    I've wanted to drop media the whole time because I'd like to go to uni to do fine art or illustration. My college, friends and family are saying to aim high in terms of what uni to go to now that I have 3 As. I'm so worried about what uni to go to.. :confused:

    You certainly can aim high with those grades, so well done! Although remember it's usually a good idea to have a couple of safe choices as not everything is about grades at the end of the day. Seems like you've got a lot of research to do! Go on to university's websites and have a look around for courses you'd be interested in. Take in to consideration entry reqs, course content, module choices, location, and so on. Good luck!

    Hi

    Congratulations on your results!

    If your worried about which University to chose I would certainly recommend going to lots of open days, perhaps drawing up a list of the positives and negatives afterwards. Think about things such as how far you want to be away from home or whether you want to be near London.

    I have just graduated from The University for the Creative Arts and would certainly recommend it. The facilities are fantastic! Specialist workshops for Fine Art include painting, printmaking, wood, a bronze foundry, plaster casting and mould making, laser-cutting, digital printing and moving image editing. I have a couple of friends who did this course and loved it; one specialised in working with hair!

    On Illustration you have access to a wide range of technical equipment and work areas too such as Mac suites equipped with industry standard software, book production facilities and a media resource centre with large format digital printing.

    UCA have lots of videos on their Youtube channel. If you are interested check it out. Here is the Fine Art video as an example:

    At the end of the day it's where YOU want to go that matters. Good luck with the decision making!

    Try the website called 'PUSH' and you can use that to narrow down which uni's you may be interested in based on how you rate certain criteria. Also, the website 'Uni Stats' is very good for comparing courses once you have several you are interested in.
    Congratulations on such brilliant results
