Hi all,

My application (biochemistry) went off today. Just wondering how long it takes for offers to start coming through in people's experience. Not too bothered about getting them within days, but i think it will be quite fast, whereas my mum thinks they won't come in till november/december.

any experiences/stories?

thanks and good luck to everyone else applying!

How soon you'll get offers depends on both the strength of your application (which shouldn't be a problem for you, by the looks of things) and which universities you applied to — some are a lot quicker to respond than others.

Some universities make it their policy not to send out any offers until after the January deadline. Bristol is one of them, I think.

Southampton got back to me in a matter of days (I think 3). It really does vary from university to university.

I applied last year and deferred until 2009 but when I sent my application off in November I got an offer back in 6 days, mind due I'm a mature student age 22 so I've already got my qualifications which probably was the reason I got a reply back so quickly.

I wouldn't worry though, I'm sure you'll get the place you want.

Best of luck

If you dont get an offer - are you accually told "no" - or do you just not hear back?

It comes up on track that they have rejected you

OP - mine took 2 days for Birmingham and about a week for the others (ignoring the time they weren't working over christmas holidays)

mine varied soo much, manchester got back to me first, then leicester, then oxford, then LSE. this was all before the start of december. i had to wait until march for kings.

so, in conclusion, it depends on your uni, but the strength of your application will depend on the timing of your offers and the offer given.

I sent in my application a few days before the Oxbridge deadline and my first offer came after two weeks, but I didn't get my last until about 6 months later. It really depends on the uni though.
