Basically repeating everyone, but most courses open on 1st November (as of an update just a couple of days ago) although the 20/21 Grad prospectus isn't updated yet, I'm sure it will be soon though There are 64 courses available atm for 20/21 application, but they are like dentistry and educational types

The only effect could be that if it’s a very demandes course, it’ll fill up soon, so you may not have a place. However, I think January is not too late, so it may not have any effect.

Great Thanks!

How is everyone’s application process going? I have seen that some people have received rejections already, don’t know about offers though.

I applied on November the 2nd and I am under assessment. Haven’t heard from offers either, but I know some people who got accepted the first week of December last year.

Yes, you can check in the ‘status’ of the applicant portal if your application is unsuccessful or if you have an offer.
I think if you get a conditional offer, they’ll email you. But I’m not sure if they email rejections. Does anyone know it?

Thanks! And yes, sure.
I completed the application on Nov the 2nd.
My two references were submitted by the 4th.
Got the offer two weeks later, the 18th.
