Swapping offers and reapplying
My daughter applied for midwifery this year and was rejected from Northumbria for 2019. However, Teeside have offered her a place for 2020 . Can she still reapply for Northumbria for next year or will she have to reject Teeside to be able to reapply to Northumbria for 2020?
Your daughter will not be able to re-apply through UCAS whilst holding an offer. So, she would have to decide to decline the Teesside offer in order to re-apply to Northumbria in the 2020 UCAS cycle. I think it would be worth your daughter contacting Northumbria now and asking what the chances are of her getting a place in August this year if her results are good. (If she was offered a place in Clearing she could change her mind and withdraw from the Teesside offer using Clearing self-release.) She could also ask the university about re-applying for 2020.
