    Hello! I'm applying from the US, and I applied on 15 September when the UCAS opened. I've seen people get offers as early as now (late October). Is this unusual, or do international kids usually get offers around this time if they applied in mid-September?? I've exceeded the minimum requirements too, so does this basically guarantee me an offer? I'm applying for International Relations and Economics/Politics (tho I want IR the most).

    Did you apply for medicine/vet sciences? I know that usually internationals aren't usually interviewed unless it's those courses.

    It depends on which university and course you are applying to. Some of them will start offering places any time soon, whereas others won't tell you their decision until March.

    I don't think that it really depends on whether you are an international applicant or not, but on their system.
    For example, Oxford and Cambridge will hold interviews on December, and tell their decisions on january.

    I am an international applicant too (From Spain) and I have alredy received one offer (Glasgow), but my other 4 options are quite slow.

    No, I applied for cognitive science. The rep was in the area and offered an interview.

    I'm an international (Jordan) and I received my offer a week after applying. I guess it depends on your course. Relations and Economics/Politics is a very competitive course in Edinburgh so it's likely that they'll take a while!

    Are your offers "minimum requirements" or higher?
