What to do next

Congratulations on your offer. On this page you’ll find practical steps about what to do next to get a confirmed place at NTU. You’re now also eligible to apply for one of our scholarships – what are you waiting for?

Understanding your offer

Your offer to study with us will be either conditional or unconditional.

The majority of offers for international students are conditional. Here’s what that means:

Conditional offer

You must meet some requirements (criteria) – such as demonstrating that you have achieved the required grades – before you can be officially accepted on to the course.

Unconditional offer

You’ve met all the requirements (criteria) and can secure your place on the course if you accept your offer within 4 weeks of receiving it.

Follow our step by step advice below to accept and follow up on your offer.

Step by step advice

  • How to accept your offer

    As soon as you receive your offer, please read it carefully and accept it.

    Accepting your conditional offer means that you’ve reserved a place on the course.

    It does not mean the place is guaranteed – you’ll still need to meet the conditions of the offer.

    It is simple to accept your offer, you do this online either:

  • Meeting the conditions of your offer

    The most common examples of conditions (requirements) for international students are:

    • English language
    • providing qualifications and other documents
    • making an advanced payment

    Upload any documents you have that can support your application as soon as you have them.

    These include qualification transcripts and certificates from your school or university which show your grades, including your English language certificate (e.g. IELTS) if this is one of your conditions.

    Taking action to meet your conditions as soon as you can is really important if you’re applying for a visa.

    This is because you’ll need a CAS (Certificate of Acceptance for Studies) number from us before you apply for the visa.

    We can’t produce a CAS number until you’ve met your conditions and uploaded your supporting documents.

    Check your email – the one you used in your application – regularly for messages from us.

    What to do

  • Making your advanced payment

    Usually the final condition (requirement) you'll need to meet is to make your advanced payment to the University and to upload a copy of your passport.

    You can make your advanced payment through Western Union or through our online store.

    You can upload a copy of your passport on the applicant portal using the 'my documents' screen or email it to us applications@ntu.ac.uk if you’ve applied through UCAS. When we receive your advanced payment and all your supporting documents we'll make your offer unconditional which means you have a confirmed, guaranteed place on the course.

  • Preparing for your visa application

    If you’re applying for a visa you’ll need to plan carefully as it can take a lot longer than you expect.

    For a Tier 4 student visa, for example, one of the things you’ll need to do is show that you have enough money, and you’ll need to save this money in a bank account for at least 28 days before you apply.
