Application to the University of DerbyWatch
I dismissed the idea of doing the BSc as I already have a degree and thought I couldn't get funding but found out that I can due to the nature of the course.
I imagine that my application would be straight forward; I've already been interviewed and I have a First Class Degree in a related subject . However, despite this my application seems to be going nowhere. I applied weeks ago. I call admission weekly but it never seems to be progressing further. I am told that there are still places on the course yet I speak to other students who already have places and they only waited around 3 weeks. I'm really desperate to find out if I have a place as I am a (very) mature student and I have dependants so while the course if very much doable, I need to make arrangements for childcare etc on days when I will be in University etc so wanted to get the ball rolling.
Any ideas of what I can do? Should I just give up the idea of studying at Derby? I don't think I could have shown any more passion for the subject than I have but it seems to be getting me nowhere. The whole process is getting really upsetting now, every week I called admissions and it is soul destroying. They are able to tell me it is being process but not why it is taking so long nor when I can expect to hear back.
