    I was wondering the same question as well, did you receive any email contents further information about school like tuition fee, accommodation application after you accepted you offer? i just accepted my offer yesterday and i thought i would get an email like that but i haven't got it so far
    If there was a deposit they would not let you accept the offer before you pay the deposit. This is the whole point- you accept by paying the deposit.

    I am an American postgraduate student holding offers from both King's College London (MA War Studies) and University College London (MSc Security Studies).

    From what I hear, the War Studies Department at KCL is quite prestigious, but I haven't been able to find any information on the Department of Political Science at UCL. Does anyone have any information on the reputation of this department or the program that I have selected (MSc Security Studies)?

    I welcome your advice on which program to choose . It's a difficult decision and I'm completely torn between the two options.

    I have a 71% in my 1st 2 years of bachelor's degree(India, economics honors). currently in the 3rd year. are there chances i might get an offer from UCL for Msc economics ?
    I know someone who was accepted into LSE with 73% in Economics Honours from an Indian university. So, I'd say that you stand a pretty good chance at UCL too. Just make sure that the personal statement mentions your college/class standing. And like Ghost6 said, you'd need to get strong letters of recommendation, preferably from your Economics professors only.

    yeah i understand that a deposit should be paid first, but the thing is I haven't got any email about what happens next, like how do I pay for a deposit and how much should I pay for. Btw I've also noticed that a previous post said UCL doesn't require a deposit?? Is that true??

    It depends on the course. My course did not ask for a deposit.

    Well with your marks you meet the entry requirements of the course. That's as far as your marks will carry you though. At the postgraduate level, more emphasis is put on your personal statement and your letters of recommendation. You need to convince the admissions committee that this is the right course for your career plans, that you'll be able to keep up with the course and that you are a good fit for the department.

    Is Portico down or something? Couldn't check my application status at all, it says my password is incorrect when it obviously isn't.

    Btw, I'm new here. Congrats to all of you who's got the offer.

    Does anyone know how long you have to accept your offer? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the offer and I know the other two Uni's I got into have deadlines so I figured UCL would too.

    If you've had an offer it should say on the letter, i think mine was 4 weeks. x

    Was this online or the letter they mail to you? I have only seen my offer online and can't find that information anywhere. I'm in the US too so it takes a little while to get those letters to me. Thanks!

    Well, you said you have accepted the offer. If you accepted it, you must have had some way to do it? And after accepting the offer the only thing you need to do is to fulfill the conditions, if there are any, and send them proof. You might get some details in the mail later, or just read on their website and/or admissions brochure.

    As for required or not - just like Xristina said, it depends on the course. Finance usually requires deposits, very few others do.

    I am an American postgraduate student holding offers from both King's College London (MA War Studies) and University College London (MSc Security Studies).

    From what I hear, the War Studies Department at KCL is quite prestigious, but I haven't been able to find any information on the Department of Political Science at UCL. Does anyone have any information on the reputation of this department or the program that I have selected (MSc Security Studies)?

    I welcome your advice on which program to choose . It's a difficult decision and I'm completely torn between the two options.
    There is little to chose in academic terms between them, and as they are only a short walk apart in London, not really much to separate them on location.

    I'd say if you were determined and likely to carve out a career in serious IR, then War Studies at King's is the more prestigious. However, as you move to the margins of pure IR, the global reputation of UCL is higher than King's.

    I'd base the decision on which department had the staff that I most wanted a chance to work with - who has the specialist in the area you want to specialise in?

    They are both fairly equal as far as quality within Economics but I would always pick UCL because of the location and career opportunities associated with studying in London. You won't go wrong with either uni though.

    I hold an offer from Warwick for Msc Econ but Im still waiting to hear back from UCL. It says they take 6 weeks. Its been double that at least!
