How do I request that a condition on my offer be waived or changed

It is not usually possible to change a condition once the department has set it. However, if you have a good reason you may submit your request and the department will consider it.

You must give your reasons for asking that the condition be altered, and provide information to support your request. If you are simply concerned that you have not/will not reach the required marks in your degree condition you should wait until your final results are available and use the new information form to submit them. The selectors will then consider whether or not to confirm your offer.

If you are notifying us that your current teaching, exams or results are being disrupted due to Covid-19, you must include the URL of the page where your institution confirms this.

Condition waiver requests will only be considered if you feel that you already meet the requirement in another way, for example; if you have been required to follow a summer school course, but feel that you have already covered the material in previous study, you should provide the details of the syllabus that you have already covered. We will also consider requests to change how a condition is expressed if it does not match the mark scheme of your university. In this case, you should send details of how the marks at your university are calculated and the form in which your final degree grade will be expressed.

English language condition waivers will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. If you have taken the test but not achieved our required scores, you should arrange to re-take the test rather than requesting a waiver. Exceptions are in the case of imminent deadlines: we will not consider requests to waive the English requirement for CAS purposes until the end of June.

Please do not use this form to submit documents to us in order to meet conditions of your offer. These documents should be sent to us via our new information form.
