Hi, I applied to 5 universities (duh) and got offers and interviews from three of them but two (ARTS UNIVERSITY BOURNEMOUTH and WESTMINSTER) still haven't said anything. They've just sent my applicant number and that's it. Should I be worried ? My teacher told me that if they still haven't said anything in a week, I should forget about them
What do you people think ?
Thanks

Universities have a certain date until which they must give you a reply. Theres still a while till this date and both universities are most likely still reviewing or haven’t got round to your application so there is no reason to be stressed.

Until a university says your application is unsuccessful, theres no reason for you to just forget about it since there is still a chance. Don’t be disheartened and keep your hopes up that you get an offer!

Hope this helps and also good luck for your interviews

Hey congrats on getting offers from all of your other unis! I’ve also applied to Bournemouth and just got an email today to attend an interview. So I’m sure you’ll receive a response soon, don’t worry☺️

I hope you don’t mind me asking, which other unis have you applied to, and have you got any idea on which you’ll firm already?

I hope so! It's been a while and I know the uni is has a great reputation and stuff but I feel like it's been quite a while... When did you send your application?

I have applied to AUB, Westminster, University for the Creative Arts, Portsmouth and Leeds Beckett (I don't like it anymore though). I applied for a film production course.
How about you? Where did you apply and for what course?

I sent my application a few days before the UCAS deadline😅 so I’m sure you’ll definitely hear from them soon, don’t worry!
I applied to Sheffield, Edinburgh, UAL and UCL. All for architecture, I’ve got an offer from Sheffield but haven’t heard back from the others just yet.😬😬
Do you have to do any interviews as well? This whole process is just so painstakingly long and architecture applicants have to do interviews for each uni that asks us to come in for one, which makes it so much better🙂😭

I've only had one interview so far. It was from UCA. I got a conditional offer from Portsmouth without any interview or submission of my portfolio (kinda weird that they don't even want to meet me or see my work, right?) and I have to submit my portfolio and attend an interview at Leeds but I don't think I want to go tbh
You're right: the wait is too freaking long. It makes you even more nervous!!!

That was really bad advice from your teacher - unis have until 31st March to make people offers and they make lots of offers in Feb and March

Yeah, that's what I thought !! Why would she tell me to give up when it's only been a month ?! She made me think that they didn't want me and stuff...

Thanks for reassuring me

Hi there

I'm sorry the admissions process is slow at Westminster. We have hundreds of applications for our Film BA degree. If you applied before 15 Jan deadline you should be hearing very soon. Selected applicants will have received a questionnaire to complete and send back. Then selected applicants will receive an interview in person at the university. This is the stage when they also show their portfolio. Have you received your questionnaire yet?

Thanks

Hey guys, I have an interview with AUB next month and am quite unsure on what to put in my portfolio. I’m aware that they want a variety of medias and pieces to show the range of my abilities. But I’m still quite unsure, does anyone have any examples of accepted portfolios or tips they could share?
I looked at their website and they also said that we could send a portfolio informally by email for some feedback, and that this doesn’t affect our admission process in any way...but I’m still kinda wary of that. Should I do that, or work on my portfolio independently?🤔🤔

Art unis/colleges always start interviews /selection around now. Your teacher is talking rubbish I am afraid. Would also be true if you had not heard back from a normal uni for an academic subject.

Put your most recent work and work you will be happy to talk about into your portfolio. Daughter mounted pieces on A2 card and took photos of 3d pieces. I am sure informal portfolio offer is fine. They will just give you valuable feedback.

What course are you applying for ? For most of the unis I applied to for graphic design they listed examples of things you could include and how many pieces they want you to include
