    Hey! I have also applied to Bournemouth, Southampton, Birmingham and London College of Fashion! I have an interview at Southampton and have to submit an online portfolio for LCF. Bournemouth is my top choice by far, but I haven't heard anything back yet! Have you heard anything from any of your choices? x

    Hiii everyone sorry didn't see I had any replies, ive got an unconditional from Manchester and my interview for Southampton next week. I was declined from bournemouth without an interview which I was pretty annoyed about as I'm doing a media makeup course now which ive got distinction* in and alot of work experience. It looks like they're looking for art more than actual makeup experience

    Hi everyone, I applied to Bournemouth, Southampton, Salford and London. I got accepted for Southampton and rejected from Bournemouth. Got an interview for Salford this week but don't think i'm gonna go to it as the course isn't rly what i want to do and it's in a college rather than a university, just waiting to hear back from London now. x

    Congratulations on Southampton and sorry to hear about Bournemouth. I still haven't heard from them! I have an interview tomorrow in Yorkshire but that's also just a foundation degree at a college. I got declined from Bradford so waiting to hear back from Bournemouth, London and Manchester :-) fingers crossed x

    Hi Harrfa,

    I am currently studying at BU and every application is different. Don't worry to much if you haven't got a response back yet! Each application usually takes around 6-8 weeks however, the offices where shut for a couple weeks around Christmas so this could also cause slight delay.

    BU should get back to you soon, so fingers crossed!!

    Good luck with your application,

    Hi Campbell,

    I saw your post that you got declined from BU. Really sorry to hear this!!

    I am sure you will enjoy University no matter where you go and if you have any questions about University in general im happy to answer.

    Ah thanks Gemma. My application was submitted exactly 4 weeks yesterday, I guess I am just very impatient!

    What's it like studying at BU? What's the accommodation and nightlife like? I really hope I get in. :-)

    Is it the Arts University or Bournemouth University you have applied to? Because I currently study at BU (Which is next door to AUB) so the accommodation may be different depending on which on you are studying at!

    The nightlife for Bournemouth is great though. There are always student nights going on giving you plenty of options! Some of the big clubs that I would recommend include Halo, Cameo, The Fire-station, Yates, Bar-Me and many more! There also lots of pubs around and smaller bars that are great for a more casual drink.

    Good luck with your application!

    I'm Nikki and I applied to do the BA in make up at Southampton and Bournemouth

    I'm an absolute nervous wreck. I've been given an interview date for Southampton on the 26th March.
    I have a few questions.

    Do you HAVE to send a digital portfolio?
    What have you included?
    Sketch books?
    Photo shoot quality make up on yourself is acceptable?
    Are the 15 pieces just photos of your make up or life drawing pieces you've done?

    I haven't heard back from Bournemouth yet.


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
