So you’ve just been accepted to university. What happens next?

You’ll have checked Track, so you’ll know at this point which university you’re going to, but what do you do now…


First you’ll receive a confirmation letter in Track (UCAS). This letter may contain instructions to send off something or confirm your contact details etc. (it’s likely to vary dependant on the university), so obviously you’ll need to action the instructions, if any.

Otherwise, the university will be in touch if they need anything specific from you, like proof of your qualifications.


Go to the university website and book your accommodation if you’re planning on living in halls (student accommodation). Otherwise you’ll need to arrange privately rented accommodation.


If you have student finance arranged, you shouldn’t need to do anything now. If you have any worries or questions, login to your finance account and there will FAQs to help.
