I heard from UCAS that I have a conditional place at Lincoln for Architecture on 16th December. I have not recieved a letter from Lincoln though confirming this.
I know no one would have been working over Christmas, but I was just wondering if anyone had recieved a letter from Lincoln and if so how long after they heard from UCAS.
Quite a few universities do not send you a letter once they have given you an offer. I think this is quite normal. You will probably receive more information from them if you decide to accept their offer.
I think there was a time difference of about 10-14 days between seeing an offer on the UCAS site, and getting a letter from the department. They were the first to accept me, and the last to send a letter.
Cheers. I'm just worried because I was certain, for the course, I would have to have an interview. If I get a letter from Lincoln then I can be certain that I wouldn't need one. At the moment I am still worried that I might have to go for an interview although UCAS have said I have a conditional offer.
It has been a long time that you have got an offer, but not letter stating an interview. I think that means you don't have one.
Why do architecture students get interviewed? It's not like medicine, law or anything like that.
They get interviewed because they like to see a portfolio of work. I thought that would especially be the case for me as i dont take any art subjects.
I see. I think you can still draw though, if yout don't have Art. Most architecture courses don't require Art though.
Oh yeah I know they dont require art, but I thought they still like to see if ur creative or not!!
I can finally relax i recieved my letter from Lincoln yesterday with no mention of needing an interview!!!
