    Hi everyone

    I sent off my UCAS application on the 29th november, Im applying for international business at these universities:

    -University of Manchester
    -Oxford Brookes
    -University of Kent (Canterbury)
    -University of Sheffield
    -Nottingham Trent

    I was just wondering if anyone can give me any idea on how long any of these universities take to reply, as i would just like to know how long I will have to wait approximately to know whether I have been accepted or not

    Thanks

    Manchester took 6 days for me. Not for your course though, but I've heard they're generally pretty fast with applications.

    Depends on so many different things it's pretty impossible to answer, although I have heard from a lot of people that Manchester is really quick.

    To be blunt, other people's offers are often quite irrelevant - just because someone has an offer from x university to study y course, doesn't mean that you not having an offer from them is because you're going to be rejected. Universities don't work on that basis, some people wait a few days, some people wait months. Just how it goes I'm afraid.
