    Oh cool! I'm from London. Where else did you apply out of interest? I can't wait to go to GSA! Although at the moment I know nothing about when it starts, accommodation. I guess we will know later.

    i got my offer the other day - an unconditional for vis comm. but it's for the first year not the second which i applied for (as i am already doing art foundation) i just wondered if there are any other people who are starting in the first year who have done foundation?
    obviously i am thrilled that i've got in but i'm worried about being older than everyone else! (19)
    sounds stupid but if anyone can let me know that would be lovely

    Hey! I think the age range for the first year is always pretty varied! I'm 24 and going into first year. My ex also went to GSA and he said there were was people of all ages in his class...from school leaver-age to a couple of people in their forties

    I'm a bit worried too, the whole first day at school thing! but it's going to be so much fun! haha

    It's textiles I'll be doing. Its good that they mix up the students in the first year though, so that you get the chance to work alongside people who aren't necessarily going to do the same specialism as you from 2nd year onwards

    yeh i think you're right, get to meet people with different ideas and stuff. creativity generally rubs off on other people.

    I've lived in Glasgow, on the Southside for about a year now, its only a ten minute bus ride into town so it's really handy. Did you come up for the GSA applicants day in January? and did you get the chance to visit the halls?

    I'm looking forward to getting into the vic (the art school union) for free, they have some really good club nights on there!

    Yeah, they looked really nice, quite small, not like those student villages you get at bigger uni's. They are right behind the art school too so very handy

    Has any one applied for accommodation yet?

    Also, what is first year studies, if you do textiles, is first year studies just your first year at GSA then you continue to do another 3? The vic looks crazy! Can't wait!

    i'll be sending my application tomorrow i think. hoping for margaret macdonald halls.

    if you do fine art or design then there is a more broad year of study in the first year, then you go on to specialise for the next 3 years.

    i cannot wait!
