    Similar situation here, a lot of people who've had interviews seem to have signed up for MEng so maybe it's something to do with that??

    I've had an interview and applied for BEng, though the interview did try to push me towards MEng.

    My application was sent off around 9th October I think. My predictions are 3 A*s and a D1 in the Pre-U subject I'm taking.

    International Applicant from India here!
    Applied for M. Eng in Computing (International Programme of Study)
    Subjects: English, Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Computer Science
    Grade 10 (India AISSE, GCSE equivalent): 10 CGPA
    Grade 12 Predicted (India AISSCE, A level equivalent): 93+ in all

    They requested for a predicted grades transcript, and I got the final acknowledgment on 30th October (Although I sent in my app on 12th).

    Have they sent any internationals any offers/interview invites?

    I am an international applicant studying in an Indian school in Qatar.
    Applied for MEng in Computing
    I sent my application on Oct 11th and got an acknowledgement on Oct 30th and an email about the President's Undergraduate Scholarship 2 weeks later.
    Nothing since then.
    On their website it says that they take a minimum of 8 weeks to make a decision
    on an application ( Its been 5 weeks since I sent the application) but this may vary.

    Pretty sure they haven't looked the international applicants yet. Probably gonna wait until March end to hear from them

    Even I got that email! And yeah. Although they're pretty fast with the nationals. But it makes sense to give out domestic offers first...

    There were some people doing IB at my interview day so it would seem they have interviewed some internationals, unless i'm missing something here

    Some UK schools offer IB (like mine) but I also think some international students have been interviewed; someone at my interview day said they'd never been to the UK before.

    Incidentally, anyone know when they start giving out offers or rejections after the interviews? Some people have been saying its <2 weeks for any people they can immediately either reject or give offers to, and people who don't get responses as soon are closer to being borderline, meaning they will be compared with the next group of interviewees. Not too sure if that's true though.

    I'm just assuming it has international in its name because it was probably created with the intention of establishing an international standard in education or something like that..probably..

    And oh nice, gratz . I guess I'll go back to stabbing the refresh button on my email in 10 days or so then.
