    Hello all,
    I have currently got offers from Kingston and UCA Epsom (still waiting on UAL Camberwell). I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experiences with these uni's as I am having a tough time trying to decide what to do.

    Much appreciated ^.^
    Hey I can't really help with Kingston or UCA, but I'm currently waiting for a reply from Camberwell too and I don't know whether I should pick Loughbrough or Camberwell.

    I personally chose camberwell because of location. In london you are a lot closer to galleries and the such.
    I can't really speak for Loughbrough though, but I have heard good things from them.

    I already live in London, so for me Camberwell isn't too far but I'm leaning more towards Loughborough at the moment.

    Hi Krissy, I had an interview on that day too, have you heard anything back?
    Once you sent your letter off accepting the place did you hear anything back from them?

    I've tried to apply for student accommodation but when I put my application number in and press 'next' it says that I'm not eligible to register.

    Have you heard from Loughborough about applying for accommodation?

    No I haven't, I tried to register last night and it said I wasn't eligible for some reason. I have a friend who goes to Loughbrough and he said it's too early to apply yet so after the Easter I'm just gunna call them to check.

    Hi Krissy1997

    If you have firmly accepted a conditional offer, I think you can start applying from June 1st but I'd check this with our Accommodation Centre, who you can contact at [email protected].

    You should receive some info on this via email soon, too.

    Hope this helps

    Will going to Manchester Met for foundation put me in a better place for getting into the London universities than if i go to De Montfort Uni for foundation simply because its a more well-known uni? I love everything about De Montfort but thing Manchester may be better in the long run. Any advice would be lovely!

    Ultimately whether you get in or not will be down to your work so go where you believe that you will produce the best work. Foundation tutors can help but it'll be who you are that decides whether or not you get into those universities, not your foundation. That said I did my foundation at MMU this year and I think that it is a great course and thoroughly recommend it, but go where you think is right for you. If you have any questions about the MMU foundation then let me know

    Thanks for your reply! I'm still deciding at the moment but this has helped to reassure me a bit.

    Hi, I genuinely don't think it would make any difference to go to DM! I am almost finished my foundation at Kingston. It's all about how much effort you put into the foundation and I don't think M would be amazingly better. I think you should go to where you like best and feel most able to excel! Good luck, foundation is amazing but a lot of fast paced work!

    Send them a private message so only you and they will see it. That's what I did with the group chat for my course.
