An unconditional offer is an offer that does not depend on an applicant getting specific results.
Some unconditional offers may have a ‘conditional’ element; for example, they only become unconditional if the applicant makes the university or college their ‘firm’ choice.
A related type of offer is the so-called ‘attainment offer’ or ‘incentivised offer’, where the offer is conditional but with very low requirements: for example, two E grades at A-level.
We are interested to hear:
- what types of unconditional offers are seen as appropriate or inappropriate
- how they might impact applicants’ decisions about where to study.
