Hello everyone

The best advice I can give is to just wait a little bit as Universities can take a while to look through the applications they receive. Something you can do is stay in contact with the Universities that you have applied to, as this will give you some peace of mind. A common piece of advice is to contact the university if you have not heard anything in 4 weeks, as this is the general cycle it takes to process the applications. Still, if you want any updates on you applications then do contact the university and the admissions teams will do the best they can to answer any questions you have.

I hope this is helpful.

If you need anything else then let me know!

- Matt
Hi,

A lot of the universities discussed on this thread (e.g. Bristol and Warwick among others) historically don't give out a large number of offers until late spring, regardless of when applicants apply. They certainly don't work on a 4 week application cycle (lots of unis don't), and I can't see any benefit in contacting the unis in this case.

I think it's worth being careful what you post on this thread, as you may worry a lot of people who have been waiting more than 4 weeks, when this is totally usual for the unis they've applied to.

2 or even 4 week is a very short amount of time to wait for offers, especially applying close to the deadline. Do remember that most unis are shut until around 5-7th January, and when people get back to work, responding to applications may not be their first priority. By that stage, many unis may also just wait until after the deadline, so they can consider all the applications together.

I'm sure you'll all get offers soon

To confirm the advice from Slow above - many Universities get THOUSANDS of applications for each course.

You want to think that they will read and consider your application properly don't you? That they will take some time to read your PS that you spent so long perfecting?

Yes? Then have some patience and don't expect decisions immediately.

All my friends have confirmed their firm and insurance choice.
I have one offer.
I still have three interviews to attend.
Won't have all my decisions for all 5 uni's until March - at least.
Accommodation is already open at my first choices.
HELP.
This is basically the position I am in! One of my friends has all 5 offers, another one has an unconditional offer (not from his favourite though). I'm there with 1 offer, 3 interviews and nothing at all from my fifth choice. I'm just hoping that because Edinburgh has a reputation for late replies, it means they are definitely considering me!
March is ages away... silly us for choosing interviewing universities/subjects!

Lol guys, I have received only one reply so far (offer from warwick management after exactly a week i sent my application) and I've been waiting for almost 3 months now. Stop stressing if you haven't heard back in a couple weeks cause there are loads of people still waiting for responses since October-November. Besides, the longer you wait, the better your chances are of getting offers! Unis send more rejections than offers in the beginning, comparing you with your cohort, and then in send the end big batches of offers.

Only applied to one Uni - University of Hertfordshire. Been 6 weeks now. Any one had interviews/offers for Adult Nursing? As a mature student with only one commutable option I am finding the wait very hard!

After hearing nothing from South Wales, they have been the first to come back to me. I've got an interview for tomorrow morning (suprise!) No idea what to expect, as they first asked me for a Skype interview, but then they changed it to a phone interview..

Think that you can expect two kinds of questions:
1) Normal ones e.g. Why this subject? Why here? What do you wanna do with your degree?
2) Questions that requires you to show critical thinking within your subject.

Note though that many unis say they are trying to make the interviews "flow" or make you "ping pong" with them. Basically meaning that they want the interview to take the form of a conversation rather than just a question/answer session. Either way, you should attempt to look up info for your specific unis interview proces.

Good luck tomorrow!

Well, that went well *cough*
Apparently they're changing the course for September with completely different modules, but he was really nice about it and told me to get in touch with the Theatre and Drama department (I applied for Performing Arts).

What´s the difference between Performing Arts and Theatre and Drama?
Do you still wanna go there?

Well before they seemed really similar to me, with performing arts focusing a little more on technical things on the side and also screen acting, while the impression I got from the theatre and drama was that they specialised pretty much on stage-acting. And as I am also interested in production and post-production I choose that course. But now they are changing performing arts to a more street-performancy, circusy course, (as I was told) and the technical things would be more included in theatre and drama course, which he advised me to try to switch to.
It wasn't my first choice to begin with, but the more research I put into it, the nicer cardiff seemed, so I'll probably still apply for the other course as an insurance, because the uni sounds nice (also they have much lower qualifications than sussex (bbc compared to aab or for me 2.9 instead of 2.0 which is a lot ) ) also they were the first uni to come back to me, which is why I don't just want to throw them out...
