    Hi all. I am applying to Stirling and Dundee University for Primary Education. I've received acknowledgement from both and I'm just waiting to hear further news. I think I have a long wait ahead! Is anybody else out there applying? Does it take a long time to hear back? Good luck to everyone 😁!

    Me too! What specialism did you apply for? I went for literacy and numeracy. Also applied for Dundee, Aberdeen and Strathclyde. My school is so slow though and still hasn't sent my application.

    That won't affect the outcome of your application.:nah: But it's nice to get it out of the way

    Have you introduced yourself in the applicants thread?

    Yep, just there now! I'm slightly nervous as I can't get out to see these unis but I've looked at the courses and something is really swaying me to Stirling! I just want the offers back now.

    Hi Emma. I've chosen my specialty in Early Years. I'm more drawn to Stirling as it is closer to home and the campus is beautiful. As a mature student I've got other responsibilities as well, so for me Stirling is my number one choice. I'm desperate to hear back but I think they wait until the UCAS closing date and then send out offers/interviews. I don't know I'm just guessing! To hear back would be awesome as it it would give me more enthusiasm to get through my National 5 Maths😩! Do you have any more qualifications to get?

    It depends on the university and particularly on the department.:yep:

    This might be of use to you regarding that.

    Just to say also that if you haven't already then do check out the Mature Students forum too.

    HiI am applying to do literacy at Stirling too! My school's deadline is Friday so I feel like I am quite late in sending my application off. Do you think I will be at a disadvantage? Have you heard back from them yet? Do you know if all offers have an interview?

    Yeah I heard back mid December with an unconditional but I don’t know anyone else who has, I only know a few that have been rejected. Don’t worry, I know it’s stressful waiting but I hope you hear back soon! x

    That’s great, congratulations! Just breathe and try not to rush your presentation! It’s very informal, it felt more like a conversation to me! Did you apply for Dundee? x
