    Hi,


    I'm interest in the Msc in Artificial Intelligence at Edinburgh. I'm looking for opinions from current/ex CS or AI students/grads on whether my current credentials would be considered...

    Degree: Chemistry (Scottish university) (1st Class)

    Relevant Courses: Mathematics (Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Topics in Applied Maths, Topics in Linear Algebra and Calculus). Statistics. Computing Science (a full year python course).


    I have since moved on to work in Finance in London and have used CS (python) for applications in natural language processing. I'm aware my academic experience is light on the CS front but I believe should be appropriate on the Maths/Stats front.


    Thanks,



    OP

    I do AI programming as a hobby, haven't dived into the maths too much though

    You may have just missed one of the selection deadlines? The impression I get is that they batch viewing applications.. you should be included in the final one.

    Hi,

    Did they tell you if there are being delays?

    I applied about three weeks ago, the status is still 'New, we have received your application' and documents are pending verification... So, is these common?
