    [QUOTE=olyak;64675851]Hey guys
    I got an unconditional offer from Westminster to study IR and I want to accept it, but I won't be able to afford going if I don't get a scholarship.
    So what should I do? Wait for the reply from the Scholarship team and hope I hear back from them before the deadline to accept the offers (8th June) or accept the offer now regardless and then if I am not lucky with the scholarship just withdraw my application?
    Westminster is really my only chance to go to uni anywhere in the world, can't even go in my own country the waiting for the scholarship outcome is nerve-wracking..[/QUOTE

    Hey, thanks for you response
    I am afraid it still won't be possible for a number of reasons. The most important one is that there is no chance I can afford tuition fees in the first place. Regarding the accommodation, my dad's salary is about £400 (which is a great salary in my home country but won't get me anywhere in the UK) and I am as a non-eu citizen only allowed to work in the UK for up to 10 hours a week which can give me about 300£ per month so I guess it still won't be quite enough to survive
    I know that my situation isn't great, but it makes me so sad knowing that there are so many people out there who are struggling even more.. But the good thing is that at least there is a chance to study if you get a scholarship

    Hello

    The scholarships team are currently shortlisting applications and will advise students of the outcome by the end of June. Unfortunately there is no way to speed up this process as we receive hundreds of applications which all need to be processed. The only thing you can do is accept the offer and wait. If it turns out that you are unsuccessful then you will have to withdraw your application. I realise that the waiting time is nerve-wracking for you and I really hope that you will be successful with your application.

    Best of luck!

    Hey, I am also waiting for the results and it is indeed nerve-wracking! I thought it would be helpful if I looked for other applicants, but it just makes me even more anxious.

    Hey nanatti,

    No news yet. Which scholarship did you apply to?
    @deckle I have applied for a postgraduate scholarship in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). In the scholarship brochure they say applicants will receive an answer within 6 weeks (mid June), but now I have read in some posts that they will be in touch by the end of June or beginning of July!

    Have you heard from anyone already?

    Thank you and best of luck to you too! I take it you haven't heard from the Scholarship Team either? I saw somewhere that everyone who applied for a scholarship in April should have heard back from them by 27th May...

    I did see the post too but am not sure what it meant, but best thing to do is to keep waiting. We should be hearing back soon though I read somewhere some have heard back already
