    Hi,

    I have a level 3 business qualification and four years experience in Marketing. I've applied for international business/marketing courses at Chester University, Lancaster University, Huddersfield University, Sheffield Hallam and Manchester Met.

    I still haven't heard back from any of them! I only applied on 13th January but I was wondering if I would have to wait longer? Also, is it likely they invite me for an interview instead of sending an offer??

    Help! I'm losing patience and I'm so eager to hear back, I check track five times a day.

    And do you get a letter/email before it goes on to track??

    I know that, I just don't understand the process to be honest. I've had nobody to talk me through anything from the start, having applied on my own, so I really don't know what to expect. Especially since there are so little resources for mature students, I have irregular qualifications that are not tariff listed and I've never met another mature student!

    Plus it's my future, so with it being on my mind constantly it does feel a little longer :/

    Hi Laura

    You will be fine, UCAS will send you a direct email saying there has been a notice or activity on your profile etc. I'm sure you will hear back soon. Good luck 😉
