Hello
I am an international student.
I have applied to LSE this summer for 2020/21 for Media and Communications but I have been placed on the reserve list and later got a declined offer due to the full capacity of the programme. I had the option to reinstate my offer for 2021/2022 before October. This means I I do apply, i will be one of the first applicants.

My question is:
1. Do they grant applications on a first come first serve basis? Meaning if I apply earlier does my chance of being accepted increase?

2. And my second question is, do you predict that, for international students applying for the 2021-2022 academic year, there will be a higher flux of applicants, and therefore will it be more difficult to be accepted?

You're posting in the post-grad forum.

If that's correct then probably not. The fiasco this year only really affects undergraduates, maybe post-grads in 4-5 years, but not next year. No idea about grants.

1. Yes, your chances increase the earlier you apply IF you meet the requirements obviously.

2. Why would there be a sudden increase of applicants? People that want to go university, will. Nothing has "actually" changed.

Yeah! But what about the situation with COVID-19? A lot of people have differed their place for next year.

Yeah! But what about the situation with COVID-19? Didn’t a lot of international postgrad applicants defer their place for next year due to the uncertainty for this year?

If I think you have the kind of offer I think you have (deferred entry for 2021 since you're already an offer holder?) then wouldn't you be fine anyway? Potentially yes, there may be more applicants, but remember that those deferring are usually the minority in any case. Either way, post-grads will be affected far less than undergrads. I wouldn't worry since post-grad entry is normally far more flexible anyway.
