    Congrats to all those who have received their offers!

    I have a question: when I go to my application the Current Status says Application received and currently being processed.

    I noticed that some of you mentioned that your status is under consideration from the department. Should I get worried that my application has been lost along the way and didn't reach the Finance department?

    Mine says 'application being processed on the front page' then 'under consideration from the department' when I click on the little glasses to go to my specific application. Have your references been admitted and processed yet? They'll come up on the page as well and then my application changed to under consideration from the department.

    thanks for the swift reply.

    yes, my second reference was received on Feb 4th, so it's been more than 2 months now.

    oh, I'll need to call them tomorrow. so disappointed, I hope they will still consider my application.

    You're welcome. Yeah, I'd get in contact as soon as possible. Good luck with it! I'm sure it's just gotten lost in translation

    Forgot to mention in my previous post - this is also one of the things that happened just before I got an offer. The current status changed from under consideration to currently being processed. You will probably hear back soon

    The Imperial College forum was missing a dedicated postgraduate thread like this, so here we go!

    Let us know what you have applied for or whether you are still considering applying, and ask any questions you have here.

    Those who have accepted postgraduate offers, have you made any progress in deciding on accommodation?

    I made an application for the MSc in Applied Mathematics and got an offer.
    How long did it take for you to see your academic conditions on the student track service, since receiving you offer email?

    Received the offer email, but how long does it take to actually see changes from the Student tracking service site? It still says application currently under consideration of the department.

    Got my offer to study Metals and Energy Finance around 2 months ago can't wait to start .

    To those worrying about application being under consideration for a long time etc. you have to understand it has to go through the registry before it even reaches an admissions tutor which could take several weeks.

    In my case there was only one tutor responsible for accepting students, It took well over 8 weeks from the time my references had been received for a decision to be made.

    That's odd, for me I didn't receive a formal offer email. Instead the tracking system simply changed one day and showed 'Conditional Offer' under the status tab, and to see the conditions I had to click on 'my application' and the conditions were written under items outstanding. However at that point I did receive an seemingly automated email from registry informing me that a decision had been made on my application.

    It seems that each department deals with admissions slightly differently. At the Imperial postgrad open day they said that in general applications get initially filtered through registry, then get sent onto various admissions tutors, then go back through registry again before the final decision is given. This may be why it takes so long for some people.

    I might email them now and ask for a formal offer letter. I don't want to miss out

    i. I am an international student from Hong Kong and i have received an offer from Imperial to study the MRes biomedical research and another offer from UCL. However, I cannot decide which one to attend because of funding options ( will be announced around June). I know Imperial have deadlines for reply to offer (28 days) and I have already emailed the course director and course administrator about a possible extension to reply. I havent heard anything from them yet. Anyone have similar experiences before??Also, I am planning on applying for the Faculty of Medicine Dean's Master's Scholarships from Imperial. I will secure a 1st class honours degree and around 3.6 GPA. Anyone knows if I stand a chance?

    I requested an extension for my offer too. I ended up talking to the admissions department up a couple of times over the phone, and eventually I got an extension of a couple of weeks beyond the original deadline. I don't know whether you will be able to get an extension all the way up to June however. Either way I would definitely suggest you call them

    It is nice to know someone else has done so. May I ask which department do you belong? I think even a few weeks extension would be ok. In that case I can still accept my offer and use another 28 days for the 10% payment to see how things go. I would definitely call on Monday. Hopefully things can work out...possible fundings for oversea fees can be a huge game changer.
    I actually thought about this problem before I applied to Imperial -- that's why I submitted the imperial application only during mid february. I expected to hear from them around april but they offered me the place mid march, kind of messed up my plan.

    Mathematics department. If you phone up and explain your situation they will likely give an extension even if it is just a week or two

    For those frantically checking the e-service for a response to their application, this information might be useful:

    A day or two before getting my offer, slight differences appeared on the tracking website, for example the year of entry (or whatever it was) column with '2016/2017' changed to 'Year of Admission or Programme Start Date' with the exact start date of my particular course. There were other slight changes too. While I can't be sure whether this was simply an update to the system that sort of coincided with me getting an offer, if you notice your tracking service change at all it may suggest you will be getting a response pretty soon!
    This happened to me today. I wonder what my conditions will be
