    Are you aware of whether there will be parking on campus available for visitors when we come to the open day? Or will we be required to use a nearby car park?

    Hi WhosWavey

    I think the best thing to do is to contact the department directly and have a chat with them. Yes work experience and the like do help, but they'd be able to give you more info.

    Best person to talk to is Sue Rolland and you get her on 01509 227 272 or e-mail her at [email protected]

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Vicky, my son applied to Loughborough early December to study engineering and has heard nothing other than an acknowledgement of receipt of his application a day or two after that. He emailed engineering admissions last week for an update and has not had a response to his email either. Do you think it may be wise to phone them?

    Hi Mumsknowbest

    Yes I'd give them a call. If you let me know which engineering department he applied to, I can give you the best number to call.

    Hi Emily.97

    If you mean a post-applicant visit day to your specific department, there is parking on campus and you'll be sent information on where to park as part of your invitation to visit.

    Hi Vicky, thanks for that but the engineering dept has responded to his email today to advise they have just processed his application. No update on UCAS track as yet but his email from Loughborough did outline 2 dates for upcoming campus visits/tours. Am I right in thinking this sounds positive ??!!

    Hi Mumsknowbest

    Honestly I have no idea, I don't know if it's a standard e-mail that's sent to everyone or not. Hopefully it is positive! :crossedf:

    Hi Vicky,

    I received a letter at home congratulating me on being offered a place for BS Product Design Engineering by the Loughborough Engineering department. It also included information about post-application visit days, some information about the university and an engineering prospectus. I was really excited to get the offer and was thinking about firming it, but it was not yet on UCAS. I emailed the admission office and they told me that for my application an offer is still not finalised. I saw on my letter an email for the engineering admission office and emailed them but I still dont have any reply. Do you think I should wait more to get an answer and is it a common thing to receive a letter before getting an offer? I just want to add that I have already graduated high school (therefore have all of my grades) and I have been for an year in another UK university, but I am applying this year for a different major. Does this kind of situation takes longer to process?

    I've sent you a private message to get more details from you so I can look in to what's happening.

    Hi Vicky
    I sent my ucas off on the 5th December and haven't heard back from Loughborough for the mechanical engineering foundation, all other universities have replied back. I emailed Loughborough in the beginning of February and they emailed back saying my application is under consideration.

    Any idea how much longer it would take to get an offer, or should I contact them again?

    Thanks

    Hi Mo_12397

    I've just spoken to the department and they are processing foundation applications now. They're going to be finished tomorrow / Monday, so if you've not heard by Wednesday next week, drop me a PM with your UCAS ID and full name and I'll look in to it for you.

    Hope this helps
