Anyway, this is what the email from Imperial looks like:
19th March 2008
I am pleased to inform you that you have been made an offer for your chosen course in Biochemistry or Biotechnology. The full details of this offer should now be on UCAS track.
I am attaching copies of our Life Sciences Brochures which outline the different degree options available to you. They also provide some information on the excellent teaching and research facilities Imperial provides all its students. Imperial College is consistently placed as one of the top 3 Universities in the UK and is currently the fifth best University in the World. We have the best staffing levels in Britain, with fewer than nine students to each academic and we focus as much attention on our teaching pedigree as we do on maintaining our outstanding research reputation. Students are taught in small tutorial groups ensuring plenty of personal contact with the lecturers and our large academic departments offer superb study facilities, including their own departmental libraries, good computing facilities and large, well-equipped laboratories. We also guarantee accommodation for all our first year undergraduates.
Please mark all correspondence with your UCAS number and please do not change your email address over the course of the next year as most of our correspondence will be sent electronically. If you do change your email you must inform UCAS, the Imperial College Registry and myself immediately or you may find you have missed highly important information which will prevent you from taking up your place should you meet our offer. The same applies for changes to postal addresses.
Finally, we would like to invite you to our departmental open day on Wednesday 2nd April. This is our last Open Day of the year and will give you a chance to view our excellent facilities first-hand and meet our academic staff and current students who will give you an insight into the benefits life at Imperial can bring you. These days are incredibly popular so I would advise you to book as soon as possible. Please respond by email to email@example.com
It may be that you have already applied for a place on one of our open days through our website, if so please ignore this invitation.
You will be sent this letter via email only but, if you do require a copy to be posted to you please let me know and it can be arranged.
For further information on our courses and our admissions process please visit the Faculty of Natural Sciences Website at http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/naturalsciences/courses/ug/
Please continue to check our website as we will be adding to it throughout the year.
We look forward to hearing from you.
