Hi guys! How long after submitting did it take for your applications to be registered in MyEd? It’s been four days since submitting and I still haven’t got access :/

I got the email to register at MyEd almost immediately after creating the application. Have you checked your spam folder?If its not there, I suggest you email their support team.

Yes, something seems to have malfunctioned in my Applicant Hub. Thank you for the suggestion.

Hi guys,
Anyone apply for the MSc in Economics? I've completed my application in mid-October and still haven't had any updates. My application has been on the status "All Details Received" for a very long time... :/

Hi guys, I am planning to apply tomorrow for the MsC Economics, but I was just wondering if I get rejected in the first round, could I apply again in the second or third one? Thank you!

To Marsann:

PG admissions take around 8-10 weeks on average at most universities, speaking from experience, especially for oversubscribed courses such as the one you are applying to. They'll probably start reviewing your application after the deadline, once they have a larger pool of applicants to choose from. I suggest you check out Gradcafe to search for your course and get an idea of when in the year applicants usually get their decisions.

@Marsann I also applied in early October and have the same status. I’m going on about nine weeks and no word. I am hopeful to get news before the holidays...but my program (history of art) doesn’t have a deadline until August 2020 so I’m not sure when they will start looking at applications.

Félicitations à toi aussi, et bonne chance !
I really wasn’t expecting to hear back this year.
Also, apparently the deposit/acceptance deadline element I was worried about isn’t universal. My offer didn’t include any.

Congratulations!!!
How long did it take to hear back from them?
In terms of accommodation, Edinburgh seems to have a pretty good range of options (both private and uni-owned). Personally, I would like to live at Buccleuch Place, it's literally a 30 seconds walk to my department in George Square (Literatures, Languages and Culture)
Thank you!
I feel like I had the fastest application turnaround ever.

Hi! Just to tell you that I'm not receiving any email updates from the applicant hub, and I had to upload additional documents (which I learnt of by checking the application itself). I'm sure its a glitch, but just in case, be sure to check the hub once in a while!

Hi all,

I'm currently applying for a Masters at Edinburgh, and am a little puzzled by how to divide the personal statement between the two 'boxes'...
1) Please give a short statement that describes your academic interests, purpose, objectives and motivation in undertaking this postgraduate study. (max 3500 chars – approx. 500 words)"
and
2) "Relevant Knowledge/Training Skills (max 3500 chars – approx. 500 words)"

For example, discussing your undergrad degree and how it links to the degree being applied for seems like it could fit both (academic interests, and relevant knowledge). Any thoughts on this? I don't want to repeat myself, nor miss anything important.

I think you can talk about your undergrad degree in both answers but its really the latter question that gives you room to 'show off' your undergrad degree, in terms of what you have achieved, research skills etc. The first question should really focus more on you personally, in terms of your academic interests as they pertain to the prospective course. You can obviously reference your undergrad degree, of course, but you should be working to show off your independent academic interests, i.e. that your 'passion' for the subject extends beyond what you have been taught at university. TLDR; you should divide your answers into 1) what you want to do and 2) what you have done that will support what you want to do
