    The deadline to submit applications isn't until January 15 - so they may not even begin assessing them until after this, although most do assess them as they come in. You may get an offer any time between now and the A-level exams period - although if you've already achieved your qualifications, you will probably receive an offer or rejection fairly quickly. Otherwise it can be in quite a broad period, and some take longer than others - I'm not sure about the university in question specifically though. As you've applied fairly early you'll probably receive details earlier than those who apply on the deadline, but I couldn't say how much!

    You may want to have a look int that universities forum on here, and see if there's a 2018 applicants thread - some there might indicate whether they're also still waiting

    I received my offer for my current university on the 3rd of April 2017, so you might have to hang in there a while yet.

    I submitted my UCAS application on the 6th October, I have recieved an offer from one university so far and not a peep from the rest. Apparently one of my choices wont even look at applications until January, so theres a fair wait ahead.

    Glad to see you have made an application!

    I studied Early Childhood and Education at Liverpool Hope myself and it is such a fantastic course!

    Universities do take applications on a case-by-case basis and as somebody previously in the post said - you have applied earlier, which is great, however it may just mean you do have to wait a little longer.

    The Early Childhood course is very popular and so I think it is great that you have submitted an application earlier!

    If you have any questions about the course, let me know and I will try my best to help!

    They might not have yet started assessing applications at your university. Anyway since there is still time and a lot who have not yet heard from their universities you at least have nothing to worry about. Hang in there tight!
