Congratulations to those admitted and best of luck to those that did not make it - I am sure you will have an excellent year wherever you go!

Does anyone know when we should expect to receive the funding decisions?

Many thanks.


I assume that will be in your offer details, no? Unless you are talking about the Gates scholarship, to which other deadlines apply.


Thanks. I'm talking about scholarships other than Gates. I think that the funding decisions are to be issued after we get the College admission. By the way, how do you plan to fund your course?

Well I saved for two years while working, so I'll be able to cover tuition by myself. I'll take an interest free student loan to cover living expenses.

Hey everyone

I received an offer this morning from Ms Wade via email, but I've had no update on my application status. I know other people have had this issue, so how long did it take to change/update? It's making me anxious haha

Thanks!

I received my admission email from Ms Wade a week ago. My status was changed to "Awaiting approval by GAO" on last Thursday.

I see, many thanks for the answer.

On a different note, is there anyone else who received an offer at the beginning of last week and is still at department stage on the Portal?

Much appreciated.

Same! I guess it takes some time to process all the applications. I think I read somewhere we would have all updated by the end of next week.

Same here. I received the email from Ms. Wade on the 6th and am still under review by the department. I don't think we have anything to worry about, there just may be a lot to work through for GAO.

Please note that GAO is responsible for processing THE ENTIRE UNIVERSITY'S GRADUATE ADMISSION DECISIONS. Yes, the entire university. All departments. All Faculties. All admitted students. Postgrads, masters and PHD. All of them.

Therefore it is natural and expected that it takes time to get down to decisions. They are dealing with quite a bit of decisions. They will definitely get to you. The best thing is that the decision has already been made by the Faculty to admit you. Thats all. GAO is simply an administrative function; check that all documents are on file and were received. Unless something is substantially wrong and off in your file, GAO will not make a contrary decision to that of the Faculty.

Strange that they call this kind of institution "graduate" admissions office. :p

Small edit effected; All masters, all PHDs, all postgrad. Undergrad came in by mistake as they have their own undergraduate admissions office.

What are your conditions? And how long did it take for you to receive the offer from the GAO?

Can't speak for myself but a friend received the formal email some days ago. She was given the link to a self service account and was asked to provide authenticated copies of her transcripts and proof of ability to pay. :)

Hey Y'all

I need your opinions. So for my back up plan in the UK, I also applied to UCL and LSE. It is more likely that I might be going to one of these unless Cambridge decides to change their mind and offer all 3 of my desired modules or I get accepted to the US universities with a scholarship. I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on which university in london is more prestigious abroad, UCL or LSE? I would appreciate anyone's contributions and reasoning for their answer.

I don't think it would be worth it paying £15k + 12k living expenses just to study one of my desired modules and 3 other modules I am barely interested in. It would be stupid to invest in the LLM only just for the university's title, its bad enough we can only study 4 modules compared to 6-8 plus a dissertation at other universities?
