in the United Kingdom to students who have been offered a place on a program that is longer than 6 months in which the applicant would require a Tier 4 (General) student visa to study in the UK


The CAS contains important information, including:

  1. Personal details of the student, such as name and date of birth.
  2. Details of the course the student has been accepted onto, including the course title, level of study, and start and end dates.
  3. Information about the institution issuing the CAS, including its sponsorship license number.
  4. Any conditions that the student must meet before they can enrol on the course, such as payment of tuition fees or submission of academic transcripts.

Understandably, the current exchange rate and the UK Government’s policy on dependants seem to have derailed a lot of international students from towing the UK study pathway. 

However, all that is required from you is adequate and effective planning.
