Hey electramoon :hello:

I'm guessing you'll be moving away from home then if you come to study with us? Did you check out the accommodation at the Open Day? Which did you prefer?
If you're new to Birmingham you can find out more about student life here on our website, but do let us know if you have any questions about it as well!

In terms of the portfolio review, there's no need to be nervous, it's nothing too scary, you'll be fine! If you're worried about how to put your portfolio together, just head to the 'How to apply' tab on your course page here for some portfolio guidance

Good luck!
Lydia

I checked out Jennens Court and University Locks and preferred the latter. I found it more spacious and overall nicer although it's more expensive

Yeah University Locks is newer so slightly more per week. It's also really popular, so if that's your first choice make sure you apply for it as soon as you can one once it opens in March! :crossedf: Keep your eye on this page for when it does.

Hey bethlewx,

Sorry you've not heard back yet, our admissions team will be processing your application but if you'd like to contact them to confirm you can drop them an email with your full name, UCAS ID and course applied for at [email protected] and somebody should get back to you.

Thanks!
Lydia

How long does it usually take for BCU to respond to an application? I applied over a month ago and this is the only university I am waiting on a response from.
Many thanks

I'm waiting on a response too. From what I can tell, everyone is. Maybe they just haven't gotten round to it yet
