    Hi Leeoh,

    I am a student here at Ravensbourne and I am completing a degree in animation, and also attended a foundation here as well.

    My advice to you is which you feel would benefit you more I came from a fine art background, so I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to move on to do, also in doing fine art I was not exposed to much tech or digital equipment. So moving onto a foundation first was my way of getting myself out there and trying something new first. If you do a foundation you still have the freedom to revert back to something else for degree, so this is a year for you to explore and get to know what you really want.

    As I was unsure of myself the whole time, foundation year is a chance for me to build on skills I do need (e.g. photoshop and stuff) but never had. Also gave me some time to think it over and build on my portfolio a bit more. Jumping from traditional art to suddenly animation is a big step so foundation is my stepping stone. I do also have friends within the course who did not complete a foundation but went straight to a degree, they were very sure what they wanted and also had the fundamental digital skills already. These are my main reasons for me having done a foundation first

    If you are confident and happy to proceed forward with the degree, by all means go for it But in my opinion it does not hurt to have a year to make new skills, or even build on ones you already have.

    I hope this helps.
