Congrats on your UCL offer! If you don't mind me asking, when did you apply and are you an international student? : )

Thank you so much! I applied at the earliest date possible (so very early October) and then heard back in mid January from them. I'm a home student <3
Hello! Applied to Durham, LSE, UCL, KCL and Royal Holloway. Got an offer for RHUL and Durham but rejected from LSE... I applied in mid-October but the application status for both KCL and UCL hasn't changed since :/

Don't worry, I got rejected from LSE but got an offer for UCL!! LSE are very very nitpicky for who they let in (I got rejected on the basis of 1 gcse grade), whereas I don't think UCL are as strict. Best of luck!!
I've applied for IR at:
- LSE (no reply)
- UCL (no reply)
- QMUL (offer!!!)
- SOAS (offer!!!)

As a backup, I also applied for Global Humanitarian Studies at UCL, of which I got an offer for :smile:

Not gonna lie, I'm way too nervous about UCL. Applied to Bath (offer), Manchester (offer), QMUL (offer) and I'm waiting on Kings and UCL now. Applied with AAA, but I think I'm in over my head with UCL. Best of luck to everyone!
For those that got a rejection, can I ask, what was the reason given for your rejection?

Thanks so much! I got an offer from UCL yesterday which I'm so pleased about. Still waiting on LSE but if not, I'll firm UCL and insure Durham :smile: how about you?

Congrats on your UCL offer! If you do not mind me asking, when did you apply? Are you an international student? and what are your predicted grades?
