    Okay I have an unconditional offer from Middlesex for Illustration and I'm still trying to decide whether to accept it... I've heard mixed things about Middlesex so far but I do like the look of the course and the tutors seem pretty good.

    So does anyone want to share any opinions? It'd be really great to hear about first hand experiences, too.

    To be honest I ended up changing my mind about three of my choices, so now it's between Middlesex and Lincoln (unconditional offers from both).

    Where did you apply?

    Hey, I applied for Graphic Design at Middlesex because apparently its got a good rep in industry atm, the course covered a lot and the new campus looks awesome =) However, the tutors put me off a bit and they gave me an offer at the interview so I was a bit put off because maybe theyre just trying to fill places =s
    My friend got an offer at Middlesex for photography though and its one of his top choices =)

    Actually lmao when I got my offer from Middlesex I did question whether they were just filling up spaces because I didn't think I did so well in my interview. But then a friend of mine was rejected, and someone who was interviewed just before me came out and said they'd told her no straight away hmm...

    I'm not sure, I guess they must have made a decision straight away or something? I just assumed that most universities do that?

    Lol oh! Hmm not sure then =s still won't be accepting their offer though xD I guess for you, you just need to think about which course would suit you more, what you think about the campus and the atmosphere and maybe employment levels? =)

    My interview went quite well =) I was so nervous cuz it was my first one but the interview literally went really fast. I was only in the room for about 7/10 minutes! Bit scary at first cuz she just started firing questions at me xD but she asked me to talk her through my portfolio as she looked at each piece and then asked questions like what area would I like to work in after uni, whats my favourite ad campaign and why, why did I choose Middlesex...

    Hope this helps =) good luck!

    Yeah you're right I think I'm going to end up not picking Middlesex after all, it just doesn't feel right for me now to be honest haha;;

    I applied for Fine Art at Middlesex but withdrew my choice! They seemed a little bit unorganised and living in London was not ideal for me! I went for NUCA

    hey, i know this threads a year old however thought it might be a useful bit of information for anyone applying this year!
    started at middleseex doing ba illustration this year and can say it is the best choice i have ever made. currently ranked 2nd for illustration behind norwich but im sure that will change soon haha! middlesex has no house style also, so it is tailored towards all individuals very well.
    the tutors are all very big in the industry and theyre work is a great inspiration, and they drag everybit of potential out of you. the course is very fun and we are constantly receiving guest lecturers and out about in london, whether it be viewing exhibitions or location based projects. new campus at hendon is such a good place to be. all the equipment and facilities are state of the art, and you do get the full 9grands worth! definitely worth considering. and definitely worth a look!
