    Hi, I'm Erin

    Course applying for: Neuroscience
    Predicted/achieved grades: different because EU student, but something equivalent to AAB
    Current offer status: haven't applied yet
    What made you apply: I really like the university and city from what I've seen online, plus they have the flexible degree structure that really appeals to me.

    I'm going to the open day in two weeks and unless it's extremely disappointing I'll be applying soon

    I’ve applied for Psychology at the University of Glasgow already, and I have met the requirements. I heard that there’s a policy that if you have more than 4 A’s for Higher, then you get an unconditional immediately for most courses (probably not Med and Law) but surely Psychology is fine? I have more than 4 A’s for Higher, and few people I know have applied with more than 4 A’s too. But they all got an offer immediately (2or 3 days after applying) but It’s been a week and I still don’t have one. Is it possible that something went wrong on my UCAS application? I’m scared😟

    I have heard that Glasgow does really fast offers (and my friend and I have gotten an offer back within 24 hours but we both take IB so it might be a bit different) so I'd expect you to have an offer soon.

    With UCAS I'd suggest checking if you school has sent it in, if you're applying through them. I know it took mine a few days for them to send it in, so it might be that. If you're worried about you application you can check through UCAS track to see if it's been 'referred' to Glasgow perhaps?

    Anyway I don't doubt you'll have an offer sometime soon! Maybe the psychology department is a bit slow for some reason

    Congrats on your offer! And yes my application is definitely sent away and referred. Do you reckon I will get notified if something went wrong with my application? Might just have to wait and hope for the best! Thanks for your suggestions!

    Thank you!

    And I'm not actually sure if you would get notified, but I really don't think a bit of extra waiting is necessarily a bad sign even if it certainly feels like one. Just keep you email open and see if anything comes in.

    Best of luck!

    Hi everyone! Have yet to send off my application but I am so excited to do so, just waiting on my teacher's reference!

    UCAS choices
    (in order of where I most want to go) St Andrews, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen & Stirling

    Course
    French - however I definitely know I want to do 1 or 2 other languages along with this just haven't decided which ones yet.

    Qualifications
    National 5s - AAAAAA
    Highers - French (A), English (A), History (?), Spanish (?), Physics (A), Mathematics (A)
    Advanced Highers - French (?)
    ~Additionally I am doing a YASS course with the Open University this year in beginner's German.

    Why Glasgow?
    They have a great language department and the city is easy to get to from home. Also, I know the university itself is very well-respected while still being highly loved by students who go there.

    I'm in the same position as you! I applied for history and maths at Glasgow about a week ago but haven't got anything back neither, not even an acknowledgement. I'm hoping its just normal for some courses, or maybe cause I've applied for a joint degree?

    And hi! My grades are 6As at higher and I wanted to apply because I love the course and the university itself looks amazing. The flexibility is also a positive!

    Omg me too, I got 6A’s for higher too! Maybe they need more time to consider people with 6A’s 😂 although i’m not doing a joint degree.
    Just out of interest, have you also applied to Oxbridge since you’re early in applying?

    I've applied for English Language and Literature.

    I haven't even received an acknowledgement of my application and i sent it off two weeks ago ;/

    Kind of worried because my application is supposedly strong and my predicted grades are enough for the course yet they're the only uni to be completely silent with me...

    Ahaha now that would be ironic! I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping something will come through soon. And yes I am! I've applied to Cambridge for single honours history (St John's College). Have you applied to Oxbridge too?

    I applied for psychology at Glasgow on the 13th and just got my unconditional yesterday so don't worry you'll probably get a response soon!

    Yep! I’ve applied to Oxford for Psychology
    I was thinking maybe Glasgow doesn’t like early applicants, but I know people who have already gotten offers and they’re applying to Oxbridge too
    I guess all we can do is wait.... i’ll keep you updated if I get anything from Glasgow! Good luck to both of us 😂
