Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has called on the University of Ulster to immediately clarify to individual students whether they have or haven’t been offered places at the campus.
His comment follows the revelation that more than 400 students were told via e-mail that they were getting a place at the university only to have the offers withdrawn hours later.
Mr McElduff said,
“Not only has this caused immense disappointment amongst the students but also created uncertainty and confusion as to who is actually going to be offered a place at the university.
“The University of Ulster needs to clarify to the students immediately at to which offer is genuine and make sure this will not be allowed to happen again.”
