    I've applied to LSE,Warwick,Manchester,Nottingha m and City.
    So do I have to apply to foundation courses in the same way as the above(through UCAS, before 15th Jan), or after june if I dont get in any...?

    I'm not sure about the foundation courses in those unis, but the one that I'm applying for at UCL requires its own separate application form. I could not find it listed on UCAS. I'm fairly sure it only caters to international students, though.

    Also, it's worth noting that the deadline has been extended from January 15th to the 22nd.

    I can't answer the last part of your question since I too don't know if one can apply to foundation courses at the same time as applying for general admission through UCAS. I'd be interested in a reply from someone who does know, though.

    I'm an international student so the deadline probably doesnt apply for me and besides the foundation is a back-up thing unless I get into Warwick's.

    I am studying an FdA in Journalism at Lincoln in September. I applied the same as everyone else, through UCAS. It is the same process as the BA's despite some being in partnership with other Uni's and colleges. If you cannot find the information on your choice's website; just contact them.

    I already applied to my 5.So basically I cant apply to foundation as a back up...like in June?
    I know Warwick has a fd, so will they make me an offer for it on their own if they dont want me first year?

    No, you can't have an official backup like that as you can only make one application (5 choices) per application cycle. However, come the summer should you fail to meet the requirements of your offer then some universities will offer you the foundation course as an alternative if your grades meet the requirements for that course.
