    Hi, I applied to University at the Start of December 2015 as a deferred applicant, since then four of my five choices have replied. The one university I am still waiting on is Heriot Watt, I know that deferred applications get looked at last in most situations but my last reply was over 2 months ago. My friend is also deferring a year and he received his offer about 2 months ago and it's making me nervous. Should I be worried? Have they potentially forgotten about my application? If so should I contact the university? Thank you!

    I dont think there's any harm in you contacting them and asking when you might hear back.

    Sorry about this Twarmley, you are right the deferred applicants do get left till later but I can imagine you want to know sooner rather than later. Can you let me know what subject area you have applied for and I will give you contact details for the right person to assist you.

    Cheers,

    Hi, I have also applied to Heriot Watt, however not as a deferred applicant, and have yet to receive any response. I applied for International Business Management and Languages: German as main language.

    Hi Rebecca

    If you want to email our UG Admissions Team in the School of Management and Languages [email protected] quoting your UCAS ID they'll look into that for you.

    I have tried to send an email to that address but it does not seem to be working as I receive a failure delivery status notification. Is the HW email system down right now?

    Hi Rebecca

    Our UG Admissions Team here in the School of Management and Languages are still working their way through the 2016 offers.

    They've advised you keep an eye on UCAS Track over the next few days.

    Thanks
