This period will be calculated from the date we receive formal notification through the University of Bath Applicant Tracker of your firm acceptance of your offer whether conditional or unconditional. You must notify us of your decision in writing (email or letter). A cancellation notice can be found at our cancelling your place webpage but you do not have to use this. If you wish to request a deferral to the next academic year, you should contact your employer in the first instance or speak to the academic department for advice.

The University may also consider accepting you in the event you have narrowly missed your offer or to accommodate mitigating circumstances. Further details can be found within the Admissions Policy.

You may be required to provide evidence of your identity before, at or after registration, as part of our responsibility to ensure that apprentices meet the eligibility requirements to undertake an apprenticeship.

You must give as an accurate educational history as requested, including all previous study and its location. If appropriate, we may also require details of employment and these must be accurate and verifiable. The offer and subsequent registration will be deemed null and void if you are found at any time to have misrepresented any aspect of your circumstances or we find that any aspect of your application is not your own work or not genuine.
If you receive a criminal conviction after an offer is made or a change in your circumstances means that you no longer meet your programme’s specific requirements, the University reserves the right to withdraw the offer of a place.
If you have particular support needs or disabilities which may affect your ability to undertake all or part of your programme of study, you are encouraged to disclose these and discuss them in full with the University’s Disability Advice Team, your Graduate School and relevant academic department.
