    What foundation courses or any type of course can I do for 1-2 years before going to uni!? And where would be best?? I want to study either Media or Film for another year or so before Uni but I have no idea where to go and what to look for pleaseeee help 😓😓

    some unis have foundation courses themselves, just google it

    Foundation courses are usually for candidates that do not have the right qualifications to get onto the degree, is this what you are looking for? Or are you just looking for a course to do because you're interested in it?

    Central St Martins have loads of foundation programmes for people interested in the arts
    I know loads of people who have for example done an arts foundation there to be better prepared for things like architecture at UCL. Foundation courses are not just for people who don't make the grade or have the right subjects for the uni they want to attend, even A* art students have benefitted from them.

    Do some googling in the areas you have an interest.

    Keep in mind that things you find may or may not be government funded, you need to work out how you will support yourself and potentially pay a course fee.

    No I'm on track for 3 Bs but the course I want to take is from 19 onward so I would like to find a course to take for a year instead of doing nothing. Or take a gap year??
