This information should help you to address any offer conditions you may have and guide you to the next steps once your conditions have been satisfied.
It is important that you address the conditions of your offer immediately to have your place confirmed as quickly as possible. Failure to do so could result in delays at enrolment which would also delay your Student Finance payments.
Your offer letter will itemise all of the conditions of your offer. Your place is not confirmed until you have met all of the conditions of your offer. If you have any outstanding offer conditions at the start of the course, you will be able to attend the early sessions however you will not be allowed to enrol until all of the offer conditions have been satisfied.
Sending your qualifications
If we have asked you to send us some of your qualifications, please be aware that we need to see your original certificates – scanned or photocopied certificates cannot be accepted.
You should not wait until enrolment to send your qualifications to us, as this will delay your full enrolment onto the course.
Verify your certificates
You can send your certificates to:
Admissions Office, Edge Hill University, St Helens Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 4QP.
We recommend that you use a recorded delivery service and we will return them to you in the same way.
If you choose to send your qualifications by post or email please ensure you include the below:
- date of birth
- UCAS personal ID number
- course applied for
Please also note that you are a clearing applicant.
If you would prefer to bring your certificates to us in-person, you can do so any weekday between 9am-5pm. Admissions is based in the Student Admin Centre (SAC).
Receipt of a satisfactory reference
If you have already applied through UCAS we may already have a satisfactory reference for you. However if you haven’t applied through UCAS this year, you will need to arrange for a reference to be sent to us to add to your application.
If you have been in education within the last five years, we would normally expect to have an academic reference for you, so if this is the case you should ask one of your former teachers or tutors to provide a reference for you. If you have not been in education within the last five years, an appropriate employment/experience reference could be accepted. Your referee should not be a friend or family member.
Sending the reference
Your referee can email the reference to: [email protected].
Please be aware that references should be sent from a professional email account. References from personal accounts (e.g. yahoo, gmail etc) will not be accepted.
You can ask your referee to send the reference by post to: Admissions Office, Edge Hill University, St Helens Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 4QP.
Please be aware that references should be sent on company letterhead paper with a signature and contact details provided. References sent on plain paper or without a signature will not be accepted.
Medical and DBS checks
You will need to have satisfactory medical and DBS clearance before you can enrol on the course. The next steps regarding your Medical and DBS checks will be sent to you by email.
It is vitally important that you do not delay with submitting these checks. Any delays in submitting the checks could delay your enrolment onto the course and your student finance payments. Please refer to the information accompanying your offer letter for full details and guidance.
Referring your UCAS clearing application to us
If you have a 2022 UCAS application, you will need to refer your UCAS Clearing Application through your UCAS application to us for your place to be confirmed.
