Two of our BU staff have contributed to the UCAS good practice guides about Unconditional Offers – much in the press recently. Jon Williams, Head of Admissions at BU contributed to one of the guides with an anonymous case study on how to use UOs appropriately and professionally in support of applicants. Dr Michelle Morgan, Associate Dean Student Experience in the Faculty of Media and Communication was invited by UCAS in September to be part of their working group to develop good practice guides for unconditional offers for the sector. Michelle received the invitation as a result of her national and international reputation on supporting student transitions.
The good practice guides were launched by UCAS last week at the seminar where Michelle was asked to give the keynote.
UUK have provided support for the documents by saying “Those universities making unconditional offers should review and monitor their use against Ucas’ recently updated good practice guidelines, ensuring they do not prevent students from performing to the best of their ability.”
