    Hi All
    Thought I would start a thread for 2017 applicants for Media Makeup courses. I know it's not for another year but it's good to start early. We could chat about where we are thinking of applying, what course(s) we are doing now, any advice for portfolios and interviews etc
    Speak soon
    Dream
    P.S I have also put this thread under 'everyday issuses' I didn't know which one was best, sorry. Hope that's ok.

    Hi
    Was just wondering how long it took you both to get replies from Southhampton, as I've applied for there, AUB, UAL and UCB. I've had a conditional from Birmingham and an interview from Bournemouth. I sent my portfolios last week, and just wondered how long it took for your replies.

    Hey! How funny we applied to the exact same universities. It took about 9 days until I heard back from Southampton I'd say? I heard online Universities usually take up to 10 but no longer than that, although I submitted my one for London the exact same day as Southampton as still haven't heard anything..

    No I didn't have an interview for Southampton and I assume it's just because they straight up gave me an unconditional, but I was under the impression that I was going to have one beforehand so you might do? But I haven't had any yet, hopefully when I hear back from Bournemouth and London I'll get some but i'm worried too!! I read on another forum how the interviews go for Bournemouth and they don't seem bad at all, apparently they're quite casual and they ask you questions about why you chose the course, what you want to do after and just look through your portfolio! Good luck in your interview!!! xx

    Southampton didn't ask me for an interview!
    And Bournemouth interviews can be nerve wracking as sometimes they are harsh towards you and grill you, asking you loads of questions about stuff and they expect a lot of you (I've been)

    Last year they asked me what the last book I read was, where I see myself in 10 years, and if I had to bring someone(famous) back from the dead to do their makeup who would it be and why xxx

    Hey!
    All sounds very exciting and nerve racking!
    I was just wondering how many images you are putting in your portfolios? also are you putting sketches in your portfolios?
    I am so nervous about the interviews, just worried about the sort of questions they will ask.
    Just curious what backgrounds are you all coming from eg. art, makeup, photography or a-levels.
    Is anyone a mature student?
    Dream x
