Your Offer Guide

What to do once you receive your postgraduate offer.

This guide explains everything you need to know about your Newcastle postgraduate study offer. We'll tell you what you need to do and when. If you have a question about your application, you can send us your enquiry via the Apply to Newcastle Portal - the application portal you applied through.

If you have applied to INTO Newcastle then you will receive offer information from them.

How we process your offer depends on whether you are an international student or a home student. This depends on your fee status and we'll confirm this in your offer document.

Your offer

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study at Newcastle University.

Conditional offer

You’ll receive a conditional offer if there are conditions that you need to meet before you can start your course.

The conditions of your offer are in the ‘Terms and Conditions of your Offer’ section of your offer document. You can also see the conditions of your offer in the application portal you applied through.

Uploading your supporting documents

To provide evidence that you’ve met the conditions of your offer, upload your supporting documents to the application portal you applied through. If you’re still studying, upload the documents as soon as they’re available.

If your supporting documents aren’t in English, you must provide certified English language translations.

When your documents demonstrate that you’ve met your offer conditions, your offer will become unconditional.

If you have just missed the conditions of your offer, we would encourage you to upload your results anyway. We will review your application and may still be able to give you a place on your chosen course.

Types of condition

Sponsored students

If you’re being sponsored, upload your formal sponsorship letter as soon as it’s available to the application portal you applied through. You don’t need to pay a deposit if you’re able to provide proof of sponsorship.

You can log in to the application portal you applied through to check on progress at any time. We check your documents as we receive them. As you meet each condition, the list of conditions in the application portal you applied through will update to reflect this.

Confirmation of a Place (COP)

When you’ve accepted your offer and met any conditions we’ll send you a Confirmation of a Place (COP) document. This is formal confirmation of your acceptance of the unconditional offer. 

Unconditional offer

If you receive an unconditional offer from us, you will be able to accept it through the application portal you applied through. 

If you've received a conditional offer from us, the status on the application portal you applied through will be updated to unconditional as soon as you've met the conditions of your offer.
