Unconditional Offers

USW Unconditional Offer Scheme 2019

The USW Unconditional Offer Scheme 2019 identifies students whose UCAS application, academic performance and predicted results show they have the ability to succeed on their chosen course. Such applicants will be made an unconditional offer of a place on that course.

Eligible courses

We will consider students who have applied through UCAS to study a full time, undergraduate Honours degree starting in September 2019, based at one of the main University campuses. The following courses are not included in the scheme: 

  • Chiropractic
  • Nursing – all branches
  • Midwifery
  • Medical Sciences
  • Social Work

If the course you have applied for requires an interview, you still need to attend this interview before we can consider making you an offer.

Academic requirements

You must be predicted at least 112 points (equivalent to grades BBC) at A level or equivalent from a maximum of three qualifications.

The following Level 3 qualifications will be taken into consideration when making unconditional offers: A levels, BTEC, Welsh Baccalaureate, Access, Cambridge Technical, International Baccalaureate, Scottish Highers, AQA, CACHE, City & Guilds, Foundation Studies Art & Design, NCFE, OCR, Pearson, Rock School, Irish Leaving Certificate, UAL, VTCT, WJEC Diploma & Certificate. 

We will consider results of examinations you have already taken, as well as predicted results for those you are studying now. However, GCSE results do not form part of this scheme, unless you have applied for a course that has a statutory GCSE entry requirement.

Predicted results must be included on your UCAS application for the University to consider you under this scheme. 

Does this mean I can stop studying?

Not at all. An unconditional offer considers your academic profile, which we believe you would want to protect and enhance. The grades you achieve will remain with you for the rest of your life, including on your CV and job applications. Your current studies also lay the foundation for university, improving your knowledge and study skills, making you more likely to succeed in future. 

What if I don’t meet my predicted grades?

If this does happen, please don’t worry as your offer of a place will be unaffected. If you accept the University of South Wales as your first choice, we will send you enrolment and induction information in the summer.

EU applicants

EU applicants will be considered on an individual basis if they have predicted grades in line with the equivalent UK qualifications. For further information, please contact: international.admissions@southwales.ac.uk

International applicants

The Unconditional Offer Scheme is not available for international applicants.


All applicants are treated equally in applications for University Halls of Residence. There is no priority application process for unconditional offer holders.
