    You're joking right? You're going to have a great time...art students always do

    I would have loved to have been good enough at art to spend 3 yrs developing it (instead of spending 3/4 yrs learning about stuff you get to spend 3 yrs learning about yourself and learning to express yourself even better). Plus the whole way fine art degrees are set up you're bound to make some really good friends who share studio space with you.

    I suppose being scared and dreading it are two different things. Are you just scared but still excited? Of course it's unknown and I'm sure most people who have doubts are reassured once they arrive. I was scared after I got my results and every day I would give a commentary on how many days until impending doom! I love it, look forward to enjoying the summer vac and put uni out of your mind

    Good! I spent too much time over summer vac worrying and reading my reading list. Have fun and enjoy being pampered and still being a "child" (in the sense that everything is beign done for you!) for the last time.

    Saw it in the teachers thread in the careers sub-forum....and my mind is throwing up something about textiles too :confused: my best pre-uni friend was an artist through and through and we had some of the most amazing times (going through the McDonalds drive through in a full size cardboard cut-out of a car springs to mind )

    I spent 4 yrs at uni...and to be honest there were some parts I didn't like, but it took a while for me to realise that that wasn't because of the uni but because of who I am...the best thing I learnt from uni was to do what I need to do to stay happy and sane before anything else - to make myself my highest priority.

    Even the times at uni when I felt miserable and unhappy helped me enormously it's a very special experience that gives you the time and space to grow into who you really are.

    We had offer holders (potential students for next year) come and visit and it was so weird to see how immature they were (not in a mean way!) You grow up so much at uni and become the wise person you never thought you would be. honestly!

    students are most definately NOT adults...they're just kids without parents (and they drive me mad at times - theres nothing like an 18 yr old for believing that the world revolves around them....but then that's what it's all about so I wont begrudge them a little self centredness ....even when they wonder out into the road in front of my car without looking)

    What are you scared of? If it's the course and level of work...you'll soon get used to it, you won't get lumbered with shed loads of work in your 1st term. The university understand that it's all new and so give you time to settle in to a new kind of life. And if it's living away from home...sure it's a bit scary but you're in the same boat as everyone, you'll make 100's of new friends and have such a laugh - make sure you get involved with things and go on socials. Plus, in the hugely unlikely event that it's really bad and you can't stand it you're in control and you can leave, try it again when you're ready. You'll have a fab time, don't be scared, anxious is ok as you don't know what to expect, but it's so exciting really!!!! Good luck with the results...

    Ha ha thats true. I'm just trying to postpone getting a job, and get a good degree and have a fantastic time I'm studying abroad next year and that will make me super nervous but will be entirely worth it at the same time

    There will be a huge change. You just dont realise/appreciate it when you're at home!

    I know I've grown up a LOT since I've been here and I don't think the world revolves around me!
