I've got an interview there soon for photography, I'm crapping myself!
Has anyone else here been for an interview there for anything? Are they nice, or horrible and criticy in a bad way? I know I probably won't get the same people interviewing me for photography than people doing different courses there, but I'm just wondering if the staff there are nice in general, not arsey like what I've heard about Manchester Met & CSM.
What kind of stuff do they ask you?
i had an interview at leeds coolege of art, theyve now given me an unconditional. the place is awsome and the interviewer was soo nice its really relaxed its more like a chat.they ask you about your work and hobbies etc.just be really enthusiastic and they love it.hope that helps.
I got an unconditional offer! I think I'm going to go there because I got into Sheffield too but don't really want to go there and I've still not heard back off Manchester, so I really can't be bothered to go there now and I've heard from a friend of a friend that the photography department there isnt that great.
Leeds seemed pretty ace, it's not as pretty as the centre of Manchester but there seemed to be loads of students everywhere from the art college and the other 2 Leeds unis, so seems like a pretty student friendly place.
I'm doing photography and thats based in the old city building which has a nice Yates pub' on the corner of it haha.
I've 2 friends up there already who are on their foundation course up their at the college and they are loving it and they say Leeds nightlife is really good.
Not sure if there is a student Union for the art college, there probably is for Leeds Met & Leeds Uni though.
No I'm not going on an orientation day, I had a good look round when I went to my interview . Not sure about who has the better rep though, MMU or LCAD, seeing as LCAD is a dedicated art and design college though, I'd say them?
ive seen mmu cos i got in last year, wasnt too impressed it was my sixth choice.ld personally say lcad was better plus it has awsome past students such as henry moore, marcus harvey, damien hirst, barbara hepworth etc.so i think they must be doing something right.plus its been around since 1842.
My Brother had an interview for Ba Graphic Design and he said the people were nice and went through his work with him outlining what thye liked ect.
Anyway he got a Conditional offer, so if you see a lad with a northern accent with an afro thats my brother.
I went to the orientation day, and whilst the college itself was impressive, nice machinery etc, the fashion course was awful. I don't know what the other courses are like, but the standard of work for fashion was truly poor, I could not believe it was degree level stuff. For some reason, they didn't use sketchbooks, just paper. I'm going to MMU for an interview soon, but if I don't get in there I think I will prob take a gap year and re-apply next year.
lol, so long as uve got the facilities, the course and ur own wrk will be up to u. dont judge by wat other people are able to do.if uve got tallent then all will be gud.
