    Hey and yeah I do.. I'm just wondering if Kingston can offer a grade lower than BBB for pharmacy.. If I don't get the grades but however my grades look decent.. Would Kingston still give offer.. Coz Kingston is just my only choir for pharmacy.. I can't go outside London due to family problems

    Hi Simple_student,

    This would be down to the faculty to decide. Sometimes if the grade is just missed they will let you in, however, Pharmacy is a very popular course and it will depend on numbers and your application. I would suggest getting in contact with the department about any concerns you have and make sure you have a good personal statement as that can make all the difference. There is also the option of doing a foundation year if there are spaces.

    I hope this helps,

    (Postgraduate application) Tell me if i am wrong, but is it ok, that i will send my application in january, but i'm going to take my IELTS exams in spring, 2016? If i will meet the entry requirements and will get an offer from Kingston, will it be a conditional one? Can i prove my English requirements later? Thanks

    I live quite far away (in Norwich) but I sent the uni an email saying I should be able to get to Kingston if they would like to interview me at any point. I'm applying for the psychology course and the creative writing & psychology course. Because this means so much to me, I'm really worried I will go to this interview and mess up big time on things I know and get myself in a muddle or that everything will just fly out of my head and I will just stand there gaping and not knowing what to say! :O I suffer from anxiety and stress quite a lot (and waiting to hear back is all but killing me, haha!) so I was wondering if you have any tips or pointers on what the interview might be like and if it's going to be like an interrogation of everything I'm supposed to know? (my worst nightmare!)

    Thanks ^^

    Hello TheSalman,

    I'm not sure the ratio of applicants and entrants as this will change every year.

    Which bursary are you looking into?

    Let me know and I'll help you as best I can!

    Hi MumNStudent,

    I'm afraid there is no set time as there is a number of factors that could slow them down. Timetable will vary from year to year so no one will know until September.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Hi CallMeQueenie,

    First of all, you are not alone. A lot of students mention this to me as something they are worried about and the lecturers know! I've had experience with the Creative Writing lecturers and they have been absolutely lovely. The lecturers are people too and they know that almost all students they meet on interview day are a bundle of nerves. For that reason they won't interrogate you or ask you questions that you won't know the answer too.

    I also have anxiety and I would say to email ahead and explain the situation (also make sure you apply for Disabled Student Allowance later, it really does help), so that the lecturers and staff are aware that you have anxiety. From what I know about interviews it's based a lot on your personal statement, why you want to study the course and things like that. I've never heard of anyone being interrogated! Just make sure you read over your personal statement so you know what's in it. I know it's hard but try and relax as much as you can, if you've got an interview they must have liked you on paper already!!

    Please let me know if there is any way I can help!

    Hi Welkom,

    Sorry to hear that, I will pass your thoughts on to my colleagues. All of our photos are on the website, have you taken a 360 degree tour?

    Do you have any questions about accommodation I could answer?
