Rejected from top choice uni


As a french student, I got offers via Ucas for Scotland.But the university I prefer - Heriot Watt - didn't accept me.

Can I, without UCAS, show them my motivation, and try to convice them?
By directly calling them or contacting by mail.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Jack,

You can try to find out why they rejected you. If it was for academic reasons they will not change their offer until you can present more qualifications.

Good luck,
