    I have received an offer from Loughborough for the Art & Design Foundation course. However, it did not say on the letter the date of when the course starts and I have checked the website. It's my birthday in September and I want to go to Paris with a few friends so I don't want this to interfere with my foundation course.

    Does anyone know of the arrival date for art foundation or perhaps remember what date it started last year?

    Art Foundation starts at the same time as everything else at Loughborough. I'm sure you can look up term start dates, but it will be the very end of september/start of October

    Bear in mind that freshers' week will start before your course starts. Most people arrive around September 26th.

    Sorry for the late reply, last years was artist research and a photography project. The better you do it the longer it will take i guess. Have you confirmed Loughborough?

    Very annoying. Glanced at last years art foundation fb page and loads of people were fretting about it, but spoke to someone who is there and she said it wasnt too bad. I guess we get it after results, so bye bye fun end of summer

    that's ok! I just looked on that fb page, the project seems to be a nightmare for a lot of people, damn it! I hope they set a good fun project for us. I'm sure it'll be easy enough to make the project co-inside with summer anyway, as long as we don't leave the whole lot until last minute and just keep things going throughout the time. Does it worry you that we're starting late, coz we'll still have to build up a portfolio ready for UCAS applications? Yeah I've accepted the offer now WOO exciting stuff!

    I have an issue with leaving things to the last minute, I set out to do it all, I don't know, I get sidetracked. About starting late, do you know, I didn't even think about it that way, I guess the summer project, if we do it to a good standard, is about as productive as those weeks we miss out whilst all the other schools start the course? And oo cool! I really need to make myself a facebook profile haha, would be nice to get to talk to a few people beforehand!

    sorry to be coming in late in your conversation, and basically my parents were considering going on holiday around september time and wanted to know when freshers was so they could drop me on time, and I rang up LUSAD admissions and they said it started on the 3rd October.

    very confusing!!

    oh and it's really gonna be annoying doing a summer project when we don't even know what they expect from us! .

    I hope we can apply for accommodation soon!

    The course starts on October 3rd. When freshers' week starts will depend on your hall as there are three possible dates for arriving, typically around September 26th.

    I hope we can apply for accommodation soon!
    Sometime in early May you'll get an email telling you about it. Early June you will be able to apply (or late May if your offer is unconditional).

    That all sounds pretty good!

    Maybe a stupid question, but after our foundation year (and if we plan on doing our degree at Loughborough) as we will most likely have to pay the increased tuition fees, do you think that the student tuition loan will be able to cover it?

    I think that it will, if not, it will hopefully cover most of it =S
