I have just had an interview today. It was for an MFA course in fine art media. I would say it was very casual, letting you speak a lot only interrupting when prompted by something you said.

It may be a different case for you guys if applying for a BA.

Hey,
I've got an interview for Slade and I'm starting to get worried about it too, I was just wondering, even though they're work is generally contemporary does that mean they expect most of your knowledge to be of contemporary artists then?

I would expect that they are looking for atleast a mixture of knowledge in both contemporary and more old school work. I imagine they would appreciate historical knowledge, to show you have a good understanding of the foundations and context of art. However if they see you are interested in whats happening currently I suppose it goes some way to showing your enthusiasm for art.

I had mine yesterday too and I'm freaking out today too, don't think I expanded on what they asked me enough, so worried about it now, but I suppose there is nothing that can be done now I'm hoping my work will get me through it. How did yours go anyway?

Yeeah, the old dude with the glasses? he took them on and off all the time and kept chewing on them.
In the administration thing the woman said to me that if you are unsuccessful then they will get back to you in 2 weeks but if you are successful then its more like 3weeks.

I think my issue was that they didnt seem to want to talk about my art itself, but were rather asking me questions about my way of working and how i would respond to the environment in slade. i also had a total blank of contemporary artists and ended up sounding pretty ignorant. do we find out by post for both rejections and if you got a place? or is that done through ucas?
i think the interviews are going on until half way through next week so hopefully they can decide soon. Oh god it was so bad when they took photos of you stood with your work at the end...

Congratulation!
Did you have mail from slade?
Are you applying for BA or BFA?
I haven't got yet any e-mail.
They are said to me that if you are rejecting get an e-mail within 1 week
Or if you are pass the interview get an e-mail within 2 weeks.
I interviewed 14th March, already 1 week passed.
In My friend’s case, one is already got a reject e-mail the day before yesterday.the other ucas track changed to conditional on yesterday,but she didn't got an e-mail from slade.
I’m look forward to good news!!!!!!!!!!!!!
