    p.s. what do you guys mean by more structured? Does CSM have fixed classes ? They were so lame at explaining me at the interview. So great to have this forum.

    Also, GS seems to have a stronger Art Research department, is that true?

    I have an offer from chelsea as well. the campus and staff are so friendly it's a really welcoming atmosphere but, to be honest, it seems a bit like a "bubble". Also, i've talked with some of the students and they've complained about it being "too free", the studio space seems quite small and they don't have darkrooms...

    Hey guys, on the topic of chelsea - I'm STILL waiting to hear about a course change thing since around start of February time... I don't know if it's worth the wait and I'm starting to get worried they've forgotten about me! Any advice/ anyone else in same situation? I've rang up but they really couldn't give me much information.

    As for CSM, not all the workshop are away from the former Byam Shaw building. Printmaking studio is there! All I need to keep myself occupied.

    Ah, I didn't see your post!

    When did you get the rejection? I haven't had anything yet....

    Ah, hopefully I'll hear something soon then. Nobody got an interview/offer from them who was in this position then?
    They emailed me a sort of reminder thing saying 'as you know we're currently considering your application for an alternate course...' Sort of thing and just said I'd hear through UCAS. But no news as of yet.

    Also, does anyone have much of a comparison to make about Kingston and Oxford Brookes for BA Fine Art?

    Oh I got another reminder email too! I'm confused as to why it's taking them so long to respond with news of an alternative offer/rejection though - you would think they would have decided by now...

    I've only applied to catered halls, and put my 'most important factor' as proximity to ucl (although all the ones ive applied for are in a ten minute walking radius hahah)

    i have a pal at UCL who says that unless you put your most important factor as being having a single room you are almost guaranteed a shared. No bad thing but if you want a single then it has to be the most important factor to actually get one! That said I do sort of prefer being close to UCL the houses are nicer round their too. Perhaps it'll be the only chance you'll get of living in the Fitzrovia area ever....

    They have way more single rooms than shared though, so that doesn't make sense. Somebody has to get the singles. And for each hall, I've specified single rooms with shared bathroom, and specified that I won't take a shared room if there aren't any singles left in UCL-run halls. I would be very surprised if I get a shared room like you say.

    Have you actually done the application yet?
