    I'm applying too! Just wondering if you're going for hard or digital portfolio, I haven't sent mine yet!
    Also, how many people are applying from a foundation A & D course, rather than A Levels? I'm on a foundation

    I don't think you should worry about not hearing about interviews yet, I rang up and they said they'd be interviewing right up to the end of April

    Only last week! they said they hadn't emailed everyone yet, my tutor rang them for clarification and they asked for my name and then emailed me the next day. The deadline is the 15th of March.

    I hope they email me soon! Do they tell you when to send your work upto them or do we just send it? Do any of you know how competitive newcastle is to get into for fine art?

    Hey, I've applied to! I'm in the process of setting up the digital portfolio for them. (from reading other questions below) I'm currently doing foundation and I've applied to Northumbria and I'm pretty much going to go to N'bria, I don't know anything about Newcastle, they seem to keep themselves to themselves... But I know people who go to Newcastle, and it seems fine. My artwork is photography,media and performance, not into drawing or painting.

    Ahh nice! I've got offers from Manchester and De Montfort, waiting on Brighton still and I've got a Goldsmiths interview soon (scary). Yeah it is amazing, I completely fell in love with the course, uni and city!

    I sent my portfolio this morning on a CD, I kept checking it over and over again until my mum took it off me and insisted on driving me to the post office so I couldn't keep agonising over it. Do you know of anyone who's had interviews yet? My email said they'd be interviewing February - April.

    I'm sending mine as a digital copy, Newcastles my firs choice too and I also applied for Man met! Did you get an offer from them? They gave me a silly low offer so I think I'll have man met as my backup. I havnt heard of anyone getting interviews yet. I'm gonna send my memory stick at some point fairly soon.

    Yeah, unconditional for Man Met! I'm not sure what my second choice is, it's Newcastle then "the rest" haha.

    Mine has gone now, I'm really scared that I've not done what they want. Did they give anyone a date that they'd get back to them by? Some kind of timescale to keep in mind?
