    I'm sure it's just the main reception at the Merchiston campus, that's where we went on the open day, surely it'll be sign posted

    It was soooo busy on the open day! I could barely get into the room but it was the only journalism talk on during the day so I wasn't really surprised

    Nothing comes to mind...they really just outlined the structure of the course and showed us around the department which was very impressive and high tech😂 They didn't mention anything about the written exercise after applying however, but I suppose that was maybe so they could check how well you were able to pull something together in a short period of time without prior knowledge of it. They did say that if you were to receive an interview then there would be no request to bring any portfolio pieces but apart from that they didn't really say much else

    Sounds good. I've heard much of it is based around independent study

    At the open day they highlighted that the course was highly credited etc etc. I'm really hoping they're interviewing the people they hope to accept, would make life a lot easier for us! Are any of your interviews on the 21st?

    Anybody got any hunches as to what might be asked at the interview. I'm thinking if they say something about current events it will be trump or brexit.

    There's really been nothing major other than trump or brexit, it does say be prepared to discuss what your submission was about at the interview

    They may ask something about a more obscure current event to try and see how people react. I was on the 21st but I had to change it as I already have an interview that day. At least you will all be able to tell me what sort of structure the interview has! 😂😂

    Yeah I was offered to go on that day as well as Wednesday so I'm not sure if it's maybe just the 3 days they are doing them

    It possibly could be the three days they are interviewing and then sorting out the people who they are accepting

    It's a shame for her but it does give me more confidence that the people who are invited to interview have a big chance of getting an offer
