    I'm really excited to study under Feng. I know there's been some criticism in this thread, but I really have to see it for myself. When will you be moving over Masiluleke? Or are you already there?

    Good job you two for making it in Hope you guys have a good year. What I hear from other graduates (I haven't attended yet) is the Sofia Hostel is good and is a good distance from the school. Also could you guys post your portfolios that you sent to FZD?

    Sure! Mine's up at artbrog.tumblr.com

    My main concern with the housing is that I've heard they recently got a new location, so I'm a little confused as to where their current address is.

    Your art looks nice !
    Did you just graduate from another art school or college or is FZD your first art school?

    There's Pearl Hill Student Hostel, a little closer to their new location at the Amoy Street. I'm still looking for a closer one though.

    Thanks!! I've only studied independently so far, so FZD will be my first stab at art school. Hopefully I didn't miss out on too much of my fundamentals :p

    The place looks good. Where are you coming in from? It might be a good idea to share a room there.

    Is it indeed a new location for classrooms? I thought it was just a new building for administrative offices.

    I also was just accepted for the June intake. Damn excited (and a little scared ).

    If anyone else is interested in finding a place to stay together to save on them expenses, I'd be very interested.

    I sent most of it to FZD, left a few of the super weak ones out

    It looks like their new facilities are at 83 Amoy.

    Nah, it's not dying. Some of us are just working on our applications and portfolios for the October intake, and the June intake for this year is coming up in a week. People are probably super busy at the moment and will have more to share once the semester begins.

    Other than ct2ulao and Anirudh2012, am I the only other one who plans on attending this October?

    I am in June take, arrived Singapore around 10 days ago, just got my student visa yesterday, and also I went to the graduation show last Fri, a lot of people there, and a lot of great ideas and works, but also I've noticed that those works are from only 10-11 students(I remember there are 20+ students per class), therefore the class must be very intense, not everyone hang on to the last second....

    I noticed that as well.

    One thing to remember is that it isn't just about making it through an intensive year of training in the school, but also about being able to get to a certain level of professionalism that is very much required to be successful in the industry.

    The odds of making it into the industry are also much worse than students who don't complete their schooling.

    Everything ct2ulao just said is absolutely true. I'd like to add three things to that, though.

    First, based on what has been written before, it would seem that some of the people weren't really busting their balls to do hard work and were instead either slacking or tracing. I'd imagine those people would get weeded out when things get tougher.

    Second, according to the site, it would seem like the attendance requirements for international students are much higher than for Singaporean students (I think it's 90% versus 75% or something like that). If people slept in too much missed classes, I'd imagine they might be booted out of the program.

    And third? BRING IT. This only makes me more excited to go to FZD. http://files.sharenator.com/Challeng...156975-580.jpg

    I'm in the June intake. The course hasn't started yet, but if you have questions I'd be glad to answer what I can.

    Good luck to you sir, hope you make it to Singapore.

    I look forward to studying with you Alan. I also noticed what you noticed at the graduation show. It makes the course seem very intimidating.

    My class started with 16 people, 10 internationals, 6 locals. Poster 5u51n1 from the earlier pages of this thread was my classmate.

    4 internationals dropped out by end of term 2, and the last guy, a local, dropped out a couple of weeks before graduation show, and so owes the government $20k (he's fucked)

    Which is why we end up having only 11 gradboards up during the graduation show.

    Subsequent batches after mine only started to get bigger, like 20+ students per class.

    If you June 2012 batch have any further queries I'll be willing to answer them in real, in school, since I'm always visiting and have built up a pretty good rapport with your current term 3s.

    I just got accepted into the october batch!

    Everyone else that is planning on enrolling to fzd... make sure you try to submit everything as early as possible. There's so much paperwork to fill up and a months worth of waiting time just to be approved for a student pass. International students should at least submit their enrollment and portfolio 2-3 months in advance so that when you get to Singapore, you are ready for the orientation.

    I thought those who traced or kind of traced soared to new heights?

    I heard that's one of the ways to climb! In Uniquely Singapore

    i don't believe there's an age limit. i'm pretty sure we have a 30+ guy in the june 2012 class and he's currently kicking everybody else's ass.

    Heya, just wanted to apologize to anyone who has sent me a PM about housing/being potential roommates! I got the e-mail notification but CA.org is now going through some weird phase that makes my Avast antivirus cry whenever I try to access my control panel here or check my PMs. Sometimes it just whines and other times it blocks the connection. I have no idea if the ones I've sent out have actually gone through (so if you received multiple PMs from me, it's because the connection kept resetting as I tried to send each time) and the more recent ones I can't access at all. Please shoot me an e-mail at katmachiavelli@gmail.com if you've written to me about housing for the October intake

    Actually I'm looking for a roommate too. The price of living near the school is quite high, and I'm not exactly wanting to live in a hostel for a year. So if anyone is looking for a roommate to room with and find a good and clean place message me. hopefully we can find a place that isn't too expensive! =D

    Yup, you're one of the guys who wrote to me about getting a place. I couldn't get to your e-mail because every time I check my PMs now my antivirus blocks CA.org :/ but I'll shoot you an e-mail soon!
