    Hi
    I'm currently in my first year of an Art and Design BTEC in college and I'm starting to look at what to do after college. I'm thinking of doing an art foundation course, which they offer at my college and is meant to be really good there, but I don't know whether I should stay on or study at a university instead. Does anyone know which universities are meant to be good for art foundations?
    Thanks!

    There's some threads on this in the Art and Design university courses forum.

    Because a foundation diploma is an FE course you won't get a student loan to cover living costs (but there's no fees if you're under 19) which is why a lot of people take them at their local college.

    I went to the Oxford Brookes open day and it was lovely and heard great things about it from other students. I recommend researching the course they provide as their graduate prospects seem really great x
