Postgraduate Decisions

Why does UCL take so long to make decision? I applied in October and i'm still waiting to hear back from them. Is it a good thing that i haven't heard from them yet? I've read somewhere no news is good news as UCL usually sends out rejections faster than they send out their offers.
I think this is a normal amount of time to wait. When I was applying I'm pretty sure I heard back from KCL in around January as well (I got an offer) so maybe it's just a London uni thing lol

But its so frustrating!!! I have a few offers from other universities and i cannot accept them till UCL makes a decision.

Oh i applied for Msc Prosperity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I've gone through some previous records of UCL and now i'm thinking is it a possibility that they're not replying because the course is no longer being offered? Or maybe does not have enough students to offer a course? This is a commonwealth shared course for which I've applied and its so annoying that they haven't gotten back or made a decision yet.

I've also applied for the same program in mid Jan and got no news. Any update on your side?

Hello, I'm so glad to have found someone who applied for the same program!.. I received my offer on 3rd february. Hope you get one soon! UCL usually takes time to make a decision especially for our course atleast that's what they told me. If you don't mind me asking where are you from and what's your academic background?

Congratulations! 🤩 Happy for you. So decisions for this program are more time consuming! Thank you for letting me know. Are you going to accept your offer/already accepted or plan to do another course?
I am from Iran, studied psychology.
Any interview for this program?

Hi Hannane, there wasn't any interview in my case and yes the admissions department is taking time for this program. I have accepted my offer. I hope you receive an update soon.;

I believe that course has enough students. Here are the stats from last year: https://www.admissionreport.com/university-college-london/msc-prosperity-innovation-and-entrepreneurship

Nothing yet! :dry:
I'm thinking maybe asking for an indication or a time frame to hear back will be helpful. I'll share their hint here, if got any!
