What is the NFTS Application Timeline?

Hey,

I’m considering applying for an MA at NFTS for 2022 and just wondered if anyone had any idea on the timeframe to be expected.

For example, if I applied now, would I only wait to hear about an interview and then potential offer after the application deadline?

Do they send out all offers/rejections (post interview) at the same time? Have there been any situations where people have heard back relatively quickly or is it usually a long waiting game especially if you apply so far in advance?

Thanks for any insights you can provide!
