    My favourite is Nottingham but tbh i would be happy to even get into a university at this rate! what did you get last year/what are you predicted may i ask.
    and what grades is the urban planning at newcastle i may have to consider that!
    I have 420 UCAS points from previous study and I also done a nursing degree but left that and went onto an access course in art and design.

    I also applied for Nottingham but got rejected. think the one for Newcastle may be ABB. Sheffield have also asked me for a portfolio for arch+landscape but I think I'm happy to stick with Northumbria.

    You'll be fine!

    To those that got rejections from UCL after the task.. How long did it take for you receive that reply
    I didn't get rejected myself, however I know people that did. They were declined pretty fast from what I know. Mine took a while to back to me for an interview, so good luck

    Rejected from UCL after sending off my task 3 weeks ago. Absolutely heartbroken. Really don't want to go anywhere else... I'm already doing an art foundation rn so do u think it'd be stupid to take a year out and reapply?

    If you're set on going there, you should do anything you can to get there, so another year out is an option. Or you can go there for post grad. I just think it's very narrow to just aim to go to one place.

    I did. I rang them after a week of submitting and apparently there was a bit of a backlog but I got my offer a few days after I think Northumbria have a certain way with applications, not sure if it's in batches

    If you'd rather not take a year out, I'd recommend going somewhere where you'd actually enjoy the working environment and then apply to the Bartlett for part 2

    I really would not mind taking a year out even though I've taken this year out to do an art foundation. I really cannot imagine myself on the other courses I've applied to besides Manchester. But I'm from Manchester, so i wouldn't like to stay in the same city for another 3 years. .. What do you think on taking another year out?

    Just had my interview today at UCL.. Felt very rushed (may be as I was last to be interviewed). Not really sure how it went.. There were good points and points I reckon not so good..
    I was wondering whether there was a significance as to the order in which you are interviewed?

    So far I've got offers from Cardiff, Kent, Manchester and Newcastle but I have no idea what I'll put as my firm. I'm torn between Newcastle and Cardiff but I'll only get to visit Newcastle so I don't know how good the facilities are and the general feel is like at Cardiff. Hopefully, someone can give me some insight on what Cardiff was like when they visited?
    personally i really liked it and would be my first choice out of those 4. I thought the people seemed open minded, and the course had a really nice level of conceptuality, not too crazy, but not too conservative. They city is really nice and there is this street which is 'student street' where some accomdation and the student union is. As Cardiff is a capital city, it certainly has character. Also, the people at cardiff seem really nice. The Part II work on show was really good, one of the work won a RIBA medal or commendation last year.

    I was really impressed. The facilities look really good. It's a huge department. They even had robotic arms and stuff. However i feel like due to the huge numbers on the course, you will be exceeding your tutors low expectations, rather than meeting their high expectations. If that makes sense...

    Also had mine today... Apparently the interviewer liked many things that I showed him, but he also said things like "it's better if you can try something on a larger scale." Don't know if he's implying that I'm less able... Totally confused! As for the order, I don't think it really means anything. Maybe alphabetically, I guess?

    Also I'm pretty sure I saw you today at UCL; I'm the Chinese-looking guy in a white sweater.
