Anyone else applying? I've just submitted my application. Really hope I get in as UCL is the only Russell Group to offer a conversion course in London!

Yay someone else What background are you coming from? No idea - it says apply early due to competitive nature but can't find any stats anywhere!

Undergraduate degree in Neuroscience, so still pretty related. How about you?

Completely different - did undergrad in politics, wanting to convert to psychology! It's quite different to other conversion courses offered (e.g. Edinburgh expressly says this is for applicants with unrelated degrees) so I'm not sure of my chances but I live in London so it would be easiest!

Has anyone received a response?

AFAIK the department received triple the amount of applications since they've renamed it to psychological sciences from 'research methods in psychology'.

Funny what rebranding can do ey?

EDIT: forgot to add there were approx 300 applications made for about 30 spots last year.

Hi, just wondered if any of you have received a response and what the turn around time was from when you submitted the application?

They have put a comment on the course page: "students are advised that we will not be making any decisions on applications until late March/early April 2019."

Hey guys

So I see that they said on their website they are not making decisions until late March.
I put one of my two referee's as my employer...do you think I should change it to another academic one?

Weirdly enough, I feel quite relieved that I donโ€™t seem to be the only one who hasnโ€™t yet heard the outcome. Just hoping them keeping us hanging doesnโ€™t mean No-offer.

Thank you! No I wasn't. I even checked portico this morning and nothing had changed. It came through directly into my inbox from the teaching administrator and then they said portico will update later.
