    Applied for Msc Language Sciences (with a specialisation in Linguistics and Neuroscience) and MRes Speech, Language and Cognition! Sent my application off on Saturday and my references were completed today -- my application is officially under consideration

    Got in for Linguistics BA three years ago but chose QM instead - hope I'm given another chance to study here :-)

    A word of warning to everyone - setting a password for UCL moodle is such a pain in the ass.
    Oh my God, I'm not the only one. I don't know how many times I have tried to get registered and whatever. I have so many usernames and random numbers floating around, and why does the password have to be exactly 8 characters? So stupid.

    You can't use any real words either.

    Something like AQvwzj18 would work.

    Would be best off emailing to check what you should do I'm guessing
    I have, but they are very busy and haven't responded back.

    One tip: use a foreign word if you know one. It works!

    It was also funny how asdf or qwer, etc. didn't work on me.

    Oh dear god I got an email from UCL, beginning with 'We are delighted'. Turns out it was just 'We are delighted that you have chosen to apply to UCL and the Faculty of Laws.' and some information about how my application would be processed.

    God damn UCL, why would you tease me like that?

    Signing up for the stuff online is a major pain in the arse, as the others have said.

    Internet banking accounts have less password requirements than UCL, I have no clue why they need the password to be so specific.
