    Has anyone heard anything back from either Edinburgh University, Strathclyde or the Glasgow School of Art? Does anyone know what the interviews are like? And does anyone know the acceptance rate for these universities?

    I applied to GSA and Edinburgh as well as RGU on 12 Jan and have heard nothing back whatsoever so far, apart from requests for portfolio from GSA and for fee status assessment forms (I am not a citizen) from Edinburgh and RGU.

    Best of luck.

    P.S. You can see admissions stats by course on Which? Uni.

    Has anyone received offers from RGU, Glasgow School of Art of Uni of Edinburgh?

    This waiting is beginning to impact on my mental health. If I don't get in I have no idea what I will do next year...

    Private fast-track A levels? I don't have any A levels as I'm from another country but I have done a BTEC since I've arrived in the country (art at A level was not an option at my local college).

    So worried!! If I were a nail-biter I would be gnawing them to the bone!

    Thanks very much the interview for GSoA is quite informal so don't sweat it; I applied to UCAS a day before the deadline so I don't think that's true what you've heard. I'm friends with a girl who sent hers in November and has only heard back from RGU, so I'm guessing it's random?

    I heard back from GSA, the interview was the friendliest I went to, as long as you can talk about your work then don't worry about it. They are really kind and they got back to me within a week.

    I had a tour and presentation of the architecture school. and they offered me a place. Find out about the city and really just know the school and your own work as much as you can and you will be fine.

    I would not recommend Strathclyde uni especially the architecture course to anyone. If you are international student this faculty is worst. when you are applying the staff pretend to be very caring and answers emails quickly and efficiently, from the time you got it in the whole attitude change. They barely care. It is very hard to communicate with them and the way they mark assignments are very weird, you don't have the right to say anything The library is **** and they lack resources. I know people studying at GSA and i think it much better. Definitely not Strathclyde.
