    I'm from Greece, thus not an UK applicant but an EU one, and my school has yet to sent off my applications and will do in about a week or two. Is the date the applications are sent off affecting whether I'll be accepted or not? Please reply, this thing is giving me so much anxiety:/ fyi the unis I'm applying to are not top 10 unis like Warwick or Surrey..
    Hello, as long as your application is sent off before the deadline (January 15th). There is no reason for you to worry, Universities don't accept you on how quickly you send the application... They will look at your grades, statement and see if you're applicable for the course. There is no need for you to get anxious even if you were applying to top ten universities, as long as it's in before the deadline you have the same chance as everyone!.

    Hey, congrats:yay:What course did you apply for?
    Thanks

    I applied for "Contemporary Chinese Studies with International Relations" (T1L2), it's so good because it's a year abroad in China but it's a 3 year course so I don't have to pay extra money for a 4th year

    What about you?

    I'm only waiting on Edinburgh now, anyone heard anything from them?
    I heard from them yesterday, was surprised because didn't think they'd get back to me till after January 15th! The only people I know that have offers are maths/physics/engineering applicants, and I've seen a lot of international applicants on TSR that have received theirs; what are you applying for?

    Heya, I would just like to say well done on your offer!! I just received my Nottingham offers for Global Issues and Contemporary Chinese Studies and also the 4 year Contemporary Chinese Studies course!! I didn't decide which course I wanted to do most when I applied but I've now decided to put Global Issues as my firm :P
    It would be so cool if both of us make the grades ;D

    Oh my gosh I'm so happy to find you! I knew literally no-one doing this course at Nottingham so I was really anxious that it was just me haha but there's 50 places only so it'll be a really tiny class so you'll probably be in my lectures?! What did Nottingham offer you?! This is so exciting Do you get to go abroad in the second year?! Ah this is so exciting!!!

    Aaaww no hahahaa, well I'm glad that you're not so nervous anymore!! one of my best friends is applying for Chinese too and has an offer from the exact same course as you, but she has an interview at Oxford next week so hopefully she won't be joining us XD and yes you're right, we probably will be, and also the Global Issues element of my course is made up of modules from the Politics and International Relations department so we will probably see a lot of each other XD and yup, second year will be in China and both courses have offered me ABB which I'm so happy about (gonna keep checking track though in case they turn into unconditional, wishful thinking but hey ho )
    How about you??!! Happy about what they have offered you??!!

    Haha thats great! I didn't know Global Issues was just Politics and IR in the 4th year, I feel like I should have done that then although 4 years is a bit too long for me :P I'M SO EXCITED SINCE THERE'S ONLY 50 PEOPLE WE WILL BE SO CLOSE HAHA Oh my gosh :lol:, we will be in China together too this is so fun I'm enjoying this prospect already :P Oh do they turn into unconditional sometimes after a few days of the offer?!
    Haha yeah they offered me ABB too! Which I thought was a surprise as it is from AAB to ABB and I thought that since it's 50 places it would be really competitive!

    Have you been to Notts? We should totally meet on an applicant day haha :P
