    Hi Jasmine,

    It honestly depends on the course and the member of staff processing the applications. We have lots more Visit Days this term, so it may be that they are waiting to put out a joint response. Have you spoken with any of the other students' you met at the interview to see whether they have received anything back on UCAS?

    None of us exchanged details unfortunately so I can't contact them! Do you think it could be a while before I get a response then? The wait is already killing me as Essex will be my firm and I just want to know if I got in! Frustrating but obviously can't be helped with the amount of visit days. Are applications processed by each individual department after you have had an interview?
    Thanks,

    Hi Jasmine,

    Yes, basically after the interview the applications will be reviewed by the admissions tutor for that department/course specialty and then decisions are sent off and then processed by UCAS. I think it was a couple of weeks before I had my response for Biomedical Science, so just be patient if you want you could always call admissions and ask them if they have began to process the applications from the date of your visit day.

    Glad your choosing Essex as your first choice I'm sure you'll love it here

    Went to the interview, ez pz, asked me "why computer science?" and "why Essex?" then asked me a bit about what I did in college. Then that was it, lasted about 5 minutes. I wore Jeans, trainers, shirt and sweater. He said I'd get an unconditional offer since I meet all the entry requirements. If you're worrying about the interview, you probably shouldn't be

    I sent my application for Law around a month ago and I haven't heard anything back yet, I don't think I even got an acknowledgement email but on UCAS it said not every university will send one.
    Hi

    I really do hope you heard back from the university about your application for law. I am studying law and as far as I remember it took them approximately 1-2 weeks to answer me so no worries about that.

    In just any case, you could simply email [email protected] or just type undergraduate admissions essex on google, find their phone number and give them a call.

    Hope that helps

    Good luck to anyone applying to Essex, I'm loving it here (current Finance student), they've pumped tons of money into a new Business school, Finance Lab and Student centre, both of which are so useful to me. Can't forget to mention how amazing these buildings look!

    Regarding uni accommodation it depends what you are looking for. If you want something cheap then go for the Towers, the cheapest for the coming year 2016-2017 is £76.93 per week with all bills included. There can be up to 16 people living on one floor and everyone shares a kitchen and bathrooms so it can be really social.

    In my opinion, the Meadows is the nicest accommodation, it is the newest and very modern. However, it is more expensive. If you want your own en-suite then South Courts or the Quays would be the two options. South Courts is located right next to the sports centre and only 3 minutes walk to uni which can be useful and the Quays is the furthest away from campus but is slightly cheaper than South Courts.

    Here is the link to the uni's accommodation page. Have a look at what they offer and the price! Feel free to ask any other questions you may have ^Sam
