    Hi

    I sent my application through UCAS and have just received an email from the University I applied for, inviting me to an applicant day. I have checked UCAS track and there has been no updates on offers etc....

    Is this a good sign to be invited to this??

    Thanks!

    A number of univeristies use the term to mean offer-holders only so it could be a good sign. You'll just have to wait and see!

    If you don't receive a track update within a couple days then it may not mean anything .

    I'm a mature student so only able to apply to the one university as I have family commitments so keen to get the place as it's my only chance this year!lol I will have to sit tight and keep fingers crossed for now! To be honest I wasnt expecting anything just yet as I only applied just before cut off date. Anyway I've booked onto it so will wait and see!

    An applicant day is just for applicants - people who have applied. It does not mean that you will get an offer. So it's neither a good nor bad sign, as they will just invite all applicants.

    Read the email carefully, because sometimes they will hold an interview (or informal meeting). If not, it is just so that you have the chance to see the campus, talk to students and tutors, and learn detailed information about the course.

    Thanks. Yeah there doesn't appear to be any mention of interviews etc. It states what will happen during the day bit like a timetable but thats it. Well I'm booked on so a good opportunity to speak to lecturers etc even if nothing else at this stage!

    It is a good thing it didn't mean that you are garentead a place but providing you meet ther offer they are prepared to take you. I would say go it's another chance to ask questions see the halls and you also it's tailored tobyour course you will see there are lodes of people will be there go to one In the week thougth as that will give you a better feeling of what the atmosphere is like . Also once way The dat is over there is nothing stoping you from getting (a late) lunch inthr canteen or SU bar or if it,s a uni in a city walking round the town. I remember in mine we had a talk and the we turned it It block then we gad a chance to meet the lectures and some students then we had a halls tour then it ended and i went to the canntean ( really nice food) for a late lunch then we went in town (me my brother and mum) and we came home with a Cinnabun (if you don't know what that is serch the net) it was really with wile for the info a Cinnabun.

    Thanks for your reply! I've had a look on their application process and it mentions they invite people to applicant days once they have given you an offer?? I still don't have any offer yet but I am booked onto the applicant day so I'm sure I will find out more when I attend
