If we are not able to make you a full offer immediately, you may receive a conditional offer. A conditional offer means you must submit more information before we can send you a full offer. A letter of offer can be conditional due to many reasons – we’re waiting on your statement of purpose, we’re waiting on your results of an English exam, or transcripts. Whatever the reason is, we will contact you.

9. Accept your offer by signing the Letter of Offer and return to us with evidence of payment. We will send you an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) once we’ve received payment and an eCoE has been issued. Using this eCoE letter you can apply for a Student Visa.
