University of Ulster offers extra places after email error

The University of Ulster has said it will honour the offer it made to those students affected by an admissions email error, provided they have a full set of their examination results.

On Friday it emerged 370 students had had their unconditional offers withdrawn, after receiving emails of acceptance by mistake.

Only 180 places were available for the engineering courses at the university's Jordanstown campus.

The dean of its faculty of computing and engineering, Professor Richard Millar, told BBC Radio 5 live's Stephen Nolan on Saturday that the university felt it had a "moral obligation" towards the affected students.
