    I have applied to Winchester University due to not being able to move as I have a family! So this is the nearest uni which offers the courses that I need.

    I have applied to three education study courses and the primary with QTS. The primary one is the one I want, but if I am rejected then I will take one of the education courses.

    Last Friday they offered me a place for two of the education courses, which is great! And I am now waiting to hear back to see about the others...

    Maybe I’m being negative but could these be rejections because they’ve replied to the other two? OR am I just being super impatient!? Wondered if anyone else has been through the same too!

    If you had been rejected, it is likely you'd have been told. If they decide they do not want to make you an offer, there is no value in them waiting to communicate that decision.

    There are various reasons this might have happened, for example:

    1) The person(s) who make final admissions decision for that course are different and have not yet met to make those decisions.
    2) Your application is being held so it can be compared against a gathered field of applications at some point in the future.

    I suggest just waiting. However, feel free to contact the university and ask them if anything strange has happened. They won't mind checking the status of your application typically, and it will put your mind at ease.

    Congratulations on receiving the offers you have, and good luck for the outstanding course.
