Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone else has applied to this course? I have applied for the part-time course (Jan deadline).

I have been reading the thread from last year - I don't think people start to hear back until Feb time but would be interested to hear about others' experiences or if anyone knows anything about the selection process?

Cheers!

Hi sb_247, I've applied for the full time program and haven't heard back yet. When I emailed them a few weeks ago about the timeline, they said results are announced around mid-Jan 2022. I'm not sure if the same applies for the part time program.

Fingers crossed!

hi guys ! I’ve applied to the same programme (full time) by the Nov deadline. From past threads, seems like only part time applicants are usually invited to interviews … Really hoping to get an answer by mid Jan !

I applied for the program (full time) before the November deadline. A friend of mine who got admitted a couple of years ago heard back just before Christmas. I guess they're a little slower this year.

Also applied full-tim by the November deadline! On Gradcafe it seems that people usually start hearing back around Jan 12 earliest. It’s getting close!

My upload documents button disappeared sometime within the past 24 hrs. Guessing we’ll get decisions back on Monday (for November deadline).

Nice! Mine is still there although I applied for the same deadline.

Does anyone know if the upload button disappearing earlier is more likely to mean a rejection? I feel like it would be easier to load all the rejections into the system first

It could probably mean a lot of things or nothing at all. A good way to figure out is to go to last year's thread and see whose button disappeared when, and when they got an offer/rejection.

Mine also disappeared sometime during that time frame. Hope we hear back soon!

How does everyone feel about the strength of their applications? It will be interesting to see if we can figure out the mystery of the upload button soon

I feel moderately strong about mine. Overall I think it was a very good application but I’m not sure I am the kind of person they’re looking for.

Upload button could also be based on how early we submitted our app. I submitted mine Nov. 6.

Maybe, but I submitted mine on October 17 and my button is still there.

Tbh it’s hard to say. My upload button went awhile ago. Realistically I am not sure if I have a good chance because this degree is so competitive and there are plenty of exceedingly capable individuals applying! I feel as if it is one of those instances where we will only know for certain once results are handed out.

I applied for the November deadline and am so nervous! Does anyone know if you get rejected on the full-time course can you re-apply for the part-time March deadline? Also, do you all have firsts? I've a 2.1 but hope the rest of my application will stand to me.
