My first choice was originally Brighton to study Illustration however they have put me into clearing and told me it is unlikely that I can get a place. My second choice was Edinburgh who have given me an easily achievable offer however this is for first year entry (I Had wanted to enter in the second year as I have already studied a Level 3 BTEC being taught alongside foundation students) and that would mean an extra year of Uni and an extra 9,000 pounds!! Is the course at Edinburgh good enough to warrant this??
I also have easily achievable offers from UWE and Leeds college of art. And am contemplating weather or not to go to my Falmouth Interview next week. Any experience or advice would be greatly appreciated
(also I am quite an outgoing person who likes culture, music and nightlife so ideally want a university with this )

Did you go to your falmouth interview in the end?
I was going to say go for it! I've got a place confirmed for falmouth illustration, and going to the interview changed my mind completely. It was my 5th choice, i got into uwe, bournemouth and Gloucestershire as well. I'm already from Cornwall and for years have dreamt of moving big and away, but in the end the falmouth interview totally switched my view on it!
