Hello, I am a French student applying for Oxbridge as well as other universities. I have sent my UCAS application a few days ago because it was the Oxbridge deadline. My question is: do non-Oxbridge universities make decisions before the deadline (in January) or do they wait for it before replying to the applications? In my case, I applied for KCL, UCL, LSE & Warwick. Thanks!

Yes, sometimes they even issue offers before 15th October :lol:

Sometimes they do but in certain subjects like Law they make most of their offers after the January deadline, so don't worry if you haven't heard anything by the end of the year.

No, you will not necesarily know about the other Unis before you know about your Oxbridge applicatiion.
Universities have until May to make all decisions on applications submitted by January 26 - see https://www.ucas.com/ucas/events/fin.../type/key-date
You do not have to make any decision about any offers until June and whilst you may wish to have all of this sorted out earlier, the reality is likely to take much longer.

Yeah, they can give you offers basically whenever they feel like it.
