    thanks for your answer...I did this now, withdrawing from the other 2 unis that I hadn't had an answer from yet. (on top of it they -RGU and DJCAD - were really complicated in organisation...sending me multiple emails from various different addresses to ask for my portfolio...). the only other question that remains for me now is: as GSA is an unconditional offer for me, what do I reply? on UCAS they let me choose between 'firm' and 'insurance', but if I understood correctly it's firm anyway, no? and also: I am still waiting for an answer from a university in the netherlands...can I anyway firm GSA even if in the end I decide for the school in the Netherlands (not likely but I have to ask this...)...or is 'firming' an offer also connected with for instance a commitment to pay the coursefees? (hope my question makes sense )



    hello peter!!! nice meeting you here and having a 3rd person in the FAP team ...congratulations on your different offers! as I haven't been in Glasgow or to the school yet, I don't have many very convincing details to share with you, sorry...the only thing worth considering for me would be that coming to Europe would maybe be an extra challenge that could have an interesting effect on your artistic development...(if I understood correctly you are American, no?)...then again, I don't know anything about your life, so maybe that's a very vast guess...
    but for me personally I feel this way...you could say that the fact of 'keeping moving' boosts my creativity



    and hello lilly! (if that's your name) happy to meet another german-speaker I am from Austria (but living in France) and I guess I will also look into flatsharing...I am not so attracted to halls...I did already do some research on the housing, if you want I could send you some of the links I found (maybe in PM?)



    Oh yes, that would be very nice, if you could sent me some links

    Just been checking on my ucas stuff and read the letter that came with my offer, and it says 'Congratulations; The Glasgow School of Art has asked us to tell you that it is offering you a place for Fine Art - Photography, W640; starting in October 2013at point of entry 1.' when the course starting date on Track says 01-Sept-2013...has anyone else noticed this? I'm pretty sure the course starts on September 1st but I'm a bit worried how they're different (probably for no reason at all, but still!)

    This is what mine says Congratulations; The Glasgow School of Art has asked us to tell you that it is offering you a place for Architecture, K100; starting in September 2013 at point of entry 1.

    Hope this helps in some way?? A quick phone call usually clarifies everything

    I'm the same as blackcurls, mine says:

    Congratulations; The Glasgow School of Art has asked us to tell you that it is offering you a place for Fine Art - Painting/Printmaking, W120; starting in September 2013 at point of entry 1.

    Maybe refresh the letter or phone UCAS? Pretty sure all the courses at GSA start on September 1st...

    I think yours is correct then! I hope there's no problem - I've been worried they made a mistake offering me a place instead of a rejection, and it's not helped by my conditions being BCC where as everyone else's are ABB. I'll probably email them on Tuesday since I've already firmed so I guess there's not too much rush...thank you for your help!

    Hmmm this is a bit strange! I never noticed it when I've read the letter before (and believe me that's been A LOT hahaha) and I'm one to notice little things like that! The list with all my offers on it says 01-Sep-2013 and then there's this when I go to the course details...(format isn't working oops)
    ...It's just on the decision letter where October is mentioned I will email them soon, and if I get no reply, give them a ring, just to check! Thanks for your help!

    Good to hear everything's well!

    Well at least we know now what the source of this problem is if somebody else has the same thing happening to them!

    So happy that this thread is here! I've also just sent a request for the Facebook group.

    Well done to everyone getting in!!

    I firmed my unconditional offer for Fashion Design. I'm 17 (18 in July) and from Ayrshire!

    So I have a question; has anyone thought about potentially getting involved with Glasgow Uni societies and groups? A few people have told me that although GSA students can join the uni's societies and groups - many don't. I mean we've got a long time to think about it; so i'm really just being curious!

    I really want to sign up to the university societies and in particular, sport clubs. I think it will be a good way to keep you mixed with other students who are not only studying art!

    I definitely agree! I'm really interested in the sports groups aswell.
    I think it's good to meet people and get a combination experience of learning at art school but not missing out on 'uni' activities.

    Hey, congrats on your unconditional into fashion! I'll add you onto the list. (:
    I'm 17 as well but I'll be studying Painting.
    I actually didn't know GSA students were able to join Glasgow Uni's societies and groups, but now that you've said it, I'll definitely be looking into it.

    This is a full list of society's and groups: http://www.glasgowstudent.net/clubs/

    The triathalon club looks good!
    And there's also a really good poker society (although I don't know how to play poker...)

    Also here is a great article written by a GSA student last year:
    http://www.glasgowuniversitymagazine...-a-love-story/

    And very well done into getting into p+p!

    About the groups and societies, does anyone know if the sports facilities or even just the gym at Glasgow uni are open to us? Read on Which? that they no longer were, hopefully that's incorrect though! Thanks!
