    By the way I asked how long it would be and was told the 4-6 weeks but I got an offer today, so it only took me 2 so I guess it just depends on the course demand etc but obviously is a lot quicker than the time stated!

    Hi Katie,

    I just sent off my UCAS application for the CVA and CAA (Animation) courses today, and have just received confirmation from them that admissions have it! I was wondering, is the 4-6 weeks response thing the response time for interview offers or place offers? And also, how much warning will they likely give me before an interview (like will they invite me to come the weekend before or a month or two beforehand)?

    Thanks! Sian
    Hi Sian,

    It's actually looking more like 6-8 weeks now, sorry! Although as emilieneville says, it can be a lot quicker sometimes! 6-8 weeks is usually the time you'll need to wait before we reply to your application. We usually have set interview days, so it will really depend how close your application was put in to this date. We are quite flexible though, so if you can't make a date we can usually offer you another!

    Hope that helps,
    Katie

    Congratulations Sian! Goodness me, that is soon, isn't it? If you're worried, you can always give us a call to see if we can offer you a later date. But I'm sure you'll pull it out the bag!

    Good luck and let us all know how it goes.

    Last week I received a interview invite to study my dream course of children and young people's nursing and hopefully if I am successful in the interview I will be studying at my number 1 uni! It is on the 12/1/16! Has anyone else got an interview for that date and is anyone attending that interview for the same course?

    Good luck to all of you awaiting a decision from Bournemouth! xx

    Hi Sushii

    My name is Amy and I am a student ambassador for BU. It is unlikely that you would be at a disadvantage (it wouldn't be fair on you or anyone else who gets a January date). However if you are worried I would suggest asking Katie or calling up askBU. Both should be able to help.

    If you have any more questions I am more than happy to help.

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for popping along to the BU forum. We're setting up this thread for anyone that's thinking of applying to study with us in 2016. You can ask us questions, chat among yourselves, or meet other people from the course you'd like to study.

    To get the ball rolling, perhaps you'd like to tell us your name and what you're thinking of studying.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Peta,

    Which course are you applying for? Maybe someone else has already had an interview for that course and can offer some advice!
