    I've applied to UWS, Stirling, Queen Margaret, Glasgow Caledonian and Robert Gordon almost two weeks ago, haven't heard a thing from them (only the acknowledgement). A friend of mine told me that it takes longer for them to process european applications...

    Thank you!

    No offense, and a little off topic, but why do non-Brits apply to those kinds of universities? Why not go somewhere where the tuition is free? Are arbitrary British universities really regarded so highly?
    I wished to study in Scotland.
    Also, Europeans don't have to pay tuition fees in Scotland.

    Because Scotland.

    But entry requirements for EUs are often pretty high.

    Economics and History. I'm still waiting for offers from Edinburgh, St Andrews and Strathclyde (Though most of these send out offers once they have received all the applications and processed them. I also applied to oxford but I doubt I have a chance at getting an interview.

    Though you shouldn't worry if you haven't gotten any offers as the deadline for applications is on the 15th of January and many unis prefer to process all the applicants before sending out unis. To be honest I was quite surprised at getting an offer from Glasgow as nobody I personally know has gotten offers this early.
