Hi, my name is Joe, and I applied to do animation at uni this year (I'm currently doing my second year A Levels) but after a lot of thought I decided I wasn't ready yet, and withdrew my application (and undesirably, too late for the refund as well ) This was because of various reasons, but my main reason was because I wanted to do a year of Art Foundation course, and conveniently there's a new course that I applied for starting next year for Art Foundation at my college - obviously, this was really great, seeing as travelling won't be a problem, and I'm familiar with the college. And my place there is guaranteed if I choose to do it.
I decided I wanted to do the year of Foundation so I would have time to prepare my portfolio properly, and make a better first impression in the interviews for the unis.
When talking to the college careers department, they said this was an okay choice to make, but also that it would be nice of me if I emailed my top choices of uni, telling them why I withdrew, and that I want to apply next year with more experience, better portfolio etc.
So I want to know what would be good to put in these emails, and also should I include my UCAS personal ID or anything so they know who I am?
Also, slightly less related, for people who do a year of Art Foundation, will the university interviewer be expecting more as a result of this or have higher expectations?
Thanks for any answers in advance!

There's no need to email the unis you applied to. You clearly don't have anything to say, so why would they want to read it? You're just wasting their time further.
