Hello, this is my first time on this forum.
I am confused because I don't know which course to choose and I know not much about none of them (I'm from Poland and was on the interview once only).
The choice is between Fine Arts at Falmouth and Fine Arts at Oxford Brookes. (The AQQ are very similar, 24 & 23)
Please help me, if you know anything about the courses and could help me in any way
thanks
Osia

Osia- You have chosen two good courses for fine art although from what i've heard Falmouth Coll of Arts has a more reputable slant to it for Fine Art. I have only heard a little about Oxford Brookes, although whilst it been good, definately not as outstanding as I do know of for Falmouth. Have you been to both? Do u want the sea literally right on your door step or have a beautiful town like Oxford as it is stunning. I think in both places you could equally get loads of inspiration for your art work, if you do like getting ideas from buildings, nature etc.... At the end at the day, just choose where you think you can complete your degree and be really happy there.

Dear luce20
thanks, in fact I was only in Falmouth at the interview, and I got a place! I have never been to Oxford and I know it only from what I've heard. I've got a conditional offer there.
Anyway, in Cornwall I was for 2 hours only (it was raining as hell:P), and in Oxford not even once, and this is why I am asking about these schools and the courses.
Thanks a lot for your opinion,
Osia

Hi Osia,
Oxford Brookes does not have a reputation for Art. Falmouth is one of the best Art Schools in the UK. Did you apply for The Arts Institute at Bournemouth? This has an extremely good reputation and is far more accessible that Bournemouth - also with the city being one of the best places for language schools in the country, there are plenty of international students.

Hi, I have already accepted the offer from Falmouth and I'm going to start since October. Gosh, I had so much time consumed by hesitating and thinking over and over my decision! I have never heard of The Arts Institute at Bournemouth...

"Did you apply for The Arts Institute at Bournemouth? This has an extremely good reputation and is far more accessible that Bournemouth" - did u mean "than Falmouth" ?

Yes I did mean Falmouth! I have to go there in September for a 2hr meeting which from Bournemouth is about 11hrs round trip. lovely! Am not surprised you haven't heard of AIB - I only started here a couple of months ago and it's my job to make sure EVERYONE knows about it! Check out the link we're setting up on this website. You'll have a brilliant time at Falmouth though - it is one of the best places in the country (bah humbug!)

What are people's thoughts about KIAD and CIA? Which is better?

Also, people said they got conditional offers, is that for a degree? What kind of offers were made to you?

Thanks. All advice welcome

righttt... I'm only doing foundation though in Sept first and I really want to go to CIA really badly though I think I will probably go down south somewhere for degree anyway... KIAD looked kinda small to me and a bit old and cramped. The class sizes are a bit bigger , which I'm not to keen on. What do you think?

I understand that degree wise, the place you go to speaks volumes for foundation surely, it doesn't matter? CIa is still specialist and has a lot of funding and stuff and the tutors are actually interested in what I have to say and my work... And besides, from a purely practical point of view... I'd be so behind if I were to go to KIAd cos they set me two weeks ago a summer project and it's not humanly possible to do it in time! It's meant to be a ten week one but I applied late, you see. Please help. What do you think? Where should I go?

Any fellow arty people? Your ideas would be welcome...
