Government calls for university admissions review

Universities UK response to government calls for university admissions review.

In response to the Education Secretary’s calls for a review into the use of conditional unconditional offers by universities, Universities UK said:

“There are clear benefits for students in universities being able to use a variety of offer making practices that reflect the individual student’s circumstances and potential.

“As with all offers to study at university, universities must be able to explain why and how they award unconditional offers with conditions attached. We are already working together with UCAS, reviewing existing guidance and gaining a better understanding of how these offers are being used. This work will help inform the review and includes surveying universities to understand how good practice is being adopted, and holding forums to discuss best practice.

“It is essential that admissions processes and policies are fair and transparent, underpinned by clear criteria and in the best interest of students.”
