    I got accepted for a UAL Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at both LCC and AUCB! I've heard plenty of good things about AUCB, however I'm in doubt which is better, especially because of where they are situated. London is obviously better for art. Any opinions?? Is anyone on one of these courses? advice? Thanks x

    Hi!
    I've also applied this year for a Foundation in Art and design and I got an offer from AUCB and Birmingham city. Both univrsities have a great reputation, but I think that AUCBs course is much better because it has more areas to study such as fashion and textiles and costume and performance design whereas LCC has the basics. But I think that depends on what you´re actually interested in and what you´re looking forwards to study. I´m looking forwards to see what you decided on!
    Hope this helps!!

    Thanks for the input! I've chosen Bournemouth! I've heard plenty about it, and it really does seem like a nice place...so I'm just going to go for it! If you never try, you'll never know, right? Maybe I'll even be seeing you later on this year! xx

    Yeah, I´m going for Bournemouth as well, it kinda seems like a really good place to go to! I´m looking at the accomodation right now and i´m a bit lost, not sure what to choose between the Bourne Chambers or the East and West Halls, do you know anything about these??

    I heard different opinions from people, but the east and west halls seem to be better, especially since they're on the campus! I already applied for them, now I'm just waiting for a reply, for all I know they might put me in Bourne Chambers if they have no more room left in the East and West Halls, and if I'm really unlucky, then I'll have to go to an accomodation day and try find a house! If you scroll down on this page, you'll find photographs someone took of the halls..check them out

    Sounds good! How many days (or hours) a week do you have to go to school? Any advice for a student who'll be attending very very soon? like what to bring specifically or anything about the classes or Bournemouth in general? ^^

    O, nashi lyudi))) That's great! Yeah, I'm from Russia too, I live in St-Petersburg. And where did you use to live?
    The truth is I haven't yet decided between Illustration and Art and Design foundation. Do you know what exactly are you going to do during the first year at Art and Design?

    xaxa ya tozhe nashla drugoi russki chelovek na studentroom dve nedeli nazad)) Huge coincidence, I'm from Peter too! After my foundation in Art and Design, I think I might transfer to London - Central Saint Martins or Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland. If not, I'll remain at AUCB and probably do BA in Fine Art, but I'm quite open to things so for all I know I might decide to go into Fashion or Film... whatever I like best ! I guess time will tell) do you have vkontakte or facebook? it'd be cool to see your work and stuff. Are you going to AUCB this year or 2012?

    ni4ego sebe))) Piter?! yeah, coincidence, that's for sure)

    Sounds good! I also like the fact that Art and Design gives you some time to decide. I'm going there in 2012, as soon as I complete my first degree.
    btw, I've just sent you my fb link
