    I sent my UCAS off last monday and I haven't heard anything back...
    one of my friends had 3 offers and an interview after only 2 week and another has been waiting for 5 to hear anything...

    is there an average waiting time before hearing back of universities??

    It really depends on the course, some courses [Medicine for example] take longer to process due to the amount of applicants. I had to wait ages for some of my offers.
