    Hi, I've chosen 12 artists so far. Think I'd rather do them in more detail rather than choosing loads. I'm so nervous about this project! I can't wait to start the course tho and meet everyone. Which halls is everyone staying in? I'm in cayley x

    Hey guys, It's kind of nice to hear I'm not the only one who is confused!

    When it says cultural influences I just assumed it meant the artists influences, not ours :/ but then it says "should include contemporary artists/ designers eg. films, writers, books, journals, articles, history and events"

    I could take this to mean either the things that have influenced their work or how i could apply my own cultural influences like they have. Or something like that, I don't know. I'm going crazy over thinking it.

    For me it makes more sense to focus on the the artists influences (this word is really starting to annoy me) and their technique.

    Arrrgh please help me!

    p.s. "Begin by clearly stating title, artist, medium and date"....huh?

    YAY i'm in the holt too!!! So excited! I think for the drawings maybe a bit of the artists work and maybe like illustrations of connected cultural influences and stuff like that. It's all a bit of a confusing project this one, but at least it's not being assessed - unlike the photography, now that one is worrying.

    Hey i called them up pretty much the same day i wrote that message - i got my log in details from them over the phone, but that should ave been sent with your freshers pack now anyway? otherwise yes do call them up
    To log in to your email:
    go to the loughborough website
    click on current students (in the box on the right where it says 'information for..."
    in the purple bar along the top of the page it says 'webmail'
    click on that it's take you to an iGoogle page
    in the box that says e-mail click and it'll link you to a log in page - put in your username and password - it hopefully should work!

    the same credentials will let you log in to the union website

    good luck!

    * October.

    Bit late now, but for future readers, I don't consider myself amazing at art (mind, not bad), but the main thing I think is doing well in the drawing task they set you to do before the interview.

    I got in on a conditional offer (two Cs this summer) so... idk, maybe I'm better than I consider, but I don't reckon it's half difficult as long as you have some decent draftmanship skills

    P.S. if anyone from L'boro is reading this: I'm thinking of applying to the Birmingham URNU (University Royal Navy Unit) as I *may* want to consider it after Uni, and just generally find the RN interesting. Should I bother at foundation, or wait until I'm at undergraduate before considering URNU? Cheers in advance.

    From what I've heard there seems to be a lot in Butler Court and Harry French..

    I've been put in Village Court was hoping for somewhere a bit closer because I can never get out of bed in the morning and I'm always late!
