    Anyone knows can we actually apply for more than one program? Cuz I can only choose one when I am applying... do I need to create another account and pay another extra fee and go through the whole process again if I want to apply for two different programs?
    I dont think you have to create a new account, but you definitely have to pay the fee twice if you apply for two courses.

    I applied to MSc Management too. Yeah I was wondering how long it takes for a reply. It says it can take up to 6 weeks.
    I got an offer after nearly 5 weeks, but I phoned them asking for a decision pronto as I had an opportunity elsewhere (job offer) which I needed to decide on. It came through formally (on Portico) last week, 6 weeks exactly.

    My application was completed (references, payments the lot!) on 5th November and my offer came through to Portico on 11th November with my letter coming 14th November.
    I can't believe how quick it was!

    Among all the places I applied to UCL has the most user friendly application form and the most effective board of graduate studies / admission committees. I also got an answer after roughly 5 weeks.

    you mean 6 weeks after you submitted and application? how about the interview? I thought it's a must? Anyway have you decided whether to take the offer or not?

    I wonder why I have to go to an interview while other students have been offered places without any interviews. Mabye MSc Management has a large volume of applicants this year?

    Also the word "shortlist" is starting to scare me now.

    Sucks for you. I had a famous referee in mind but eventually decided against asking him because I knew it would take months and at least ten reminders to get him to post the reference.

    i know that ucl divide the student into two categories. The people who come from management background and the people who studied something else. A girl who applied on this course, told me that. She spoke with the admission team and she asked if it is worth to study msc in management since she is studying management. then the admission office explained to her how the department works.

    so ucl might ask students with non-managerial background for an interview.

    I was planning on applying to other universities but I received a response from UCL so fast that I now have to prepare for that interview and don't have time at the moment to apply to other universities as I have coursework and exams

    6 weeks after everything was confirmed as received - payment, referees, etc. I think I am going to decline the UCL offer and go to King's, not 100% sure yet, though.
