    Hi Daniel,

    Aware you've PM'ed me, but figured I would answer publicly as it will be more helpful to the lurkers.

    Our admissions teams tend to work on a first come first serve basis with applications, but are steadily working through them. Usually at this time of year the average turn around time is usually a few months. We get a lot of applications and have quite a small team compared to other institutions.

    Rest assured, if your girlfriend applied to us through UCAS she will get a decision.

    Hope that helps

    Hey... I just wanted to ask how long did Aston take to respond when you had sent off your application...
    It took around a month, maybe month and a half.
