York has a much better reputation for what I want to do and I much prefer it as a university in general for different reasons. Plus, a lot of people I know are at/going to York and I know very little people at Edinburgh. Great uni though, just not for me.

Since when did York get a "much better" reputation for music ?

says who ?

I am not a fan of league tables but they certainly don't say that so I just thought you could say exactly who says York is "much better"- besides you of course ...

I'm not here for a debate, this is for people who got offers which I did. It's a known fact among music academics in Britain that York is a top notch debarment and that Edinburgh, although very good, isn't as strong in that particular field. York has better research, facilities, better graduate destinations, most distinguished lecturers and, despite what league tables say, has been known as a solid department for a long time. Edinburgh's degree used to be part of the Edinburgh College of Art before it integrated with the university and only recently has it seen prominence as a to department, which it is now, but it isn't as established as York.

Well you don't have to debate if you don't want to
..

But Edinburgh University has had its first professor of music in 1839. They came under the umbrella of The Edinburgh College of Art after the merger. Saying something is a well known fact without any other evidence doesn't make it so. York University was formed in 1963....It is a great university with a good music department but you have provided no evidence to suggest its superiority and certainly not its superiority based on its age

Good Luck with Cambridge I hope you get in and enjoy it

Has anyone with an engineering offer heard anything about a post-offer visit/open day? I'd be really keen to go but I haven't heard anything yet :/ my friend who has an offer for computer science has been invited to one already, which is slightly worrying me
Yeah I have an offer and went to a visit day it was awesome the department and labs are really impressive and they showed us the layout of the five year masters to us, the department is only 20 ish minutes walk away from centre of town and halls, really recommend you going if you get the chance awesome city as well :P they don't call it the Athens of the North for nothing

Got an offer for Sociology! Does anyone know any contact hours estimates per week?
Congrats! I'm waiting to hear back from them- could I be nosey and ask what grades they asked for? I just wondered whether they actually ask for the "typical offer"grades quoted on the website. Where else have you applied? Edinburgh is the last of mine to get back to me!

Is anyone else still waiting for an offer or refusal, because I have submitted my application two days before deadline and gotten an offer from each of the other 4 unis, but Edinburgh has not gotten back to me till now?! Does anybody have an idea wether this a good or bad sign?
I'm basically exactly the same! They sent an email saying that they wanted to reply to all applicants by the 31st of March...the wait shouldn't be much longer!

is it a joint degree if so they take longer as they leave them usually to last since it is considered by two departments together

nope, just sociology! I think it's just because they have a lot of applicants, I don't know- hopefully will find out soon enough!

Sweet, yeah it sounds amazing and I'd love to go for a visit but the engineering website said something like "successful applicants will be invited to visit days" but I got my offer two weeks ago and still haven't heard anything about a scheduled visit day. I might email them or something now though.
Yeah I'd definitely like to go and see Edinburgh, because I'm just back from Durham and thought their open day was excellent so I want to compare the two now to help with my decision!!
Good to hear about the department location, I was worried it looked a little far away on the maps but 20 mins is just a little stroll!

Anyone got offers from Ireland? A good few of my friends and myself have applied but no one's heard anything back. We can only hope that the conversion to LC grades is what's the delay. The suspense really is killing me — send my application in October!!
I'm from Ireland too and myself and a few friends are still waiting to hear but 2 of them received offers last week so I think its just down to the individual departments themselves

Still waiting on Edinburgh to reply for Law and I'm starting to stress friends have unconditional offers and the applicant days are next week or so for Law. What are the chances, realistically, of a default rejection?

I've already done my A levels, so I got an unconditional offer. I got AAAA!
