    hello everyone,

    I applied for The Summer School for Access 2013 but haven't heard anything since the initial confirmation that they received my application, has anyone been accepted onto the course for 2013? thank you.

    Hi there,

    Sorry I won't be much help to you but I'm in the same situation at the moment. The waiting just kills.
    I was thinking of phoning next week, see if that might speed things up... or something.
    I think, because they're still taking applications up to June, it might take a while to hear back.
    Anyway, I hope you hear from them soon.

    Oh that's horrible.
    I don't want to seem like I'm prying but are you from Scotland, because I'm sure I was to be charged for the course but that was wrong, so I called them to sort it out. Maybe that's what happened to you?
    I'm a bit of an idiot, I'm sure I've got my letter, but was confusing it with degree things. I need confirmation about accommodation. Letter says they'll phone me in May though.
    Aw, thank you.

    You poor thing, hope you're better now.
    Oh sorry. When I did my application, I was to get charged when i shouldn't but I phoned them and they've said they'd sort it. I hoped it would be something like that in your case. I'm sorry you won't be going the summer school.
    Are you going to do something else instead?

    I'm good now, thanks. I have some good news to share with you, the thing is I had made 2 applications one for Summer School and one for Anthropology just to be on the safe side, I was sad about not being able to make it into Summer School coz of RUK Fees but turned out I was worrying myself for nothing, I've just firmed Aberdeen like a minute ago, they gave Unconditional offer for Anthropology regardless! Im over the moon! so, will definitely see you there in Sept! cant wait! best of luck with Summer School

    Hey. I'm 21 and just sitting my Scottish Highers. Predicted A and two B's. I don't particularly want to sit another round of highers if I'm honest. I feel like I need to move on. Then my mate showed me this summer school and thought it looked like a good idea. Is there any chance I could gain access onto a degree at Aberdeen upon completion of the summer school if I haven't actually applied via UCAS to any unis this year?

    Was either that or a HNC at Aberdeen college and skip first year. I just don't know what to do. Wish I was allowed to do 4 higher this year.. would of been so much simpler for me

    Well you'll need to apply for degrees as soon as possible - I'm pretty sure you can apply without ucas, should be on the uni's website.
    The summer school prospectus will tell you what grades you need for most Aberdeen uni courses and will still be accepting applications just now (I'm not too sure about degree courses at this time, sorry.)

    Ugh, i know. I could've been in uni three years ago if highers would've worked out.
    Anyway, I can't help you decide, but for what it's worth, I think the summer school is a great idea. Phone them, and ask for some advice, they're really nice there.

    Oh good. Do you know what you'll do after summer school? In your last post you seemed concerned about getting access to a degree after ss.
    That was nice about your lecturer

    I wanted to do history and sociology joint degree but seems my plans aren't going to happen. At least not this year. Got an email from them today saying I would of had to have applied via UCAS in january to gain access. Too late now. :/ now excuse me while I go cry into a corner for the rest of the day. I don't think I can bare staying on at college for another year of higher. ;(

    Oh no, that really sucks.
    Could you maybe take a year out until you can apply again? That's what I did - not that I managed to make the best of it but hey.
    I'm sorry it didn't work out the way you wanted it to.

    I'll survive. I always do. :P I did have another plan but I'm still not sure about it. Was possibly thinking of doing a HNC in social sciences at Aberdeen college and gaining access to the uni through that + the 3 highers I already have (or will have come august). But then I'm not sure if that would effect my funding when I go on to uni.. Whether they would only fund me for 3 years

    That's a good idea. And your funding would be ok in that case: saas will fund you if you've done an HNC before a degree, they're going to fund me and I didn't complete my HNC.
    Good luck, I hope it works out for you.
