Meeting the offer conditions
These are all the possible conditions of an offer and how to fulfil them. Please check your offer carefully and see how to fulfil the conditions that are outlined for you.
Conditions of Offer
The possible offer conditions are: payment of deposit, confirming details of official sponsor, academic conditions of offer, ATAS clearance and the English Language requirement
Payment of 10% Deposit
Once you have accepted the offer, you will be required to pay 10% deposit of the tuition fees for the current academic year. An invoice will be sent automatically within approximately five days of accepting the offer. The deposit should be paid within 30 days of the date of invoice not the date of the offer. We may be able to request an extension to the due date of the invoice but the deposit requirement may not be waived. Only CDT-funded students are exempt from paying the deposit. CDT-funded students who receive an invoice or has this listed as a condition should notify the CDT office.
Confirming the details of the sponsor
CDT-funded students should provide the details of sponsor as: TSM-CDT, Physics Department, South Kensington.
Students funded by a third party should provide the details on e-service and send a confirmation of the sponsorship.
Purely self- funded students do not need to provide any evidence but do need to tick the box saying they will be responsible for payment of tuition fees.
Academic conditions of offer
To fulfil the academic conditions, you are required to send your original degree certificate to registry. Students who are undertaking studies in the UK or Ireland and are not able to provide the original certificate immediately after completion may use the statement of qualifications to fulfil this condition. The statement must be signed and stamped by the registry in your institution and not the department. In both cases the original documents should be sent by registered post quoting your CID number (the number preceded by 00 which was generated upon the submission of your application) to the following address:
