Given the Covid-19 pandemic, how long do you think it shall take Universities in the UK to respond to applicants?

Will the next academic year starting in September even happen?

Hi! I can only speak from my personal experience with regard to your first question. The decision timeline for some courses has been extended by 2-3 weeks, but because of the volume of applications.
Till now, I have not experienced any Covid-19 related disruptions, except for not being able to call the Universities and having to wait a lot in order to receive a reply to my emails. However, I completed my applications almost 2 months ago. I do not know what will happen with just-completed applications.

When did you apply?

I sent off my application to UCL mid Feb and my references got sent by 5th March.

I have also failed to call and get in touch with Universities myself.

I see. In this case, some delays may occur. Hopefully, someone else will have information to share
