    Hello! I have a conditional offer for first year Graphic design and I've firmed it as well! I love the city so much and I can't wait to go (hopefully i'll get the grades...)

    Do any of you have an idea of where to apply for accommodation?
    also I think the year we are going for is 2013/14 and not 2012/13 ))

    ahaha
    It sure is confusing! I don't want to apply for accommodation now because it's so hard to decide! I don't want to feel like I wish I had applied to this place etc etc ~~

    but I guess I will just go for it! Everywhere would be similar anyway right

    Hello! I'm not 100% sure about how well connected ECA is either BUT when I was there for the applicant day I was shown around the studios and the graphic design studio is the most amazing place I've been! The director lady was saying that every students will have opportunities to do work experience during the 4 years (or 3) while they are there. As far as I understand, it is within the college. Eg the 4th year would be a director while first years will be junior designer etc (I'm not entirely sure how it works, but ECA is the only course in the UK that offers this)

    I hope this makes sense :>

    I think you can still apply for accommodation as long as it is your firm I think but you won't be officially offered or told what accom you'll be living in unless you have unconditional offer so the latest we could be told about accom is like late August! I have firmed Edinburgh and put Cumbria as insurance!
    After I firmed though, I got an email in Euclid saying that I have to send in the qualifications I have so far which should be in the clearance section (?) but it's empty I am so confused :<<
