KCL deposit

Hey everyone, I was recently offered a place in KCL's foundation year. They asked me to pay a deposit within a month to accept my place, and I did so about 10 days after receiving my offer. Because I paid by Convera and not debit/credit card, I had to send them proof of payment and wait for them to accept the offer on my behalf, which I did. It's now past the one month deadline, the school hasn't gotten back to me, and when I called them a few days ago, the person said that they could not find my application. Then proceeded to send me a follow up email saying that they would escalate it to the relevant department. On the King's Apply portal, it now says that I have declined my offer because I didn't pay my deposit.
Has anyone else had similar experiences with the KCL admin? And will I still be accepted?
Many thanks x

They can usually reinstate the offer if they find the payment.

i had a similar situation dw it takes time for the. to get back to you and change it to “Accepted” on the website. I had to send them proof in the messages provision on kings apply and also send emails and even reached out to them on whatsapp and they assured me that they’ll get to it and they did. so don’t worry they’ll eventually get back to you they’re just overwhelmed

Hi no it’s okay ask away. Uhm currently i don’t know anyone else on the course i don’t know if there ways to connect to them but i think maybe that will happen later on and on progression the rates are kinda high from the offer holders zoom i attended they showed us the percentages i can’t remember them exactly but most students on the foundation programme progressed into an undergrad at kings
