    I thought I would start a thread for those who are applying to Scottish Universities inorder to get quicker responses from those who where applying to the same universities.

    I have applied to all the 4 main art/architecture schools. So far I have been offered a conditional at RGU, which is really exciting!

    I also have the first year reading lists from RGU and the Glasgow School of art, if any one wants to swot up for there interviews.

    Robert Gordons:

    1. The following are recommended reading for the first year design studio.
