LLM Bristol/Edinburgh


nbg19

Hello all!



I am an applicant to the LLM programmes at Bristol and Edinburgh and would very much like to connect with those who are also applying/have received offers from these Universities.



So, just to get this thread started: I come from a small country in South East Asia, work in the public sector and am applying to several programmes with strong Public International Law courses. I have yet to be accepted to any programmes, but have been moved to PAO stage on Cambridge *finger crossed*



Just want to ask whoever has applied to Bristol or Edinburgh: How long does it take for them to make a decision on your application? For Bristol it is said that they aim to make decisions within 21 days - but my application has been submitted for 15 days and it is still showing up on the portal at the stage "Submitted". Is this normal or is there a glitch or something outstanding in my application that needs to be added? Could not find an answer on this forum or any other so I guess I should just start a thread.



Cheers!

Hello, 

I applied to the University of Edinburgh, too. I think I have submitted my application at the beginning of February and my status hasn't changed since then. 
Hope to hear something within the next weeks.

I submitted my application on 25 Feb and was put on hold just a few days ago. I found out that there was some issue with my reference only by logging in the portal to check and now my application is at "Being processed".

What is weird is that on the Bristol portal, my application is still at "Submitted"....

Hey there!

I had submitted my Edinburgh application on March 3 but the application was put on hold. Only when my referee submitted my recommendation on the portal on the 11th, did the status change to "Being processed".

I applied to Bristol and i got an email yesterday from the university. It’s an application update email. This is what it said: 

“...Apologies for the delay on your application. We are currently experiencing a high volume of applications whilst also being short staffed so the response period may be longer than usual. I can confirm that we have received your application and it has been checked. The Admissions Team will review your application and you will receive an email with the decision shortly....”

It’s been 24 hours and i’m still waiting. I thought shortly means shortly lol. Who else got a similar email?
