    How long does it normally take to get a response from the unis?
    It varies so much i'm afraid. Last year some people heard within a week or 2 of interviews whereas others didn't hear until mid April!

    Now that the UCAS deadline is fast approaching, things should start to speed up with interview invites.

    Depends when you applied, which uni, and what for. Some many still take months yet

    Fastest response I had last year was MMU (about a week after interview) slowest were Sheffield (they kept a lot of people hanging until the last minute) - Manchester was a long wait as they tell everyone at the same time - oh and Leeds were pretty quick but that was a rejection lol

    As others have said, there's a huge variation. Strathclyde gave me an unconditional offer within five working days, yet Sheffield waited until 30th April to reject me :/

    It depends on the universities. Some give offers as they interview. Others wait until a few days before they have to inform students. Once you get your first offer the pressure defiantly lifts!

    Don't start worrying yet - you didn't send your application till just before Xmas did you? - so with the holidays etc expect that will slow things up a bit - we finished classes on 14 Dec and don't go back till 12 Jan but reckon admin/ admissions will be back in next week so things will move on again - that's how it was last year - lots of replies in early Jan.

    Good luck but sure you wont need it. I know the constant waiting is hard

    Helloooo everyone! I had an interview at BCU for SLT on the 1st December.. But I've applied for the part time course as a 'mature' student.. Congratulations all those who have had offers, I suppose you heard through UCAS? Not knowing the decision either way is pickling my little brain!
    Anyone else applied for part-time or just little old me 🙋

    Fingers crossed to all those who are waiting for the outcome..

    Ive only applied to BCU. Had my interview on the 8th and not heard yet. I would have liked to do the part time for the first two years, but as I am a very mature student thought I better try and do it as quickly as I could. Good luck.
