hi this isn't really the response you were hoping for but I was wondering if I could take the opportunity to ask you some questions.
I'm really interested in art and design and am currently studying it (just got my as results) and i was looking at graphic design courses as I'm applying to uni this year. I also have recently got into photography but more as a hobby. Basically, I have a few questions
1. what a-levels did you do?
2. did you do a foundation degree and if so do you think it was the right decision?
3. Do i need prior experience in a graphics/photography course to be suitable for the course you're studying?
4. How/why did you choose Chester?

I'm basically just really confused about my options and didn't do as well as I had hoped in my AS (got a B) so I'm not sure if my portfolio is strong enough and I'm not sure about what specific area of art and design i want to go into, I could really use all the help I can get.


I hope you enjoy your time at Chester!!!

1. I did an extended diploma in art and design (BTEC)
2. I didn't have to do a foundation course as the extended diploma covered a lot of different areas such as ceramics
3. I do think that it does help to have an vague idea about photography or graphic design when applying as your personal statement has to show how much you want to get on the course. I was lucky and I was able to do photography as one of my unit on my extended diploma
4. I chose chester because it was close to home but not too close. When I went for my interview I fell in love with the university and the surrounding areas as it was so homely and everyone was very friendly there.

I hope this has helped, I originally wanted to do costume design but when I did my unit on photography I really connected with it and wanted to take it further. As far as my portfolio went i did put a lot of effort into it as I photographed my work and got the photos printed professionally and I also took some sketch books to show how I can work and gather my ideas

Thank you! And good luck!

Hey, i have a question if you don't mind me asking.
I have never studied anything to do with graphic design, but it looks quite interesting. Does it involve drawing humans/animals/anything animate?

I used my camera, tried using my phone but the photo was too small (( you can also go to a photo booth where you do like passport photos, but think a camera is much quicker!
