    Have any applicants from England heard from Edinburgh?

    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?
    Were you given a reason as to why you were rejected? As for a year out, I'd say it depends on how much you want to get into UCL because even if you reapply, there's no guarantee that you'll get in the second time. I initially had the same dream of going to UCL since year 9, but then I went on open days and realised that I'd rather enjoy the degree than spend sleepless nights locking myself in studios overnight to stress and compete against the other students because of Bartlett's expectations.

    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.
    OMG MQ you are here too!! hahah how was it? let's share our thoughts in public.

    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...
    Yeah tbh I was also shocked by their facilities. Was impressed by the vast studios .. And that famous robotic arm. Not too sure how aspirational the lecturers are tho - was quite bored by the lecture and what the dude had to say about the course. But I think I was just comparing it to UCLs constantly . Gonna have to visit again with a wider mindset. Where are you going?

    I had my interview today as well! Which 'batch' of interviewees were you in mq? Also (Cowie and mq), who did you guys get for the interviewer? My interview was the same, he said nice stuff but reflecting on it now I don't think it went as good as I thought it did...

    I had a lady with blond hair.. Cannot remember the name however.
    Thinking over it too much is the worst thing you can do.. It's over now, so you can only wait and see!
    From other responses, it seems as though most people had both negative and positive parts to their interview, so I wouldn't worry!
    It's also very hard to determine what they would be wanting from us.. You may have answered a question in a way that you thought wrong and regretful, yet they may see it as something brilliant!

    You may well have done! I was in a black t-shirt under a grey blazer if that helps? Were you there towards the end?

    Yeah fair. Where are you going to now?
    I've already taken a year out so now that I've thought about it I don't think it's be wise to take another year out. At the end of the day I'll come out with a part 1 wherever I go. I think I've just gotta get over it and myself haha.. Could always do part 2 there. I'll still be in LDN also.

    Firmed Oxford Brookes a few weeks ago Ultimately it's up to you to decide where you want to go and where you think you'll be comfortable

    What does everyone think of westminister?
    Great facilities but not a huge fan of the work they produce and nothing really stands out there for me. Out of my other choices, I think it's the last or 2nd to last.

    Yeah the skinny christian bale guy looked really bored during the presentation, which did look poorly put together.

    Kent currently. Hopefully. But I haven't heard back from them yet.

    Yeah I'm exactly the same. I didn't feel excited by anything. Nothing stood out. I really cannot imagine myself there for the next 3 years. So I don't know whether to take another year out and reapply.

    My interview was quite late in the afternoon, and while I was waiting for my turn I sat in the second row from the front on the right. For the interview I got Mr Carlos Cenamor (if I remembered his name correctly); he's really friendly and seems always interested in what he's looking at, but it seems to be the case for everyone... Tbh I don't know what they're really looking for but I wouldn't worry too much, though I'm getting myself prepared for a rejection

    For anyone applying to Edinburgh and has applied for second year entry -

    I applied for second year entry and quickly received a rejection, after emailing to find out why they offered me an unconditional place for year one entry. I was wrongly advised by my tutors so i would recommend anyone who has done the same or has received a rejection to email admissions as it may be a mistake like mine.

    they usually get around 2000 candidates, of whom just 400 get an interview, only 100 get an offer. it's more or less 1 place every 16 applicants.
