I need information about Foundation art and designWatch
So i have gotten 8 offers and I've narrowed it down to Loughborough, UCA (canterbury) and Arts uni Bounemouth. Im thinking Loughborough because i love extra curricular and sports, but will i even get a chance to experience this or is an art foundation time consuming, also what would you pick? Bournemouth is by the beach thats quite nice and they have makeup which looks fun too.
Hey, I am also considering the Art and Design foundation at Loughborough, the extra curriculum also attracted me, as well as the campus life etc. From what i understand there is a lot of work on the foundation but there always is with Art and Design courses. However, I think with most courses Loughborough have Wednesday as a half day, and of course you have the weekend so there should be plenty of time to do other things
The Art Foundation course at Loughborough requires you to attend the studio 4 days a week - Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri. If you want to get yourself into extra curricular activities, there definitely is time although in my opinion, this is much easier to do if you already live nearby/apply to live in halls. However, the course is FE and no HE, you will not be granted a student loan to help with accommodation.
Unfortunately not and that's why many choose to do their foundation course at a local college. Depending on your household income, you may be able to grab yourself a bursary from the university itself although this will not cover the overall cost of accommodation as well as the cost of materials - your parents or yourself will most likely have to muster up some extra money if you choose to live in halls. Have you considered commuting to the uni or is that too far?
Loughborough is like a two hour drive away so I can't commute everyday. And ghee is no local foundation courses since I live in like the middle of nowhere:/.. I can get a bursary from Loughborough itself but even with that it still leaves like £3,000 a year just for accommodation. This is super sucky news
It really is considering the cheapest accommodation at Loughborough is £3400 which is still incredibly cheap if you ask me. Perhaps you can do some research and consider living in a student house instead? This may be slightly cheaper. Or it may be worth contacting Loughborough to see what extra help you might be able to receive.
