    I applied to camberwell for the art foundation just over a week ago now and haven't heard anything back ?
    the other uni's i have applied for to do the foundation have given me an interview date but UAL still hasn't even said anything.

    All i've heard is them saying they got my application and i need to add my personal statement and add a reference (which I have done) , I'm now worried I have applied wrong because not heard anything back.

    Is anyone else in this situation or is this likely that i'm not getting an interview at all ?

    Hi, I also applied for the foundation too, did you get an email asking for a portfolio review yet? They also said to check your spam/junk folder as a lot of times their emails go there and people don't see them.

    Oh, I had mine today... What's arts uni Bournemouth like? I looked at them for an undergraduate course, so I'll have a look at them sometime. I didn't apply for anywhere else outside of London as I don't want to have to pay for accommodation but I probably should have done just in case.

    Hi, it's actually not an interview its just a portfolio review. So you go in and register and then they hand you a form that people will mark your portfolio on. You then drop off your portfolio into a room, and you place the form on top of your work. Then you go into another room and have a presentation about the course for about an hour and whilst this is happening there will be people marking your work. you could be called out during the presentation if you have put diagnostic/specialist mode but they think that you are more suited to the opposite one that you have applied for. When it is over you go and collect your work and you're done! They told us that we would find out at the end of march. Hope that's helpful xx

    Hey, so you just leave it in the room that they tell you too. I honestly don't think I had much, mine was more photography based, so I had A2 sheets of white card with drawings and photos ets, 34 pages. As well as 1 photography sketchbook, and two smaller sketchbooks and that's it. Any more questions let me know
