    I received an email from the department with an offer subject to final checks. My official offer letter was dated 3 weeks after the email and I received it in the post a few days after that.

    My department advised contacting UCL admissions if I hadn't received the letter after 4 weeks.

    Congrats on your offers everyone! I was also recommended last week, I found out when I rang them to find out what the status of my application was. How long does it usually take for them to send out an official letter? I would feel better if I had the offer in writing before I say no to other universities, I have to reply to the others by 1st May.
    My offer letter took around two weeks to arrive after I got the notice I was recommended by the department.

    Everyone who has been recommended-are you applying for accommodation? If yes, are you waiting for a formal letter to come through or have you already applied? I am thinking about applying now even though I only learned last week of my recommendation.

    Thanks

    I already firmed my offer so I'm thinking of applying for accomodation in a couple of weeks or so (though being a UE citizen I reckon my chances will be slim?)

    If I were you I'd wait for the offer to be in your hands, it gives you more security, besides the deadline is only 30th june right?

    My second reference was submitted a month ago and they said they'd get in touch with me via post now. I haven't received anything yet in the post. Do they usually send an acknowledgment letter or not?

    Thanks, and congrats to you too I have the same problem about the letter. Honestly, don't hold your breath: I was notified by email on the 16th and 22nd of March for English and French respectively, and I still haven't received any offer letter - the Graduate secretary warned me that it takes quite a while for an offer to come through officially...
    Thanks for the info, it seems to be quite random then, as Inesrocks said it took 2 weeks to receive their offer. My concern is I have to reply to Kings College by 1st May, of course UCL is my first choice but I would feel more comfortable saying no if I had UCL's offer in writing. Such an annoying feeling!

    Yes, they do. I received mine about three weeks after applying, but the delay varies greatly depending on the department / time of the year. The letter normally tells you when you should expect to hear back as regards decisions... Hang in there

    I know :banghead: I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't start declining my offers now, I feel bad for holding on to them for the sake of a piece of paper.

    Just got an email saying my application was incomplete - missing a "clear and complete transcript".
    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    My uploaded transcript was perfectly legible and as complete as can get as far as i know - all module marks over 3 years. And it was good enough for King's who have just given me an offer despite receiving my application a month after UCL :rolleyes:

    Not amazingly impressed by UCL application process thus far...

    I randomly got an email yesterday (more than 4 months after applying) apologizing for the delay in the process and that they will be able to let me know my status next week.

    I need some quick help with UCL application: In the 'qualifications already obtained' section, what should I fill in? It's compulsory, and obviously my university degree goes under 'qualifications working towards' section. Should I fill in A-Levels or something?

    Thanks for any help!

    Of course, along with any other relevant qualification you may have -- although I think there is another section where you can put down such things as academic experience, etc. The "qualifications already obtained" one is more relevant for those working towards their MA degree I guess. Good luck with your application

    Yeah, I included my A-levels. I filled in a paper application so if you are filling in the online form it may be different, but the paper form said anything obtained since the age of 17 which I took to mean they wanted AS Levels and onwards.

    Yes you should put your A-levels, for as far as I remember it says you should put qualificaitons you got since you were 17.

    Hey,

    I applied a couple of weeks ago and called admissions yesterday to be told that it’ll take like ten more days for my application to be processed. I then went back to have a look at my online application and noticed that my transcript exceeds 2MB. Do you think they will accept it or should I give them a ring on Monday and ask them if I should re-send it?

    Am starting to feel a bit disheartened by this whole process, because I feel/think that the longer they take to process my application the less my chances are of getting in . Even though the programme I applied to doesn’t close until May 18th the admissions secretary told me that it’s something of a first come first serve basis and only if they haven’t filled places by the deadline they’ll continue to interview applicants…
