I just barely applied to Glasgow Caledonian University, Queen's University Belfast, and University of Edinburgh.. and I plan on adding University of Glasgow once I get my damned track number.. if I ever get it... ?
In fact, I feel really stupid for not putting Uni of Glasgow on the list to begin with..

Do I still have a good chance of getting into Caledonian and/or University of Glasgow, seeing as how I applied so late (and in the case of Uni of Glasgow.. not yet) ?
How long should I wait to get my welcome letter before I need to call UCAS and get it from them? I would call them now, but it's really expensive as I am in Russia.

Thank you much.

someone told me it wasnt too late for me to apply at unis in england. i wanted to apply to manchester & salford. i have the application ready, i just need to submit it.. i have the reference and i wrote the personal statement (yeah i kinda put in the fact that im not from a super rich family and i mentioned the tragic past we have. but that all kinda relates to what i wanna go into - international relations)...

i was wondering, when is it too late for an intl student to apply? im in canada right now, so im applying as a canadian student. whens the cutoff date? i heard for us its not till june? is that weird.. or is it right?

also, what can i do to fund my stay? if i get in id definitely apply for a scholarship.. but oi, i dont think thatd be enough. i definitely want to go.

any suggestions??

I have applied to two universities for September, I will be going as a mature student.  I have had one offer back so far which was from UWE that was an unconditional offer. Originally my first choice was UWIC which I am still waiting to hear from, but now UWE is sounding like a better option.  UWE is about half the travelling time from where I live and both cities have a shul to go to. Decisions, decisions.

Hey, have just stumbled upon this community as a person in need of a little lots of advice.

Basically, I've had all my offers in and I know that out of the six there are only two that I want to go to - either Exeter or Warwick university. I had initally decided that I was going to go to Exeter, having thought that Warwick were going to reject me (I only got the offer this morning!) but now that I've been offered a place by Warwick I've become really confused. Both of them have good and bad points but at the moment I really cannot decide between the two. 

I love the campus at Warwick but I think Exeter is a nicer town than Conventry (no offence to anyone, I just like the countryside feel to it), so they are tied there, and both the courses are really excellent. I am literally in a deadlock here, I cannot get myself out of this quandary.

If anyone out there knows the universities, can offer me advice or anything, I would be so, so grateful.

Finally decided.

Even though Sussex may be a wee bit better I can't see myself living in Brighton for the next three years of my life, so I've gone with Reading as it's just like London but a bit nicer :)

Firm - Reading - Biochemistry
Insurance - Sussex - Chemistry

Can't believe I've done it, it's only take me 3 months.

So... this morning, I was pleased to find an email from the head of admissions for the school of history at the University of Nottingham. I was congratulated on being offered a place to study at the university... So, it seems, I'm in.

I've searched the Uni of Nottingham site on the net, but I want to know if anybody else has any other opinion of this place.

I live in the USA so I am not able to visit it to see what it's like.

Have you had all of your decisions yet?

Have you been brave enough to select you firm and insurance choices?

Hi, I don't know whether or not this is the place to ask for advice, but I am applying for a scholarship and need help wrting a personal statement. I want to be a history teacher, I come form a very poor family, and I excel in high school. Any tips/openeing sentences/catch phrases i should start off with or include? Sorry in advance if this is not allowed.

I just got an unconditional offer! I'm really happy and I just need to tell someone! Haha.

I'm kind of excited, but at the same time really sad to be leaving my current University. (I made people cry... I feel so bad.) But at least now I can go get some work experience somewhere more suited to me, and I have something to look forward to in October. I think I'm happy and it's the right decision. I just hope I don't regret it later.

But, unconditional! I remember when I was taking my A-levels thinking 'What the hell do you have to do to get an unconditional offer? How can someone be that special?'. Haha. And now I have one, I feel special. Special for dropping out of university...

To those of you taking your exams this year: good luck! And really don't worry so much. I worried loads. Remember, it's not a life or death situation. And even if you don't get into university, it's not the end of the world. I mean... I used to think it was, being brought up that way and going to such a good grammar school etc, but there's honestly no need to worry about it. At all.

Oh, and also! If anyone's worried about starting University... again: don't! I know everyone tells you that, but seriously, there's nothing to worry about. Everyone's in the same making-friends boat. And as far as I've heard from my friends at other universities as well as here, it's such a sociable place/time. You'll enjoy yourselves, I promise.

And for the record, I'm currently at Loughborough. I love it, I really do, I'm only leaving for a better course. Not because my course is bad, in fact, my department's got a pretty good reputation, I just don't want to do this for the next 3 years, let alone for a career once I graduate.

Right, I'm going back to jumping around my room with excitement now! And then I have to pack... I apologise if I haven't made much sense!
