I'm applying for university next year and was wondering how long does it take usually for you to hear back regarding an interview?
Also, after the interview, how long does it take to hear back regarding an offer?

My uni choices for Primary Education with a QTS include Greenwich, Middlesex and St Mary's

I really wouldn't worry about this. I applied and within 2 days I had an unconditional offer. My other choices took weeks longer.

The universities you have applied for will get back to you in due course and you'll have enough time to decide which one you want to go to.

Some take weeks, some take months, some take the piss.

Varies per uni and per course.

Search TSR for "Fastest and Slowest Offer Senders" and you'll see the threads for the last few years charting how fast your unis send offers out.

Hi Caitlin,

After you have done the application, it usually takes up to six weeks to hear back. Then, once you have done the interview, a couple of weeks more.

I am not sure if it works in the same way for all the universities, that is how it works for Middlesex

Hope it helps.
Have a great day

In my case, I got my first decision a week after I submitted my application and had all 5 replies within 2 weeks

Is it true that prestigious universities get lots of applications so they are slower? Or is this just a myth?

I don’t know if it’s possible to generalise as such, but I do believe that they’re likely to have a lot more applications coming in. Not entirely sure if it does affect how long it takes for them to reply substantially though.

I got a decision from Edinburgh within 2 weeks of sending off my application.
