    It can be anywhere from a few weeks to a few months but do chase them up if they've given you timelines that they haven't stuck to or if you haven't heard anything for more than 4 weeks at a time. Not everywhere will tell you if you've been rejected.

    I had an e-mail from Edinburgh a week ago saying they'd get back to me in 4-6 weeks and I heard back yesterday, seems remarkably quick! For my application to St Andrews, I heard in early February, having submitted my application mid-January. Hope that helps!

    I was wondering - do you always get an email when an offer is being made or do some unis only use the application portal to communicate with applicants? Any experiences ?

    can be both ways but most send you an email informing you that they received your application. Universities at london have a very high amount of applicants and therefore usually take longer to reply. for king's i waited liked 6 weeks for my reply while from universities that are not located in London it took like 2 weeks. If the university takes longer time than its stated in their website to reply maybe you can send them an email to verify that they received your application.

    For Edinburgh I received an e-mail to say something had changed in the portal, I checked the portal and I had a conditional offer. St Andrews I just received an e-mail.

    Oilfreak1, which program did you apply for? Yesterday was 8 weeks from them receiving my 2nd recommendation. I'm wondering if I should send them an email or wait a bit longer.
