    Has anyone applied for LLM in this thread?
    I am a bit worried because i submitted my application only a couple of days ago, so was wondering if anyone's got any idea about whether this is too late?
    Any response would be appreciated

    The letter only took a couple of days, but it's literally an A4 page telling me I have a place. A bit of information would have been lovely.. it's sad but I love reading through stuff like that haha, it gets me excited!

    Plus I think it just makes the university look more welcoming, but that's just me!

    Have you received anything after accepting?
    Me too! No I haven't received anything since accepting haha, I might email the department to find out some information about class sizes etc but it has been 9 days since I accepted so I'm not sure I will be getting any welcome post!

    Actually, does anyone here know about size classes or department sizes or just any general information they can share about the School of Public Policy (Security Studies would be even better)? Or what the class size is generally for postgraduate courses? I don't recall seeing anything about that before I applied. Before I annoy them with my email haha..

    Same here. It's been over 2 months already.

    Good thing I've already received an offer from my first choice, otherwise I'd be getting worried/impatient ..

    That's a shame! Perhaps they'll wait and send everything over the summer like registration info etc.

    I would also like to know about class sizes! Perhaps have a looksee if there are any facebook groups for previous years for your course? You may be able to get an idea from how many people have joined those.. Or you could just email them! I may do the same

    Also have you seen the custom timetable on Portico? Hours of endless fun!

    I applied at the end of November for the MSc Economics but haven't received any outcome yet...
    In the meantime I have received offers from the 4 other unis I applied to but I think UCL would be my first choice.

    Yeah, I hope so. It's a bit weird.. I applied to Oxford 2 months later but have already received the result.

    I mean, it should be in the interest of the university that the candidates get their results as soon as possible otherwise they might choose just another uni...

    I have an uncoditional offer for PhD in UCL.

    I suppose it depends on the field that you want to work.
    I know many people who work in pharmaceutical companies. They probably have an msc in stats with medical applications (like that one from Sheffield) thought, and/or they have a PhD in a related area as well.
    Others work in bank or in insurance companies (but those are more actuary-oriented).

    Dealing with "Big Data" is one of the most high-paying jobs and in great demand. Someone with BSc in Statistics and MSc in Computers (or vice-versa, like your case), have the perfetct background for it. Please keep in mind thought, that all "Big Data" jobs, although they provide you with good salary, however they also require fore PhD.

    Other than these there are many other sectors where you can work (Perhaps secondary education? But you will need a PGCE for that). Albeit I don't know a lot in general, because I am looking forward for a career in academia and thus I am not aware of all the available choices in the industry.
    Thanks for the information. I looked into it. I am not really sure about how much of higher level mathematics I will be able to keep up with. In one of the university websites offering MSc in Statistics and Machine Learning its written that first two weeks there will be a maths revision conducted. Those who aren't able to keep up will be transferred to Machine Learning course. So lets see. Congratulations for your admit! Good luck with your PhD.

    Hey guys, my status for the English Masters: Issues in Modern Culture updated to "Currently being processed by Admissions" yesterday morning (I'm an American living in EST time zone), yet the Portico has not yet given me a decision. I scoured past forums, and pretty much everyone said that they received their acceptance or rejection several hours later (around 7:00 PM EST) upon seeing that status update. Has anyone else gotten a later notice for this update... or should I just assume that this is a passive aggressive way of being rejected?

    Hey there,

    I am! Actually got my offer on Tuesday (an unofficial one from the department, hopefully gonna get an official one soon!). How is your application progressing? Where else are you applying?
    Hi there, congratulations on getting the offer! May I ask what is your background? Have you got any experience in computing? What are your other choices?
    My application is still being assessed, I submitted it on the 16th of December...
    I emailed them in February asking what was going on and they just told me to be 'aware that due to the high volume of applications...'.
