    I am a year 13 student currently applying to uni. i study Art, ICT and DT (design and technology).

    I am finding it hard to decide what to study at uni. i know that it will be a design based course but i don't know what to study. My top 3 courses are: architecture, product design or graphics design. there is also the option of doing art foundation, but i don't really want to do that as it's a whole year and i already wasted a year repeating AS.

    Can anyone help me with their thoughts of the each course and which one they think i should choose.

    The whole purpose of a foundation course is to help you get a better sense of the various pathway. It's worth doing one especially considering you know you want to do something art and design related but not sure with field to go into. I guess the thought of another year does seem to put people off, but better a year then waste your entire time on a course you don't have passion for.
