    Hey guys

    For those of you who have applied for masters/postgraduate courses, how long did it take for you to get an offer?

    I have applied for Queens University Belfast and I read somewhere that they only take a couple of weeks at the latest which is much different than undergraduate courses

    That's pretty standard. I applied and got an offer the next working day. There's a lot less admin needed for postgraduate applications and the combination of smaller class sizes and applications being spread across a longer period helps keep things really manageable for admissions staff.

    I applied to both Stirling and MMU; Stirling were a lot quicker than MMU who have yet to officially get back to me! Stirling replied with my offer within less than a week- it was conditional with the only condition being my reference. Once the references were sent in the offer was changed to unconditional the next day. MMU stated they needed the references before they could process and send my offer; references acknowledged but still no offer!

    Point is moot though as I accepted Stirling's offer.

    Hey! congrats for your offer!
    Do you have any idea which are the steps once you accept an unconditional offer? I accepted an unconditional offer, and the course starts in Sept 2019. When I have to pay my fee?

    Masters should have a different timeline. At Cranfield University it should be within a week or two after the application is assessed or an interview is done. Then it could be a conditional or unconditional offer depending on the documents and other conditions to fulfill.

    For a PhD application, you will probably know if you have an offer or not after an interview -which you will definitely have.

    I presume this is the same in most Unis ?
