She got a place on the 3 yr diploma at Italia Conti!!

Funding (DaDA) needs to be applied for and is by no means certain, so she might not go!!

But she got a place!!! I am so, so proud!!! can you tell?

omg that's excellent , Well done her ! smile

I can't believe she is old enough to go either hmm

I'm so proud!

I'm waiting to hear about the funding - apparently they score people at the initial interview and then when they hear from the government how much money they are getting this year the deal it out using those scores

So it could all be decided but we might not hear for ages yet

Has she done Brits yet ?

KatyMac Sat 18-Jan-14 20:14:39

They refused her on application form; they only take 10% of students (7) from outside London

LIZS Sat 18-Jan-14 20:17:07

sad what a shame, their loss

KatyMac Sat 18-Jan-14 20:18:11

Well Brit was BTEC level 3 & Italia Conti is Trinity Guildhall level 6, so......
