    Yep, I have just received an e-mail this morning

    Dear VICTOR

    Thank you for your application to study at Edinburgh College of Art onto the:

    Course: BA (Hons) in Graphic Design
    Entry Level: Year 1
    Academic Year: 2011/2

    We would like to inform you that the mini portfolio you submitted has passed stage 1 of the assessment process for the Course and Entry Level stated above, and you are now invited to attend an Applicant Day/Portfolio Assessment as follows:

    Date: 28/Feb/2011
    […]
    However their site says that applicant days are from 28 February to 18 March, so I think that they'll send out invitations later if your applicant day is later than 28 February. It's very likely that they give various priorities to their e-mail dispatch.

    Don't worry if you haven't heard back from them yet, it will probably come during next week
    Good luck with your application!

    Wow, that's a long way to come for an applicant day/interview! Maybe you could email them and ask? I'm getting really nervous trying to pull everything together and pick the best, don't want to take too much or too little! x

    I'm coming from London for the applicant day on Tuesday! I looked at easyjet as well but I found the cheapest and easiest is to get an overnight train. Its about £66 return with a rail card and arrives in good time for the interview.

    Hope this help!

    For Rozee
    I graduated from Eca couple of years back. Photo interviews are casual and relaxed. If u r applying from outside and not from foundation chances are you'll have the head of Dept. interviewing you. David is gr8, really chilled. To appeal to him talk about conceptual photo. He loves asian photographers and philosophy and loves to make music links to art.
    throw in a few darkroom based work.
    make sure you are well versed about practising contemporary photographer and reference them. don't be afraid of showing experimental work.
    STAY AWAY FROM TOO MUCH EDITORIAL WORK!
    hope dat helps. gd luk!
    as for graphic design students ... gd luk the dept is very BITCHY!

    i'm getting the train from kings cross straight to edinburgh! don't ask me how much it costs because my mum works for the railway so it's free for me! only 4.5 hours which isn't too bad i don't think!

    Hi everyone!!

    does anybody know if we are going to be interviewed during our applicant day at ECA?
    in the letter it says that we are not and also in the applicant day guide it doesn't mention any personal interview...
    ???
    what do you think?

    has anyone been on a applicant day? what happened? did you got interviewed?

    thanks!!!!

    Went to one on Monday and there was no one-to-one interview.
    take that as a possitive or a negative!
