UCL/KCL/LSE/QMUL


Hi! For UCL, do you know whether the word limit for the written work is a strict one? They stated 750 words. I have an essay which is 800 words and I am not sure how to shorten it. Would they consider it if I submit as is?

I just received an Email from UCL, thanking me for my application and stating that my application has been received. Further, it stated that response can be expected within 6 weeks of completion of application and references.
I had applied on 12th December, with references uploaded on the same day.
Did anyone else receive this email?
Thanks!

Me too. It’s the same one you get upon submission, right? I even got nervous as I thought it was a decision, haha! Something went wrong surely.

Edit: I’m checking the portal now and the status of my application is no longer visible, nor am I able to access its details.

Edit 2: Back to “Under Assessment”.


Haha! Let’s hope it’s a sign of things moving forward. I am hopeful we hear something in the next 2-3 weeks.

I received the email from Admission staff told me that “It shall not exceed 750 words”

Received the same mail as you.

Well, if they reset the timer now for how many weeks we have to wait, then the original 6 weeks starts to look a little different

UCL status has changed to “Currently being processed by admissions.”
As appears to be the case, one will get a decision by 12am GMT after this change of status. I’m anxious.

I should probably let you guys know that I got an offer from UCL last night. I got an email informing me that there's been a change of status and I should log into Portico.

Congratulations to those who got offers from UCL!

Have any December applicants seen a change in their application status?

It’s an anxious wait.

Hi, I applied on 4th December and still no news or change in the status :(. Maybe we should call them or send an e-mail.

Nothing yet from UCL, in contrast to LSE.

I guess it takes a little extra time with respect to the upgraded LLM programme, but some weeks have passed already..

Dear all,

Question: For those who have received an offer at UCL, are you required to make a deposit?

According to the knowledge base of their website you have to pay a deposit for the LLM programme.
However in the application it is stated that you MAY have to make a deposit. Someone enlighten me, since I have now waited 9-10 weeks for a final answer.
