    I've been sent an email from the admissions office asking for me to send them a portfolio for the Film and Television Production course. Part of this portfolio needs to include a letter of application saying why I want to do this course, what I want to get out of it etc. I feel like I haven't written enough and wondered if there was anything else that they want me to talk about that they don't know from my personal statement?

    I've applied as well! Just waiting for a response. Mind me asking what grades you applied with?
    I applied with predicted grades of BCC, yourself?

    Hi!

    Thanks for your message.

    I've managed to speak to the course admissions officer, who has given some advice about how to write your letter of application. As you'll already be aware, all applicants are asked to write about the following:

    - Why have you chosen to study this course at Cambridge School of Art?

    - What are your hopes and expectations of the course?- What do you see yourself doing in the industry?

    - Why should we offer you a place on the course?

    Since all of the decisions we make are based on your interpretation of the questions, it wouldn't really help if you were told what to write. But, we're really interested in your interpretation of the questions. In this case, the most important thing you can do while answering the questions is to be true to yourself. Let your personality and passion shine through. You're aim is to convince the reader that you're passionate about the course, and that you're able to commit to the requirements on the course. I hope this helps!

    I was VERY happy to receive an unconditional offer from Anglia Ruskin University!

    I'm now just waiting on a response from the final university I sent my application to before I can confirm ARU as my firm and then get started with student finance, accommodation, etc.

    There are a few things I am nervous about but overall, I'm very excited!
    Congratulations!

    We're very excited to have you start with us too!

    Hi!

    Thanks for your message!

    I know how nerve-wrecking it can be to wait for a response!

    How soon you get a response really depends on what you're studying. If you drop me a Direct Message with your full name, the course you've applied for and some more details (i.e. whether you've applied to study in January or September), I'll try and find out how much longer it'll be before you get a response. Hopefully not too long from now!

    Did anyone else go to the ARU open day on the 14th November? I was so looking forward to it, went and was so disappointed. Felt really disorganised, all the important talks that I wanted to attend clashed with each other, went to the campus for my subject with a student because there was no one else giving tours, she dropped us off there and said that there would be people inside to give us a tour but it was deserted! Not even sure if I'm going to consider the uni now

Once the admissions officer has had a look at your application, they'll make a decision about interviewing you, and will contact you to give you some more information.

    if you'd like to speak to someone directly about your application, you can call us on 01245686868.

    Hope this helps!

    If you have not done as they have asked then t means your application has been unsuccessful. It's probably just a delay with them updating your application because they have many other applications coming through. It might not be too late to accept their counter offer though, which I would accept as a back up if you don't want to firm.
