    I got accepted for the Architecture course staring this september, for anyone still wondering - all the term dates are up on their website..

    www.gsa.ac.uk/termdates

    I applied for accommodation already, and received an offer for deluxe room in victoria hall eventhough i opted for margret macdonald house..

    has anyone else gotten theirs yet? I was told I was lucky to get anything, but it sounds a bit expensive so i'm quite worried tbh!
    where are you from? ah im not from scotland so i hope they throw me in the cheapest accommodation cause my maintenance loan is not going to go far!

    how important is it to have good GCSE's and A-levels ? Im just about to start A2 and i have been told i can only continue 2 of my 4 subjects, meaning i will only have 2 full A-levels , does that matter to GSA, i have heard the portfolio is the main admission criteria..

    Has anyone had a freshers/induction pack? I think it's just an email detailing the first week, the registry seem to have mentioned it being sent several times, i've had nothing though

    Hi there, I'm an international student and I'm going to the GSA to start my Barch.
    I was wondering if anyone has had any information since receiving word about accomodations. I got into victoria hall, but since then I havn't heard anything. I'm starting to get stressed because I'm leaving Canada in two weeks and I don't know what courses I'm supposed to be taking, or where I'm supposed to go for enrolement, or anything. I have paid the 1000 pound deposit, but I want to pay the rest of my tuition, but I don't know where to do that.
    To be honest I think the school has been really disorganized about this whole thing. I don't even know what apartment I'm living in.

    Does anyone have any insight?
