    I received my offer 9 days after sending away my application in December 2014.

    *That moment when you realise you did UCAS 2 years ago*

    IR though? Cool! I did that in 2nd year. And I really am doing it this year too, tbh

    That's such a fast offer, awesome! They sent me an email saying they'd start looking at apps & sending me more stuff after the 18th of october, hoping for a response before too long(:

    How do you like IR?

    Yeah, it was amazingly fast.

    IR is ok. My degree is Politics but a lot of the modules for Dundee are IR focused.

    I was wondering, I have yet to send in my UCAS application, but how long does it normally take for a reply concerning interviews? Thank you x

    That really depends. Interviews were still happening in March 2016 for 2016 entry!

    I won't say anything about my grades here, they're so different from the UK ones lol. But I'm a bit afraid if they'll be good enough! I've heard some stories from other Finnish applicants that applied there, and the offers they've got have been pretty high... But we'll see, I sent my application last week

    AS or equivalent grades: AB
    A2 (predictions or achieved)/ Equivalents: A*AB and A in AS Further Maths.

    Just wanted to ask if Dundee sends you an email confirming that they received your application. My school sent mine 3 days ago and recieved confirmations from three of my choices but not from them. I know that some unis don't send one but I'm not sure if Dundee does.
