Default Going to Bournemouth?

I just read through the Getting into the industry thread, and it made me check out Bournemouth, and I found this page with fees. Since I live in Denmark, I suppose I'd be under the EU (Home) category? And are the 1150 for the entire education?

The reason I wanna know is because here in Denmark, as far as I know, the only place to get an education in cg is TrueMAX in Copenhagen, and a 3 year BA there costs just below 200K DKK which would roughly be around 20K, which is alot (especially when we pay 40% in taxes)! I also think it would be really cool to go abroad to study, and Bournemouth sounds like a really cool place by what I've heard from you guys who have attended it

Hope anyone can clarify these things for my peace of mind

yes, it will be 1150 per year as you will be counted as an EU student. Bear in mind you will have living costs as well.

Bournemouth is a great place to study and to live. I was there last year on the MSc and had a great time. they really help you get into the industry big time!

But they get around 6000 applicants a year so you'd better be a> good and b> early

Yeah but 1150/year is still a lot cheaper than ~20K total (which doesn't include living costs either), unless the education at BU is longer of cource

I just finished high school and 10 months of military service, so I figure I'd spend the next year or so doing some HML (Hard Manual Labor ) for some ca$h while praticing Maya and stuff...

EDIT: BTW, do you know how many students they accept?

about 40 I think maybe less. Competition is pretty fierce for the BA course. but dont worry if you dont get in do another course and then do the masters it's much easier to get on those as they accept about 80 students and have less applicants.

Whoa only 40 out of 6000 applicants??? Yeah I can imagine it's pretty fierce! Guess I'd better have a look around and see what else they've got
