    Hey! I'm currently studying the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Falmouth, where I've lived for the past 4 years... I just need to figure out which uni to go to in September for my degree. My choices are either UWE Bristol, for the Drawing and Print course, or the infamous Fine Art course at Falmouth.
    Part of me thinks I should move away and have an experience in Bristol, even though the course isn't as good.. Whilst the other part of me thinks I should stay in Falmouth. Any tips? Sooo stuck!
    Thanks!

    Well, you can go to Falmouth, or you can study on Drawing and Print at the Arnolfini (google it) on the fifth floor, overlooking the harbourside and the whole city. Fine Art as a discipline is a broad field - you need to be sure that the programme caters for you as a rounded student. If you want to draw, paint and print (the strengths of the UWE programme) then make sure that Falmouth offers you that support too. It’s up to you - and you need to make an informed choice about where to study - but make sure you consider everything about your experience as an artist over the next three years while you consider where to go.
