International Student - Chances of Admission to Edinburgh for PsychologyWatch
I recently applied to UoE's MSc in Psychological Research (as an international student) and am wondering whether my application will likely be successful. In addition to a UK 2:1 honors degree in psych (or international equivalent), applicants must provide a (very short) personal statement and (only!) one reference.
My undergraduate is in psychology, my GPA is 3.85, and my letter of recommendation is from one of my former professors and it's strong. I think my personal statement was good enough; the prompt was really straightforward and easy to answer.
Compared to American universities, this application process seemed way too easy, especially for a prestigious university like Edinburgh.
Any idea what my chances are?
If you are international student, then you pay more. If you pay more, then Edinburgh will 100% accept you if you meet the minimum requirement. It is fairly easy to be admitted to Edinburgh as an international student.
Maybe! I guess it depends on what their research strengths are; I haven't even looked into them. But I'm also really interested in the idea of living in another country for a while. We'll see what happens!
