Hi guys, its been a little more than a month since applications opened. I thought we could share a little about ourself and our course. Also, we can help each other out with queries and the application timeline.

I'm applying for Social Research Methods, and Cognitive and Decision Sciences.

As my goal is doctoral study, the methods course would give me needed methodological practice, whilst the cognitive course gives me the chance to try combining psychology with politics. Skills versus inspiration!

References were confirmed on the 17th of October, so two weeks down!

What do you mean by 'processed'?

Both of my references were completed last week, for Computer Science. Based on some of last years thread I expect to hear back after 6 weeks.

Anyone know the different tracker stages?

Hi folks,

I've applied to Psychological Sciences and my references were confirmed shortly after.

Anyone else applying (have applied) to the same course or another course in psychology?

Cheers,

Potato

Oh, by processed I meant them acknowledging payment and sending out reference emails.

For me, it was "Application is being initially assessed" -> "Currently being processed by admissions" -> Offer

Hope this helps!

2:1 for me! But I think it can vary depending on the course you're applying for.
