    Still haven't heard back guys. I gave them a call a few weeks back and they said they got a larger amount than usual of applicants this year, so it's taking a little bit longer to sort through things. Kinda giving up hope now but we'll see what happens haha.

    Hi all! I'm not doing art, but I have confirmed my place at Kingston University to study Journalism. So if anyone is going there/considering there, feel free to message me! Would be nice to know some people before freshers week! Good luck to anyone still waiting to hear back, or do interviews! Also if anyone is curious - Kingston do have some art videos up on their Youtube channel. Be sure to check them out, I was bored and was just watching their other videos and it seems some of their art ones do talk about how to prepare for your interview, what they'll ask etc; This is a really good one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJm8FDqFhO0

    ((Posted this on the Foundation forum, but thought I might as well post it here as well, cause there's not many active Kingston threads!))

    Yeah I haven't heard back either! I know a few people who heard back a couple weeks ago all of them didn't get in

    Glad I'm not the only one who hasn't heard back

    Me too... maybe they have many applicants this year, but still it's almost a month
    At my interview they said they had over 1300 applicants... so im sure its taking a long time to get through them all

    i was interviewed on 13 february for fine art and it wasn't a group interview for me, 6 different interviews were done at once on different tables so it's a lil distracting because you can hear everyone else talking. i was interviewed by one lecturer and one student who were both friendly, they treated me as an individual and were very encouraging about my work, even suggested exhibitions for me to visit. i got an offer the following day which was very lucky because it can take ages, apparently there are 70-90 people in each year group on the fine art course so literally there's no reason to worry if they take awhile to get back to you, there are a lot of applicants but it's a huge course! they don't reject a lot of people due to lack of space i imagine most interviews (but not all) are probaby finished by now but just wanted to share my experience for future applicants, you'll all be fine and the lecturers are so friendly and enthusiastic! i took two sketchbooks, around 9 pages of photography and two time-based pieces which they watched on a laptop.
