    Those of you who are not applying for on-campus accommodation, how (or more importantly, when?) are you planning on sorting out your accommodation? I've got a conditional offer and don't really want to sign up for anything accommodation-wise before I know for sure that I get in, but I won't be in the UK over the summer so I don't really know what to do. The thought if leaving it until August is a bit off-putting!

    Hi

    If it says on their online system that they haven't processed your papers, that might not be the case. They requested more information for my application when I applied. I subsequently received an offer months ago but that change still sits in the under review section.

    If you're worried (like I was), ring the office and ask (like I did) and they'll probably tell you everything is fine

    oh, really!:confused: It shows that half of my papers have been checked, but the rest not yet...I think you're right, I should probably ring them and tell them about my situation. I feel like i've been waiting for so long and Edinburgh is like my first choice..It's been driving my nuts.

    From what I can tell, they have a number of review dates each year. I got my application in in January and heard back within 3 weeks. My referees were only given a week to complete, so I’m assuming that’s because a review date was coming. You’re probably just waiting so long because of timing i.e., the next review date. Again, when you call ask them. They’re really helpful and gave me an estimate of when I would know.

    P.s. GOOD LUCK!

    Ah that's cool. Where did you apply for? I've just (well, yesterday) sent off an application for Ascham Court, Roxburgh Place and Richmond Place. Really wanting the Ascham Court, it looks fantastic. I'd have preferred catered, but they don't offer catered for 12 months which is what I need. I've also heard some pretty dodgy things about the food in JMMC but I guess we'll have to see.
    I applied to West Mains Road, Blackwood Crescent and Causeway side, since these seem to be closest to the King's Buildings, where most of my classes will be. I've been living in a self-catered accommodation here for the past 4 years so I think I should be fine having to take care of my food myself! (although it would be nice to not have to cook for a whole year!)

    I have an offer to read for the LLM in International Law next year, conditional on a 2.1 in my undergrad. I was wondering about accommodation as well - I don't get my degree classification until mid-July, and really don't want to tempt fate by applying for accommodation before then, but if I leave it, will I be too late to try and get uni accommodation?

    And does anyone know the best places to start looking for shared private rents?

    Ah yes, I've been self-catered for 3 years now. The only reason I wanted catered is because of the excessive amount of time I plan on spending in the lab, but oh well. Never-mind I guess!

    Hi guys!
    I applied for an LLM at the University of Edinburgh on April 30. I really hope to receive an offer because it is my first choice. Did anyone else apply in the same period for an LLM at Edinburgh?

    Try easyroommate (although you'll have to pay to actually be able to contact people), or gumtree.

    When did you apply for the European Law LLM?

    I didn't receive any offer yet. I sent an e-mail to know the average time they need to consider an application, but they didn't reply.

    I applied just before Christmas and heard back at the beginning of January, so just a few weeks but I assume the University would have been closed for a week or so over Christmas.

    Have both your referees sent their references? I had to remind one of mine so perhaps that is the delay?

    Yes, both my referees have already sent their references.
    Just another question for you. Has your "myEd" been update after you applied for the LLM? I mean, in my case there is no action required by me but none of Clearance Check details have been completed yet.

    While I was writing here, the Postgraduate Office replied as follows: "I’m still screening applications received in April and it may be some weeks before I get to yours".

    Well, it will be a looong wait!

    Hi guys,

    I will return to Edinburgh in September 2012 to start the MRes in Medical Anthropology and I'm currently looking to get accommodation sorted - does anyone have a spare room to offer, or is anyone looking to get flatmates together?

    Anyone interested, let me know!

    Ta,
    Heather
