    Hey guys, I just firmed imperial, but here has been no acknowledgement or whatever, is this happening to you too? Besides, should I expect an offer letter or should I just go ahead and apply for ATAS? Thank you for your help!

    Hi, I firmed Imperial over 2 weeks ago and still no acknowledgement. A few other people are also in the same situation. All my others universities sent acknowledgements of my reply within 2/3 days so I'm guessing Imperial just don't...

    Universities often don't send any kind of confirmation.

    When I firmed Imperial I didn't hear anything until I received an invitation to apply for accommodation in May.

    So don't worry about it. If it's on ucas then it's official.

    Phone them up if you like. You definitely will be contacted in some way though. I got an offer letter around two weeks after firming it, for medicine (crb form ect). If it's on UCAS it is official, but phone them up if you just want to ask when they will send their letters(if they send it for your course, or just send you one closer to may for accomodation).

    Ok,that's reassuring.Thank you for the reply.I am an international student, so I think I will just wait for a while. Did you firm a conditional offer or an unconditional offer? Mine is conditional but the only condition is me getting my ATAS certificate before July.

    1. Its required from international students (i.e. non-UK and non-EU) and 2. you need to apply online and 3. its only for a number of specified postgraduate (MSc, PhD, etc) courses

    Have you finished your ATAS application? I am applying for it. I got a few problems. Do you know what is Student ID Number? and what do I have to do with Employment History and Financial Sponsor? High school students don't have those information, I suppose. But if I leave them blank, I can't completing the following sections.

    Many thanks for your help!
