    UCL is known for being very slow, but they gave me an offer in under 3 weeks


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I got mine less than 2 weeks before the first lecture. Masters, though - so prolly less priority than undergrads.

    Back in 2009/2010 (blimey I applied for university 5 years ago) for Ancient History and History the two slowest were Nottingham and Exeter. Nottingham came last and offered me a place on a different course after saying that AHH was full.

    Managed to get an offer from Manchester on the day of them receiving my application, but I did say I was going to live at home so maybe that had something to do with it. I'm waiting for Nottingham, they've had my application for just under 3 weeks. Christmas did kind of get in the way

    Imperial College is definitely the slowest one. I sent my UCAS application on the 20th of September and still haven't heard anything from them apart from acknowledgment!!

    Bristol has always had a reputation for being slow to send out offers, and I haven't seen anything this year to suggest they won't be slow again!
    I got mine in 9 days.

    Got my offers from Warwick, Bristol and Nottingham before Christmas and I didn't apply until after late November, so I'm guessing they are quite quick. York was the first day back in January. Only one I've not heard from yet is UCL...so of the ones I've chosen, they're the slowest. It probably depends on the course as well though - I applied for joint honours English/Philosophy at the other unis, but straight English at UCL, which may be more oversubscribed.

    Exeter and Hertfordshire are taking the longest for me.

    Quite surprised Hertfordshire is taking a long time because they have the lowest entry requirements out of all the universities I applied for :rofl:
