    Hi guys,

    I got ABB at AS Level and I'm predicted this year to get AAA at A2. I was just wanting to know from any students at the Courtauld Institute or other universities such as UCL, what it's like to study History of Art at uni? And what's it like living in London?

    The thought of accommodation alone being £9,000 for my first year is quite scary

    Yes, but I'm applying next year after my Foundation Course in Art. Nah I wouldn't worry! I think it's more the person and ability over just your A-Level grades, it'd be unfair if they only accepted those over AAB when they ask for AAB, so I wouldn't worry. I was just curious as to what students at the Courtauld had got and their experience studying there.

    Hi,

    When I went to the Open Day last week we were shown around the Duchy accommodation, in which we got a letter setting out the different tariffs for the different rooms available. I'd say on average it's around £8,000 - £9,000 for a single room, bearing in mind this accommodation is in the centre of London, about 1/2 minute walk from Somerset House itself.

    Just out of curiosity, did the University mention it would be around £6,000? I know if I'm to study in London or anywhere in the South I'd get a loan for living costs alone, so that might explain a lower cost but I'm not entirely sure.
