    Got a conditional (on the provision of original documents) offer for MSc Economics as well. Just need to look at the financial aspect of studying there now before making my decision. I do have a query though: Anyone have any idea if it's possible to cover your weekly expenditure via part-time jobs or is that simply not possible due to the work load of the Masters program?

    Just while everyone's on the topic of conditional offers... I've got a conditional (on the provision of mailing in an oridinal transcript) but I can't find anywhere with information on how to do so. Or do you have to accept the offer first and then provide the transcript? I don't want to accept just yet as I'm waiting to see if I get any other offers...
    Hey,

    I think you can accept your offer, but your offer is not confirmed until you send in the transcript. That's what I did I think- I accepted my offer in..... April? (maybe) but couldn't confirm it until July because of undergrad exam boards. If you send a stamped and addressed envelope they should send your transcript back. There should be information in your offer about how to confirm your place

    Cheers! As long as there's no rush I'll wait a while yet before accepting - it shouldn't affect whether or not I get a scholarship offer, right?

    Speaking of which, I'm going crazy waiting to see if I get a scholarship. Way too impatient. It's around late march that they give offers, huh?

    Hey there!
    I got a conditional to study MA in International Politics.
    Does anyone know by what date you need to state whether you accept the conditional offer or not? Is this binding? If you accept the offer and meet the conditions, can you still decide not to go? They don't require any deposit or anything...

    Hi, I think (I sent them an e-mail) that as far as they dont ask for any deposits then there is no deadline (exept if you still haven't decided during the last weeks before the program begins, where they will ask you if you intend to attend). Also there won't be any problem if you accept the offer but then you finally decide not to go.( I am also accepted at MSc in Statistics)

    Anyone who received this prior to an official offer letter?

    Yeah - I wish they would just send the official confirmation letter rather than this preliminary informal one.

    I received the full offer with conditions a week later.

    MSc Finance! See you in the Business School! I had a tour the other week and it is an incredible building.

    Does anyone know what date they announce international scholarship recipients? On the site I remember seeing something about late March, but in the letter of my conditional offer it says late April...

    The wait is driving me crazy.

    Also, is anyone else here applying for an international scholarship?

    There is just a condition to send the transcript (either a transcript or a attested copy)

    There was no preliminary offer and the I received the offer just 7 days after my second referee uploaded his recommendation and 3 weeks from the day I've submitted the application, so thumbs up to Warwick graduate admissions team.

    The only thing I'm anxious about right now is the accommodation. They don't usually allow visiting the campus outside of open days, which I won't be able to come for (I live outside of UK) so I'm in a bit of a bind atm.

    I got a conditional offer (pending results of my current undergraduate degree 90.1/100, luckily I have a 94.23/100 --I suppose that's the equilvalent of 1st class in the UK) for the MSc Finance and Behavioral Science.

    I already accepted the offer and counting down the days until the program starts!

    No I am from GR.
    I have also been accepted by Warwick (MSc in Statistics).
    However I find it hard to choose between my uni offers:
    Leeds, Essex, Lancaster, Nottingham, Warwick, UCL, LSE, Imperial
    (and have been waiting for decisions from Oxbridge too)

    I got offers from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Nottingham, and Warwick. In my case Warwick offered the behavioral course I went ahead and accepted the offer. BTW did you apply to ETH in Zurich?

    In all honest those are some outstanding universities, if money is no object I would choose Imperial. But again the question is where do you see yourself fit best?

    Cheers

    The MSc Finance course is more competitive to get onto so it is unlikely... call and ask.
