    Is any one here applying UCL's History of Art with Material Study? I feel like only a few people are interested in this particular course.

    Hi, I have but I've not heard back yet which is a bit worrying, I'm hoping they're just waiting till after the 15th. I think it's my top choice, at least, it's between UCL or the Courtauld, neither of which I've heard from The course itself looks fascinating and seemed the most appropriate considering I want to do conservation afterwards.

    Yea, it's worrying because I submitted my application and questionnaire in October and it is my top choice because I'm interested in conservation as well! And I feel like I didn't do well enough in the questionnaire

    I haven't even been sent the questionnaire! I'm very excited to meet someone who's also interested in conservation. When I spoke to the head of admissions for the conservation post-grad at the Courtauld she said the UCL material studies was one of the best for going on to conservation. Have you looked at going to the conservation workshop on the 17th of Feb at the Courtauld?

    Hey guys,

    I am almost done on my university choice. So far I have UCL, SOAS (Asia, Africa, Europe - joint degree with UCL), Edinburgh, UEA. I am reaaaaaally thinking about my fifth choice. Maybe Goldsmiths or Birmingham or St Andrews...... either one. I'm not 100% sure I want to live in London, this is why I'm doubtful about putting 3/5 London based ones. Maybe I will let go of Goldsmiths in favour of Birmingham - it just sounds like fun living there. Other than that I am a Bulgarian student with grades that equal A*AA.

    I have been toying with the idea for moths, but today I decided that if I actually get in, it's gonna be too much effort And I am not set out on becoming a world-class scholar, so I don't think the hardship will be worth it. It just seems overly academic, and I don't know if I am a very academic person.... but we'll see, I'm still a bit tempted, it's Courtauld after all

    Has anyone else got an interview for the Courtauld? It says we have to do a written test comparing two unseen works

    Yeah, its worrying I've heard from/ got offers from all but UCL which is really annoying, hopefully, they'll send us it soon. I would have thought if they were going to reject us they would have done it by now.
