Your situation: Edge Hill is my insurance choice

We’ve outlined below the different scenarios you might find yourself in when you receive your results if you applied to Edge Hill University through UCAS and made us your insurance choice.

Scenario 1: I accepted an offer from Edge Hill University as my insurance choice. I haven’t received my results yet but I now want to study at Edge Hill instead of my firm choice.

  • If you are still to receive your results, please get in touch with our Clearing team to discuss your options.

Scenario 2: I’ve met or exceeded the conditions of the offer I accepted from Edge Hill University as my insurance choice, as well as meeting the conditions of my firm choice elsewhere.

Scenario 3: I’ve met or exceeded the conditions of the offer I accepted from Edge Hill University as my insurance choice but did not get the results I needed for my firm choice elsewhere.

  • If you meet or exceed the conditions of your insurance choice at Edge Hill University but do not meet the conditions of your firm choice elsewhere, your place at your firm choice may still be confirmed, particularly if you only narrowly miss out on the grades or UCAS Tariff points required. You should refer to UCAS Track on the day you receive your results for clarification.
  • If your firm choice decide to accept you but you want to change your mind and come to Edge Hill University, please contact our Clearing team, ensuring that you have your UCAS Personal ID number to hand, and we will be happy to look into your options.
  • If your place at your firm choice is not confirmed but you meet the conditions of an insurance choice offer from Edge Hill University, your place with us will be automatically confirmed through UCAS. Our Admissions Office will also send you a Confirmation of Place notification.

Scenario 4: I’ve not met the conditions of the offer I accepted from Edge Hill University as my insurance choice.
