Thanks for the reply. I rang last week too and wasn't told about other applicants, just to wait. The Easter hols will probably delay decisions too I suspect.

I have not heard anything yet. No notification from the department and no update from the ICE yet.

However, I spoke to one of the admissions officers and was told that quite a few applicants have already received an offer.

Any news from your end? My status shows the same as yours. So fingers crossed.

Do you have in your admission portal this sentence: "Status: Submitted - Your application has been submitted. Your application number will be generated within 2 working days" and what does that mean?

It means someone in the GAO pigged up a small change they went to make and then went on leave, so no-one else knows what is going on. It's not a status change.

I rang the admissions office today and they said no offers had been sent out yet? Maybe that's what they tend to say as a stock answer. I applied in Feb and haven't heard anything at all

Hi all,

I applied early Feb and heard back on the 17 April that I would be having an interview.

I just had my telephone interview last Friday but I am in a bit of an unusual situation regarding potential supervisors, as I can not have the one originally identified - so I have heard it may take longer to make a decision as they try to find a new suitable supervisor - and I may need to be interviewed again. I have already received an offer elsewhere which I will most likely take up, but want to see this application through to the end.

Good luck to all those who are waiting to hear back!

Hi all,

I'm in the same situation. Hoping to receive an official answer from the Admissions Office soon! Does anyone have an idea of how long this usually takes following the recommendation?

Good luck to everyone!

Hello all, I also applied last February and noticed the following update on my MSt application:

Status: Submitted - Your application has been submitted. Your application number will be generated within 2 working days.

Congratulations to all those who have received their offers!

Did the news of recommendation came in through email or rang up the office to find out? I applied for MSt for another course but there's no news so far since my interview in Feb, so just very curious if I should give ICE a ring. The long, silent wait is so torturous >.<

It comes through the applicant portal even for ICE courses doesn't it?

I have received an e-mail saying I've been recommended and the AO will deal with the next stage of the process. So still not in the clear yet. My status on the portal remains: "Status: Submitted - Your application has been submitted. Your application number will be generated within 2 working days."

I'm guessing once the AO (hopefully) approves the application then the status will change...

So the change in admissions status on the Graduate portal is just a function of how efficient the departmental admissions team are being, and tbh and busy periods, it's a low priority. The priority is getting the admissions paperwork moving around.

That particular phrase "Submitted - Your application has been submitted. Your application number will be generated within 2 working days" is an error no-one has corrected. Circa 18 May, when it appeared, it was a member of staff who tried to change only a specific category of students, but messed it up and changed everyone's submitted message and then went on leave. No-one else could change it, and they still haven't fixed it. I emailed the IT team and asked.

Departments are told every single year that they should not email applicants and tell them they have been made an offer, as only the GAO can make a formal offer. Every single year, some departments/supervisors/administrators ignore that requirement.

I don't think the ICE process is any different, except they have many more applicants with unconventional academic backgrounds, so comparing, contrasting and making offers is very much more complex and therefore generally slower.
