Very well worth going - lots of useful info about the structure of the course and the demands to be placed on the students, timetables, tutorials and so on.
Also pointers on what is needed for the application process which sounds pretty daunting in itself.
Now have to try and write 2000 words on a suitable Design History subject - its a good test of whether I am committed and capable - which is probably why they ask for it.
Maybe something on Leica might work.
V slow going on the reading but good news is only expected to have read 3 or 4 by start of course so sort of ahead of the game (if there is to be one).
