    http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergradu...ation-diploma/ is the only one I'm aware of that's at a university - there's a number of sixth form colleges that also offer foundation.

    Have you also applied for the Camberwell course at UAL? http://www.arts.ac.uk/camberwell/cou...ma-art-design/

    Ihave looked into camberwell but I want to stay home for uni so I don't want to travel too far to get there. I have also heard that Leyton college does a foundation degree from UAL so im looking to go there as well. But im currently looking for ones that are close enough to travel and is also a decent uni

    A foundation DEGREE is not the same as a foundation DIPLOMA.

    An Art foundation diploma is a 1 year full time FE level course. That means no tuition fees if you're 19 or under but also no student loan to live off while you study.

    A foundation DEGREE is a 2 year full time HE level course (equivalent to an HND). That means tuition fees of £6-9k pa that can be paid by a loan plus a student loan for living costs. Usually you would then apply for a top up to a BA after the FdA course or apply for entry into year 3 of a degree.

    It looks like the course at Leyton sixth form college is a foundation DIPLOMA

    Depending on what you're looking to specialise in then http://royaldrawingschool.org/courses/foundation/ might be worth applying for.
