University of Ulster offers withdrawn due to error


Almost 400 students who were told they were getting a place at the University of Ulster have had their unconditional offers withdrawn within hours as they were made in error.

Only the Jordanstown Campus School of Engineering is affected. Its dean, Prof Richard Millar, has apologised.

He said those affected would be contacted.

Speaking to BBC Radio Ulster's Nolan Show, Prof Millar said an email was sent to all applicants by mistake.
