    How did they send your offer? Did you receive an email? Or snail mail? Congrats!
    Thank you! I found out about my offer on Portico first, actually. It changed from "Currently Being Processed By Admissions" to "Conditional Offer".

    I got an email from the department a week later saying that I had been recommended by the department head, and that admissions just had to approve the decision (which they already had). They said they'd be sending me an offer by snail mail, but since I'm currently away at school and not at home, I don't know if it's arrived yet. So for me the the offer sending was a little backwards, but I'm not complaining.

    Have you heard yet? What program did you apply for?

    Conditional offer from UCL for a PhD in Classics (condition is just that I obtain my master's lol)
    I worry a bit though cause I need to accept the offer within 4 weeks. Problem is of course that in the end actually going will depend on the funding (and to be honest, if I was lucky enough to have a funded offer from Oxford, I would probably go there). Would it be too horrible of me if I accepted the offer, so that I will be considered for funding, and then decided based on the outcome for funding?
    how come you applied to do 2 phds at 2 different universities? Thats pretty lucky you've found 2 supervisors with similar researcher interests.

    I applied to 5 (well 4, but I will apply to one more soon)
    I think that it might be slightly different for humanities. As long as your supervisor works on your area, then it's fine. Although of course, some are more suitable than others.

    Hey I got an offer for the Human Rights Course and need to take an important day off work for the open day so not sure what to do. I'm wondering if there will be another one, might give them a call to see.

    Whats your undergrad in ?
    Mine is in Law and French, yours??

    I suppose it will be a good idea to get a feel for the school and what the actual masters contains!! They might do another one, although tbh, the closer to final exams the worse it will be, so maybe I should just bite the bullet and go to this one!!

    Congratulations!!
    This is perfect, you couldnt have a better condition
    Is it usual for admission officers to ask PhD applicants from Oxbridge only to obtain their masters? (without degree performance specification?)

    I really don't know...I find this weird....does anyone know what the usual offer is for a PhD from UCL?

    all it says is: This offer is made on the condition that you provide documentary evidence, such as an official final transcript, to confirm the award of your Masters degree as soon as you are able to

    Same with me, I saw it on portico first...a conditional offer as well! I applied for the MSc Public Policy program. Are you waiting to see if you get other offers before you accept? Or is UCL your top choice?

    Just received a conditional offer for the MSc International Public Policy! Heard back two weeks after they had all my documents. Does anyone know much about this program? I knew enough to apply, but looking for some other insight. Thanks!

    I applied for IPP as well. My application became complete a week ago. Let's hope I hear back as quickly as you did!

    Hey I've also applied to the IPP program

    Same as you I don't know much about it, but the program seems well designed. I know UCL's Public Policy school is relatively new.

    A part of me is wishing I had just done the regular Msc in Public Policy.

    I got my offer through snail mail today. It confirms that the condition is just my Masters..I find this a bit weird. So basically even if I get the lowest mark possible, I still get to go?

    Hi guys,

    Just found this thread! I applied to the MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience last year, but deferred to this year (which I regret now seeing as the fees have gone up!).
    Really excited to be starting at UCL in September, even if I am having a bit of a stress about how the hell I'm going to pay for tuition and afford to eat at the same time.

    I got my undergrad back in 2008, but was offered a job in America, and my visa is up in September so I decided to stay here 'til the end of my visa and start my Masters a year later.

    I was back in the UK at Christmas and explored the campus a bit, seeing as I'd never actually been, which made me even more excited to go back to uni! Seriously looking forward to September now.

    Hi,

    I'm in the Msc this year! Are you coming to the open house?

    So no need to worry about marks
