    I've sent off my ucas application at the start of October and have now received 4 offers from universities but not one from Oxford Brookes (the one i REALLY want to go to). I haven't even received any information or email saying they have received my offer yet either and its been about 3 months

    I was just wondering if anybody knows how brookes is working in terms of the applications this year.

    Ive applied for a undergraduate course in business and marketing management.

    Any information would be great as its really starting to get me worried and put me on edge at the moment

    this is strange actually, I have sent my application like more than a week ago, today I have recieved both a UCAS letter and email form Brookes that they want me for the interview online via Skype. I have applied for urban planning.

    Don't worry you'll hear from them the moment you probably least expect it. Good luck

    Thats really no time at all, you sent it on the 2nd, so you have to factor in the fact the uni was closed for 2.5 weeks over the christmas holiday so you have only given them a month if that, as term has not even started yet, i doubt they will be on top of all there applications by now. Just hold tight, these things take time.

    You wonder why you stressed over UCAS when other things come in up life.

    I sent mine off on the 19th November and last week monday I heard from them asking for an interview, if your really unsure send them an e-mail explaining that you sent off your application and wanted to know if they have received it. The politest way possible of asking them to hurry the hell up!
    Good luck!

    To be honest doing this they are only going to reply with the same pre written stuff that they will send to everyone (lots of people will be doing this) even if they do reply if im honest. It is most likely to just say yes we have your application and be patient. They do have alot to go through after all.

    true, if your lucky they'll actually reply stating when they'll get back to you, i did this in my last application and i actually got replies saying when they would update the UCAS track

    Ha Brookes are not known for their organisation in some areas however :rolleyes:

    Nothing to lose i guess going to take all of about 5 mins for possible peace of mind. I need to keep on reminding myself i was in this position 2 years ago :p:

    Yup I can tell that Brookes doesn't acquire the exact efficiency as other Uni's! :laugh:
    yup nothing much to lose but I guess it does depend on where your applying..

    I've set up my skype interview on Wensday, not bad tho.
    I wonder why it takes so quick with me, should I be worried as it was only 2 weeks and they contact me, and the others are waiting months.? or is it a good sign that they actually consider me for an offer.?

    each department does its own applications their way. so that tends to be why there is a delay

    It's definitely school and department dependent; you'll find that the School of Health and Social Care are generally very good at keeping in contact, posting things out, paperwork etc. Then again, I'm pretty sure we're one of the smaller schools at Brookes
