Hi! Thought I'd bump this thread rather than making a new one. I'm 27 and I've applied to do this course too, so I've got a few questions.

Firstly, does anyone have something of a timeline for the admissions process? The application deadline was 5th March, so have been wondering when I should expect to hear from them.

Secondly, any idea roughly how many people tend to apply for this course? I saw there's only 50 places so was wondering how much competition there usually is.

Lastly, is it possible to get a confirmed place early, or is it quite a long drawn out process where I wont know if I've got a place til the summertime?

Thanks x

Hey,
I've also applied for this course and just received my offer last week. I was just wondering if you were able to get a place on the course? If so did you get a response after you accepted the offer? I'm just a little concerned as I didn't get any confirmation that they have received my response.

Hiya, I’ve been accepted to the E&F course for 2021 too and after i used the google form to accept my place I didn’t receive a confirmation email but have since talked to leaders of the course (answering my questions about accom etc.) and have applied to uni halls using the student number they gave me. So I would say dw about not receiving a confirmation email

Hi,

Congrats on getting a place. Do you know which pathway you're going to do?

I've been offered a place too. I've accepted it and haven't heard back from them yet, but I wouldn't worry about it just yet, I'm sure it's all fine

Hi Jasmine thank you for the reply! That's reassured me , are you apply to university halls? I'm debating renting privately as I assume that would be cheaper but I'm not sure yet.

And congrats on the offer!

Hi, congrats to you too! I've going to do the arts and humanities pathway, have you decided which one you're going to do? Also will you be applying for accommodation via the university or privately? I'm already stressed out by how expensive rent in Bristol is ahhh.

I’m 19 (took a gap year) so I’m going into halls my first year to get the proper uni experience and try and make some friends. But it is. so. expensive. Renting privately is definitely cheaper, I plan to rent a house second year
