Hey guys!

This thread is for the people who are applying/have applied this year to study at UofG.

Did you receive an acknowledgement or offer?
What course(s) have you applied to?
What other universities have you applied to?

I'll start: I applied to MEng Electronics and Electrical Engineering and have also applied to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Heriot-Watt.
Applied 7/09/2019 and got an acknowledgement on 9/09/2019.

Hey!
I'm an English applicant so I'm thinking it's going to take ages to get an offer (or a rejection lol) for me. I applied to common Law on the 10th and and got an acknowledgement email the same day. We have to do the LNAT for Glasgow so they only give offers after they have our marks for it. I also applied to Oxford, Durham, Leeds and Cardiff.

update: got an offer yesterday (30/10/19)! So happy!

I'm an EU student, so I will be waiting for a few months as well :P

Hiya,
I applied 3/10/19 from England to study English Literature - I got an application recognition from Glasgow on the 8th and by the evening of the same day I had received an offer! It was a quick turnaround.
I've also applied to Cambridge, St Andrews, Edinburgh and Cardiff.

I was really surprised tbh - I thought that most of the Scottish unis are meant to be quite slow (but I'm definitely not complaining!)

I applied for comparative literature/film and television studies on the 15th of October... Still not heard anything from them, not even a confirmation. I'm really spooked cause they're known for getting back to students quickly and I haven't gotten a confirmation.
Also applied to Stirling, Strathclyde and Goldsmiths

That's weird, I got my acknowledgement in just a few days after sending the application. But don't worry, it hasn't even been a week yet for you

Maybe I should send them an email asking if they got it...?

You definitely should. You should also keep in mind that some universities have even longer waiting times: I applied on the 7th of September and Strathclyde has yet to acknowledge me, I even emailed them and the admission officer for the department said it wasn't forwarded to him yet.

I called them yesterday and they said they'd received it, so that's good. Apparently the media and communications stuff hasn't started looking at admissions yet. So that's a relief
