    Another thing you should take into account is location. None of the unis in the world can have two world-class libraries (the British Lib and the Senate House Lib) and a world-class museum (the British Musuem) within walking distance. I had a great time at UCL in Bloomsbury, the intellectual centre of London!

    Hey,

    I just wanted to ask how long it usually takes for admissions to process an offer and sent out and official offer after you've been recommended by the department.

    The Department received my app on the 28th of June and admissions received my paperwork on the 8th of July, so two weeks. Admissions told me they look to process that info and send out a letter within 7-10 working days.

    Don't know if you're international but you can request that they email you when they post your official letter.

    Does anybody know some magical way to contact the admissions office? I try to call them for the last three days and nobody answers the phone:/
    I sent a letter accepting a conditional offer for International Public Policy a month ago and I want to check if they got it. I also have the official results from my previous studies now and I was wondering whether I need to inform them that I've fulfilled the condition they gave me or should I just wait till September.
    Does anyone know what's the procedure?

    What times are you calling them? I noticed theyre particularly busy around noon. I call via skype around 1-3 and I've always managed to get through. You honestly have to hang up and redial constantly until you get through.

    Hi All

    Here's my story:

    I applied for Msc in Software Engineering to Imperial, UCL, KCL and York on 29th June, 2010. On 6th July, I received intimations from Imperial and York. Imperial had declined whereas York had accepted. Surprisingly, York's offer letter was dated 1st July. I received an email from UCL on 8th July stating "You should receive a response by 18 August 2010." Nothing from KCL so far.

    I am gonna be coming from India and considering the Visa processing times from here, I really do not have too much time left. My two questions are:

    a) How long do I have before I accept or decline York's offer? They do not say anything about it in the letter. There is something in the FAQ on their website about six weeks but I am not sure if it applies to my case.

    b) Is UCL worth the wait? Appears from this thread that I should phone them - in 4 weeks time from their last email, perhaps?

    TIA

    3% should be fine. No need to worry. My friend skipped 6% and still managed to get it.

    Today I got sent a letter with a form where you had to fill in what grade you got and if you satisfied the offer they gave you. You have to send it back with a transcript so now I'm waiting on that :rolleyes:
