    Hiya,

    I applied for two Psychology courses at Bath Uni in early October, as well as applying to Kent, Nottingham, and Plymouth. I had an email to confirm that they'd received both applications, and that they mightn't be able to respond to some applicants until after the UCAS deadline - 15th January.

    It might seem really impatient, but I've had offers from the other three unis, but Bath is my first choice. I'm just worried that they don't want me and that's why they're taking so long to respond - I know that other people have offers.

    Just wondering if anybody else is in the same situation, or has been and has any advice over how to rid themselves of the waiting anxiety!

    Thanks,
    Leigh.

    Don't worry, there's still loads of time for them to reply. It depends on the department at that uni as well even more than the uni itself usually. If they've said they might respond to some applicants till after the deadline, then it's definitely possible they've just been waiting till the deadline for a lot of candidates to compare them fairly. So it's only really been a week since they've started. Though Bath were the first to give me my offer, extraordinarily quickly (90 minutes after they said they'd received it!) but this was for Comp Sci which will have its own department. Also, they'll have been flooded with applicants close to the final date so there will be a huge lot to go through (29th Sept), whereas when I'd applied they'd have had very few to consider. The best way to rid yourself of UCAS anxiety is to distract yourself. I found watching funny TV shows etc. is the best way for me as I can just switch my brain off.

    Hi,

    I've moved this thread to the University of Bath sub-forum. As you're asking a specific question about offers at this uni, your thread fits better here, and it's more likely to be seen by others in the same situation.

    I hope you get the offer you want

    Hi,

    There is no need to worry if you haven't received an offer yet from the University of Bath!

    Admissions are very busy as they receive thousands of applications and it takes a lot of time to process all of these and you may not here for a while as a result. They will do their best to let you know as soon as possible, and will definitely have responded by the time it comes to deadlines for universities to make offers on 31st March.

    Hope this helps, feel free to quote me with any other questions.

    I am still waiting as well. I have come to terms though that I might not hear back until the end of March. Bath is definitely in my Top 2 if all 5 of my choices give me an offer.

    I can confirm that there is a backlog of applications in the Admissions Office but they are working their way through them.
    I am going up to Bath on Friday to have a look at the Sports Village and hopefully the Maths Dept and some accommodation.

    Bath is experiencing a massive increase in the number of applications they received so it is taking more time to process.
    I do know what you mean though.

    Still no response, and my friend applying for same course hasn't had one either. Same here; I just want a response so I can make firmer plans rather than not being able to really get excited or motivated.

    31st March is the latest any university can reply, I think, so you'll probably hear within the next few weeks - good luck!

    Hi guys,

    Sorry about the delay in getting back to you all! Admissions are inundated with offers and the process can take a while, but they will have replied either way by 31st March which is the deadline to give offers.

    Accommodation applications don't begin until 13th April this year, so there is no need to worry about that.

    Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

    Sam
