I have been offered a course but I am still waiting to hear about another one which I would prefer to do. What should I do?
All offers are given a time frame to reply by. In this instance if you feel you would like to pursue the first course offered, if you haven't yet received an offer for your preferred course, please accept your offer and pay the acceptance fee by the date specified. If at a later date you are offered your preferred course we can then switch your acceptance to the new offer.
No. If you have already accepted an offer and paid the €300 once, we can transfer this acceptance fee to the new course you wish to accept. Therefore the acceptance fee will only ever be paid once.
You should follow the instructions in your offer email. Acceptances and payment of €300 deposit fee should be made by following the instructions provided in your offer email, in this case payment should be made online by Visa, Laser, Mastercard or American Express. You will need your login details - username and password (see above 'Application Queries') in order to accept your offer and pay your acceptance fee.
