  1. I've applied to go out on July 19th, 3 days after my graduation woop!
    They are in their headoffice and even better, there is a hotel directly opposite it for £110 for a room. I think I'm going with my dad make a couple of days of it.

    Thats awesome..Are you the only one on here thats going?

    I know they'll obviously be other people going, but I havent heard anyone else mention it on here..

    Im not sure whether im guna do the July or October yet..So hopefully they'll let me go..

    Was in two minds whether to do this or the cult rep, but I guess I can do the cult rep anytime..
  3. As far as I know I am the only UK person at the interviews on here. You should definetly go for it!

    Thats so wierd..As i've applied for the grad program as well, but they havent emailed me..

    Did they just send it to you, or did they send it to a few people?

    Cheers for your help :)
  7. erm not sure really but it looks like a generic email. Might be worth e-mailing ilse about it saying you are interested in it, either her or hannah as she should get back to you tonight about it. They may have you down for october rather than july.
    Are you on facebook john?

    Yeah, they have I think..Is that interview at a later date?

    Coz im thinking I want to do July now..

    Look for John Young..Uni Huddersfield network..
  9. from what i could get from hannah and ilse it wasn't til spring/early summer. If you e-mail hannah then she can change it for you i think and give you more details. i had more problems with them putting me in october and she changed it back again so i am sure she can do it for you.

    Is october more popular or something? Reacon it will be, coz everyone will want to go to graduation n that..

    I emailed her earlier on today, but she hasn't got back to me yet..
  11. well all the emails I have got from Hannah have come around 10:30/11 pm as I think she may be working from america. Ilse can take a while to get back sometimes.

    i'm not sure really about the popularity but it would make sense since a lot of people don't graduate until later in the year. I'm just lucky i suppose graduating 3 days before we would go out.

    i would just like some stereotypical florida weather which we wouldn't be as likely to get if we went out in the october and either way we would get to all the parties going off at that time of year.

    Although I was there the whole year, and they kick off the whole year, haha..

    I also have my graduation 3 days before we go..Pretty wierd that, haha..
  13. Ah you should definetly go out in July then at least there will be someone we'll know at the interviews as we seem to be the only people from the UK interested in it on here lol

    That is weird lol ... everyone else I have talked to has their grad in november or something.

    At least I will be 21 this time (with the exception of a week). it wasn't fun getting to last orders and bein id'd for coke when the rest of my friends got cocktales and beer lol

    As you realise I'm currently applying for CRP - just invading your thread, but Durham's graduations are the week 30 June-3rd July rather than later in the year.
  18. yeh me too, one of my friends who has been out twice on the icp was refused this year....but then again this is a different programme and goodness knows what will happen really.

    Andrew: don't think I'm going to come to the meal in the end i don't want to have to book another hotel room for that night.

    does the UK only get October or July? Cos I was hoping August for next year. Guess it may change.

    John: You are at the university of huddersfield? Or have you left?

    I hoe you guys all get in, I wonder how stiff the competition is?
  20. j0hnyoung

    j0hnyoung Guest

    Nope, I doubt very much that it will change..

    The start dates have always been January, April, July and October for the Grad Program..Doubt very much it would change..

    If you go in October though, you'll have 2 extra months to save!

    This is my final year at Huddersfield..What about u?

    I dont think the competition is too stiff to be honest..I'd of thought there's still some obviously, but I dont think its as popular as the other program, because of the costs involved in it..
