Accepting your Masters place

How to accept your place on one of our Masters courses.


When you have been made an offer, there are a few things that you need to do to accept your place. The final decision on your offer will be made by the Master's Admissions Office, who will contact you directly.

To confirm your place you need to complete and return the acceptance form along with your deposit payment of £1,000 on or before the deadline date stated in your offer letter.

We ask for the deposit as competition for places is high and there is limited availability.  The deposit amount is then deducted from your tuition fees when you register on the course.

Once we receive your acceptance form and payment, your Admissions Officer will contact you by email to confirm your place.

If you have any financial concerns please contact the Admissions team who will be able to discuss any financial assistance opportunities that may be available to you. You can contact the team at +44 (0) 161 275 7254.

Deposit information for Accounting and Finance courses

If you are an international student applying for one of the courses listed below and need a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) for a Tier 4 Visa, you will need to pay a second deposit payment of £1,000 by 1 April 2021. It can be paid at any time before this date.

  • MSc Accounting
  • MSc Accounting and Finance
  • MSc Finance
  • MSc Quantitative Finance

Payment of the second deposit confirms your place on your course and the amount goes towards your tuition fee. If the deadline date for accepting your place is after 1 April 2021, you will need to pay both deposit amounts (total £2,000) when you accept your offer.

How to pay the deposit

We accept MasterCard, VISA, Delta, Maestro/Switch, Visa Electron, Solo and JCB. If your payment is successful you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of your payment. Please include your ID or application number before making your payment, or we may be unable to link this to your application.

Pay your deposit by debit or credit card >>

To pay by bank transfer, please refer to the information printed on your Masters Acceptance Form.

Refund policy

The deposit is non-refundable, except in the following situations:

  • You fail to meet the conditions of your offer
  • You are refused a visa or entry clearance to enter the UK
  • Your application for government funding has been unsuccessful

Evidence must be provided before a refund will be processed under any of the circumstances above.

If your offer specifies an English Language condition which you do not meet, the Admissions Team will require the official certificate of an English Language test taken after the date of the offer as evidence that you have attempted to meet your offer conditions. The English language test certificate provided with your application documents is not accepted as proof that you have attempted to meet your offer conditions as it will predate the offer.

If your offer specifies an academic condition, the Admissions Team will require official university documentation showing that you have not met the condition from the institution at which you studied as evidence.

The Admissions Team reserves the right to refuse a refund of your deposit that does not meet with the requirements outlined above.
