    I have one more year to go at school before i can go to university, but i was wondering how those who have applied to their course, and have been accetped,
    how did you find out which halls of residence you were staying at. Did you pick yourself or were you told where??

    Are these halls of residence mixed-sex or what, too!?!?


    Oh and is it hard to get into?, I was looking at Foundation Degree Fashion Styling and Photography, and so this summer I got work epxerience with a professional photgrapher and am looking into getting some more with a millinery designer!!
    Will this help?!?

    Firstly, I would advise reading the housing section on the university website:

    http://www.arts.ac.uk/housing/

    And in particular the FAQ:

    http://www.arts.ac.uk/housing/1672.htm

    You can also read the housing booklet for this year:

    http://www.arts.ac.uk/docs/combined_pdf.pdf

    Basically, the university has 12 halls of residence, all situated across London, which all vary in standard and price. You can state a preference on which hall(s) you would like to stay at, which the university may try to fulfill, but often than not, you will probably get allocated elsewhere. The university places priority on those living further away from London, those with a mental or physical condition, and those under eighteen. The popular halls are very competitive, so it's crucial that you apply earlier to increase your chances. It's also worth noting that the university can't guarantee a room for all first year students, which is unfortunate.

    The competitiveness for places varies from college to college, and particularly from course to course. Nonetheless, most courses receive a fair volume of applicants, so having experience with a professional photographer, in addition to the millinery designer, will definitely help. :smile:

    I didn't answer this question... From my understanding, most, if not all are mixed-sex. They 'may' have a section of the hall for single-sex, but I somehow doubt it. When I stayed at Manna Ash, it seemed to be mixed-sex across the entire hall. It was for me, anyway. I can't answer this question definitively, but I'd imagine they definitely are mixed-sex.
