You do not have any obligation in case u accept an offer. Why do you hesitate?


I quote QMUL :

"Once we have offered you a place on a programme of study or research, setting out any conditions associated with the offer, and you have accepted it, you have entered into a legally binding agreement with QMUL. If you want to withdraw from this agreement and cancel your acceptance of an offer, you must notify us within 14 days of the date that you accepted the offer:

For applicants applying to us through UCAS, this means 14 days from the date that you accepted the offer as your Firm or Insurance choice in UCAS Track.
For applicants applying directly to QMUL, this means 14 days from the date when you accepted your offer in your online portal.
You must let us know in writing of your decision to cancel the acceptance of your offer. Once you have done this, your offer of a place on the programme will be withdrawn".

They don't give further details in case you want to withdraw after these 14 days ...
I suppose the offer is binding ...


Did someone e-mail QMUL asking if there is a fine or something?


Nope.

[quote][quote][quote][quote][quote][quote]Everyone, any news from KCL ?!
i's been ages !![/quote]

Nope... Last year apparently they were the quickest to give responses... Now it seems that they are the slowest :-/[/quote]

I am also very worried because I have to reply next week, did someone apply in october, and already completed the 6 weeks?

I still have about 20 days to give an answer. I guess someone who's deadline is getting near will ask.

On the e-mail I received from QMUL they say the offer is binding once accepted.

Last year I accepted 4 unconditional offers from QMUL, Durham, Edinburgh and Aberdeen and I deferred that of Durham. I was not under any obligation towards any of them.

For example, that statement was mentioned in my Edinburgh unconditional offer: "In order to secure your place, you must respond to this offer by 03/03/2016 as competition for places at the University of Edinburgh is very high. Please note, by accepting an offer, you are not committing yourself to study at the University. Accepting your offer helps with our admission process and may help you in applying for funding, accommodation or a student visa (if required)."

I have accepted the conditional offer of QMUL. In its email, QMUL wrote, "If for any reason you decide not to take up your place, please inform us as soon as possible. " Where is the 14-days limit mentioned above?

Hey guys! First of all congratulations to those who have already received offers and good luck for those who are still waiting.
I received and offer from QMUL 2 days after I sent the application. I wasn't expecting them to reply so soon as I sent out applications to UCL KCL Edinburgh,Durham all in the same week. i hope that they send their reply within 4 weeks (although UCL will probably take longer).
According to terms and conditions of QMUL after we accept we will only have 14 days to withdraw our application but it doesn't say what will happen if we do withdraw later than 14 days.
Personally I will accept the offer the latest that I can and if I get offers from other universities I'll decide then where to go. I mean it's not as if they're going to charge us for withdrawing our offers (or at least I hope they won't)

Maybe someone knows what used to happen in proevious years? As I'm sure loads of people have withdrawn their acceptance before.

I swear there is no responsibility for cancelling any accepted offer. It is so normal to accept all the offers you get to reserve a place and then attend the program you prefer. You just accepted the offer and you have not even get the CAS.
I believe that all universities apply what I found in Edinburgh offer "In order to secure your place, you must respond to this offer by 03/03/2016 as competition for places at the University of Edinburgh is very high. Please note, by accepting an offer, you are not committing yourself to study at the University. Accepting your offer helps with our admission process and may help you in applying for funding, accommodation or a student visa (if required)."

Hey! Congrats to all of you! I'll be applying soon too and still now sure what my chances are to get accepted but I'll give it a go - therefore I wanted to ask about your work experience prior to applying, was it a year or a month, and do you think if it can really boost your application?

I did a couple of different internships, but none of them was that long :(

thanks!

Hi!

I've only got 2 summer internships, and got an offer from QMUL and UCL. So don't worry! Just apply anyways. I think the most important part is the personal statement, as long as you demonstrate your strong interest in a particular field and demonstrate that your personal/professional experiences are consistent with your ambitions (don't forget to outline these too!), it should be fine :)

Good luck!

And did you need to send TOEFL/IELTS as well, if yes, did you send it together with your application or are you planning to do it later?

And a bit silly question, but I am curious to ask - is it possible to apply for different LLM specialisations at the same uni?

I have an LLB delivered by a University in the UK so QMUL did not ask me for the TOEFL/IELTS, but UCL asked me to as part of their conditional offer. I passed the IELTS, but they asked me to send the results later, when I'll definitely register with them. :)
