What Applicants Say About Their Interviews at CSAD

‘You may recall that I dropped you an email, following our inspirational visit to Cardiff Met with our daughter back in January.  We have since driven up & down the country, for interviews at several other universities.
There really was no comparison to what Cardiff Met. has to offer – the course, staff team & working environment are all in a different league to anywhere else.  She really looking forward to joining the course in September.’

‘I wanted to thank-you for such an enjoyable interview process. I was grateful for the informal, yet very informative morning. It was nice to be able to spend the whole morning on the campus, to see the facilities again and meet others that were apply for the same course.
I really enjoyed the group interview as it gave me a chance to see others portfolios and interact with others and explore their work. In return it was nice to get feedback on my own portfolio and explain the reasoning and motives behind the selected pieces.
What I was most grateful for was you taking the time to respond to me directly the same day with your offer, it meant a lot that I wasn’t waiting a long time for the official offer to come through, which was a great stress relief.
Thank you again for an enjoyable experience and the offer to study textiles with you in September.’

‘Thank-you very much for your email, I had a lovely time yesterday and I appreciate the fantastic offer – I accept the offer and will formally accept it via UCAS when the UCAS online system allows me to do so. I am looking forward to studying at Cardiff.’

‘Thank you! I am absolutely thrilled!
I’d also like to say how much I enjoyed yesterday. I went in dreading the interview, but the second I walked through the door I met such patient and helpful people, I was instantly put at ease. I’m very thankful for such a collaborative interview, it really gave me the chance to appreciate other’s work and get a feel for the space.’

Thank you so much for the offer! I am very happy, excited and proud of myself! Thank you for yesterday and letting me do the interview in Welsh, it really boosted my confidence and made me a lot more comfortable.
Diolch yn fawr!”

‘Firstly, thank you for a great day and the opportunity to spend time with you and everyone else. CSAD is brilliant and has always been my first choice. So, I am over the moon to get an offer and greatly accept.’

‘We are all so happy, everything about the Llandaf campus and the art facilities are amazing’

‘Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her visit, & the relaxed interview process. We were all delighted that she was given an offer to study Product Design. She does have another couple of interview offers to attend, but Cardiff Met (& not forgetting Cardiff itself) is going to take some beating.’

I just wanted to write straight away to thank you for your amazing offer. I am absolutely thrilled as Cardiff Met was my top choice. I now can’t wait to start and will of course be formally accepting the offer via UCAS.

‘Can hardly wait to start. Thanks so much’

‘I’m completely sold on the university and your course. The interview, which is focused on us, is thrilling! I’m dedicated to improving and learning and eager to start!!!’

‘Thank you very much. It was great meeting you all and I can’t wait to get started in September.’

Thank you so so much. I am over the moon and am so excited. The course looks and sounds amazing and I can’t wait. I will continue to develop my observational drawing skills and will re-visit the house of illustration.
Once again, thank you so much. Today was really helpful and I am so happy.’

I really enjoyed the whole interview experience. I’d never done a group interview before, so was a bit nervous, but I think being in a group with other people in the same position as me made it a lot easier!
I loved getting to look at other people’s work, and I think it made the interview a lot more relaxed than if it was just one on one.
Thank you!’

‘I am pleased to receive your email and offer and I will discuss the same with my parents and teacher as soon as possible. Just want to say what an amazing experience it was today and am really excited about what I have seen today and the course content and lecturers I have met. Please be reassured that I will continue to work hard at current subjects in college to achieve my full potential and obtain the best results I can.’

‘My wife & I would like to say a big thank you for the tour you gave us on Friday of the School of Art & Design. From my architect’s perspective, it really is an exceptional & inspirational environment.’
