What is your question? We can't help you if we don't know what you want us to tell you.

I'm sorry to hear that you got rejected, but did you ask for feedback from UCL about your application?

Do they reject applicants who have already applied before and haven't made it?

You would need to contact UCL directly and ask them. Usually universities only reconsider applicants if they've made improvements or rectified what caused them to be rejected the first time around. That's why it's so important to request specific feedback about your first application.

Do you think it would be wise if I waited one more year and tried for the next intake or would a two year gap look bad ?

It depends on why you want to wait. If you fill that year with lots of relevant experience and perhaps some relevant study, then great. If you just want to wait so that you can earn more money but not do anything relevant, then the university may not think that it was a wise decision.

You will need to make sure that you definitely get feedback on your application, so that you can spend the next year fixing all the problems with it. The MSc in Speech and Language Therapy is extremely competitive, particularly so at somewhere like UCL, so you need to be very attractive to the university.

If you can't get onto the MSc course, Speech and Language Therapy is also an exception course, which means that if you already have an undergraduate degree, you can apply for funding again from Student Finance for the BSc SLT (if you are a UK citizen).

I requested for a feedback and apparently they don't provide individual feedback.

I have completed my Bachelor's Degree in Speech language pathology and Audiology (dual degree) and passed in first class that is above 60% and completed a mandatory 11 month internship in various hospitals with an O - outstanding grade.
The marking at my university is pretty strict so it is literally impossible to score above 70%. And I have worked for a year at a Rehabilitation centre for children .

I'm guessing that your degree is not from a UK university?

UCL probably rejected you because your degree already qualifies you to work as a speech and language therapist in the UK (you would need to check this with the HCPC first though), or at the very least is too similar to your bachelor's degree to benefit you. The MSc they offer is designed for someone with no SLT qualifications/degrees. If you want to do a master's course that helps you to specialise, you should be looking at MSc courses in different conditions or disciplines (e.g. traumatic brain injury, stammering, speech disorders, neuroscience etc.). I know that Sheffield do a variety of courses like this, while UCL only do a few.
