Hi

I would like to apply for art related degrees but I'm finding the Route A / Route B situation complicated...

In October I'm planning on applying to the university that I feel I would get into most easily through route A and applying to the more competitive one (Falmouth) through route B in March, giving me more time to build a stronger portfolio.

I personally don't think I will get into Falmouth but its worth a try & I know that the university I'm applying to through 'route A' has very limited student accomodation... So I would have to apply for accom there as soon as I get my offer. Would deciding to make my route A university my insurance choice affect my chances of getting accomodation there?

Also, would I have to wait until I have offers from both institutions, which would be around May, to be able to apply for accomodation anywhere... ?

Thanks

I cannot speak with certainty for everyone, but I know with most Unis it is not a case of applying for your Accomodation as soon as you receive your offer. I am going to Loughborough in September, and they have only just sent out everyone's accomodation application packs. It is generally April-June time when you can apply, and only until August, once you have your results (if it is a conditional offer) when you find out if you have accomodation.

Thank you for replying Alex_Mann.

It's just that earlier I noticed in the uni prospectus of my route A choice, that 'most students who accept a firm offer before the end of march will be a offered a place in halls.'

Unfortuantley I won't know if I have got into Falmouth by then thus not being able to state it as my firm. I think I might have to think about just applying to my route A university and not Falmouth to be on the safe side.

I don't think living in private accommodation during the 1st year would be the same uni experience as opposed to living in halls...
