Offer terms and conditions

Edge Hill University offer terms and conditions: In addition to any conditions listed on your offer letter/email and/or advised via UCAS (and its associated services), the following information forms part of the conditions of any offer of a place on a course at Edge Hill University.

University regulations

In accepting any offer of a place with us, you are agreeing to comply with the provisions of our Regulations, Rules, Codes, Conditions and Policies which apply to our students. 

Unconditional offers

The term ‘unconditional offer’ is part of the national admissions terminology, and relates only to the academic conditions of the offer. All other conditions (as detailed in your offer, within our Regulations, or communicated to you via UCAS and its associated services) will continue to apply. ‘unconditional’ offers are made on the basis of the academic qualifications you have presented to us. This will be either on your application, or, if you applied during Clearing, on the basis of the information you provided to us via the telephone or the internet. You must provide documentary evidence of the qualifications you have indicated to us and on which our decision to offer a place has been based.

We reserve the right to verify qualifications with the awarding institution. This offer, the contract you will enter into by accepting it and membership of Edge Hill University remain subject to our receiving documentary evidence of your relevant qualifications. If you fail to meet this requirement, the offer may be withdrawn and your contract with, and membership of, Edge Hill University may be terminated. Any delay or failure by Edge Hill University over the exercise of its rights shall not impair or affect the rights or waive the requirement.

Programme and course changes

Our programmes and courses are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may necessitate alteration to, or cancellation of, programmes or courses. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students. In such circumstances we will keep you informed of any material changes and take reasonable steps to minimise any disruption which may result from such a change. 

Support for disabled students

If you think that you are likely to require any support because of a disability/health condition and/or a specific learning difficulty while you are on the course, you are advised to contact our Inclusion team.

All requests for support will be considered in line with the criteria for ‘reasonable adjustments’ referred to in the Equality Act 2010. It is essential to contact the Inclusion Team as soon as possible in order to put your support in place. Please refer to the Admissions Policy for further information.

Right to cancel and duration of contract – distance selling regulations

The University’s admissions process is subject to consumer protection law. The agreement between you and the University is formed when you accept the offer of a place.

You are reminded of your right to cancel the contract (where appropriate) under the above regulations and associated legislation within 14 days of formally accepting the offer, without the need to give reason. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (eg by letter, email, or via UCAS).

For the purposes of the regulations it is necessary for us to confirm and for you to agree that the contract may not be performed within a thirty-day period beginning the day after you accept our offer of admission – it will be performed at the advertised dates – and that in some circumstances performance of the contract may commence during the cancellation period. Such commencement of performance of the contract does not affect your right to cancel within 14 days of formally accepting the offer without the need to give reason.

Proper law and jurisdiction

In accepting an offer of a place at Edge Hill University, you are agreeing with us that the resulting contract between us shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and you submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England.

Fee status

Most UK students are classed as home students and may receive support towards fees and living costs (dependent on family or personal income). However, if you have lived overseas, or are not a British Citizen, you may be liable for the full fees at the overseas student rate. You will be required to inform Edge Hill University of any information that may affect your fee status. It is your responsibility to determine whether or not you will receive any financial support. Further information and advice on tuition fees, scholarships, bursaries and financial support can be found on our website.

Data protection

All personal information obtained by us both from you and other sources will be used to process this offer. As such we may share the information with UCAS, your exam boards, student support assessment body, the Student Loans Company and (in the case of international applicants) the British Council, UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) or other agency. We may pass this information as appropriate to these and other outside organisations, including the police, government, and other institutions in order to prevent or detect fraud. It may also be used by us to undertake research or to plan or improve our services. In addition, we may advise you of other study opportunities and services provided by us and partner organisations.
