Waiting for Imperial, UCL and Manchester. I applied on Jan 13th (it's not that long ago compared to many others who have been waiting for longer than I have) for MSci Chemistry and have heard back from Bristol and Sheffield. I had my Imperial interview on Feb 2nd, and haven't heard back yet.. I know the London unis will take some time to respond, but idk why Manchester are just ghosting me like this :/ I just wanna be put out of my misery

I can relate! I applied to Westminster and UAL back in October. Heard from Westminster in December (they asked for a portfolio) and then NOTHING after that. As for UAL, these guys just responded with an interview invite. Silence after the interview. 🥲

Hey I’m a Manchester applicant as well! Like I said I applied in October. Manchester responded with a conditional offer on 29th November. They’re surely taking their time!

I applied to Bath, Southampton, Loughborough and UEA for NatSci on the 17th of November and still haven’t heard from Bath. The rest have all given offers and Loughborough and Southampton even interviewed me. Bath are blaming it on COVID and BREXIT but all the other unis have managed to get back. I’m getting close to just making my decisions about who to firm without waiting for them.

It took about two weeks to get an offer from Southampton after my interview so there’s definitely no need to worry about imperial you might hear back soon but it seems like it’s taking a while for other people too. I wanted to apply to imperial but an ambassador said not to bother because I have a 5 in English language. Manchester are really popular so that might be why they’re taking a while. Have you looked at the forums to how long is it taking other people to hear back from these unis?

I mean they have valid reasons but that doesn’t mean that they can leave us students in the dark for all time! Many of us could have utilised this time to sort out other important things like finance and accommodations.
