    I've applied for Master of Social Work at 5 universities and have yet to hear anything. One of them rejected me almost immediately because I didn't have 6 months experience in the UK (I do have 4 years of experience in Social Work, as well as my BSW), and I'm an international student from the US. I had a couple ask for more documents a month or two ago, but I've heard nothing about interviews or anything. All of them require interviews, but I'm not sure when they start sending requests. I applied in mid-December. Should I be concerned that I haven't heard anything, good or bad?

    Don't worry too much about it as there are many people who still haven't heard back

    I also applied in mid-December, for Primary Teaching for 4/5 of my courses, and although i've had some offers, one of my choices hasn't sent me anything and I also need interviews for all mine, and since you're an international student i presume they'd be even more of a delay, so don't worry
