    Since there is no student finance available for art foundation courses and you will have to pay fees as you are 19, your best bet is your local college or university so you can live at home. It really doesn't matter where you do it - universities and art schools know that the financial issues mean that many people have to stay local.

    Hey Janbautista,

    I am currently a Ravensbourne student studying a degree in animation, and I also completed a foundation course in art and design here as well.

    As Carnationlilyrose mentioned student finance does not cover loans or grants for foundation courses as they are further education and not higher education. A foundation course is free if you are under the age of 19, I too was worried about funding and support however some universities and colleges offer bursaries during the course.

    I would also suggest looking into local colleges or universities around where you live to save money on travel however it can be beneficial for you in the long run if you apply for a foundation at the university you may want to attend for a degree as you can get a good feel for how the environment is. Ravensbourne was one of my few choices for a degree course and having checked it was quite local and easy to get to as it is a few minutes walk from North Greenwich Tube station I decided to attend the foundation here.

    Hope this helps!
