    Well done! I was also wandering, I sent off my slip to confirm my place for Loughborough a while ago but haven't heard anything back. I'm not sure if I should have, but is there anyone who has received some sort of like.. acknowledgement letter?

    Hi everyone, it's been really useful reading this thread! I have my Loughborough interview on the 19th March, working on the Kitchen sink at the moment
    Glad to here there's no actual one on one interviews!
    Just one question: For your kitchen sink drawings, did you just use graphite pencil on white? thanks

    Thank you! I also have an interview for Wigan and Leigh for the foundation too! But I'm almost definitely going to go to Loughborough.

    I thought it may be good to get to know some of you guys before we actually start the foundation So if anyone wants to add me on facebook, my link is: [Mod note: facebook link removed, please use private messages to exchange contact details]

    To all those with an interview, good luck and you'll be fine! I hope you all get in

    I've enjoyed it so far and can't fault it. It's mainly down to personal preference though so obviously it's not to everyone's taste!

    There's around 150 of us but usually about 600 apply
    It's free if you're under 19 before you start (coming straight from a levels)

    True but the only necessities really are living costs and food if u aren't over 19 so its doable!

    Yeah in halls. Depends on price.. if you check them out on the uni website you can get a general idea (nicer ones being holt, billmo, bakewell etc). They dont give u a huge choice to choose from- just depends on your budget tbh

    best nightlife!

    Is it a big step up from A level art? Or easier without the other subject pressure? Thanks!

    I'd say foundation is less pressure than A levels provided you keep up with the work and don't miss days.. especially in stage 1. Wouldnt say it was a big step from A level
