    Hello.
    I'm an international student who applied to the Foundation Course in UAL.
    1st choice CSM, 2nd choice CCW.

    I sent my application at the end of December and still heard nothing ..
    (Btw I did not include a portfolio because I live in the UK and went/go to school/college here)

    Both CSM & Camberwell have replied to me saying that they will contact shortly to invite me to a portfolio review in due course = interview, right? This was 10th February.

    Is there anyone else in the same situation as me?

    Apparently all replies are being sent out via email and letter on Friday (For CSM) !! On facebook they've said its deffo going to be on Friday but to an international student they said it will be withon the next two weeks but that was nearly a week ago so not long now! I think everyones pretty much in the same boat.. I've only heard of a few students, who live outside the UK and who had their review back in December, with a conditional offer already. No UK/ EU applicants seem to have heard back yet. Hope that helps

    Well, I haven't even had an interview yet ..
    'but to an international student they said it will be withon the next two weeks but that was nearly a week ago so not long now!'
    By this does it mean the result of the interview or the application?
    I know international students who received offers already for the foundation course and am getting extremely annoyed and worried, haha.

    Hello.
    I'm an international student who applied to the Foundation Course in UAL.
    1st choice CSM, 2nd choice CCW.

    I sent my application at the end of December and still heard nothing ..
    (Btw I did not include a portfolio because I live in the UK and went/go to school/college here)

    Well, I scanned a copy of my application form just in case
    and realised my e-mail address was slightly wrong so contacted them
    to check my application status as well.
    Both CSM & Camberwell have replied to me saying that they will contact shortly to invite me to a portfolio review in due course = interview, right? This was 10th February.

    I was also lucky that the e-mail address I wrote wrong did not exist
    so made another account.
    I am constantly checking both of these e-mails.

    To others it may seem like I'm over-reacting but UAL is my first choice ..
    Sorry, I am getting worried + impatient + panicing as each day passes.

    Is there anyone else in the same situation as me?
    Wait, so you applied to both? Your only allowed to apply to one? And if your worried then why don't you ring up?

    I didn't apply to both. I'm an international student and it says on the form to write down 2 choices. My 1st choice is CSM and 2nd is CCW.

    Got a reply from them on their facebook group saying that my interview will be after Easter Holidays .. I am scared that there will be no places by then :^S
    I don't get why it's so late!!

    I am confused.... Am an international applicant, waiting to hear from CWW. I thought I was supposed to find out the results no later than March 25. Well emailed them on Monday 28th asking what's up and their reply was "All decision letters have been sent out via post for the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design. You should receive yours shortly"

    Oh great. It's Thursday already... no letter in the mail. I'm giving up. ehhhhh... I'm pretty sure I didn't get in anyways, would be nice to know for sure tho.



    You should receive it shortly.

    I am not completely sure but if you look at the application form it has two options for choices on course and college so I applied to both CSM and CCW ..

    I only applied to CCW, I thought you're only allowed to apply to one foundation at UAL. I could be wrong. Would have applied to both if I knew I could. I'm so discouraged, really want to get into photography and doing a foundation would probably be the best way to get started.

    hmm well i know that as a UK resident we could only apply to one UAL college... maybe you read it wrong, chose two options instead of one .. i have no idea this is so weird
    but they do get thouands of applicants so they're bound to muck up on a few ?

    Ok. Good.

    I still haven't heard from them. Should I email them again or what??? Usually it doesn't take this long for a letter to come from the UK to Finland. Maybe it will be here tomorrow. Anyways, I have a feeling I didn't get in so I'm trying to come up with something else to do.

    Still waiting. i hate this... i'm gonna email them again if the letter's not here tomorrow.

    I have applied to a couple of schools here in Finland also. We'll see what happens. I would like to move to London, so maybe I'll find something else to do there. Short courses or something.
