    I plan to take Game art design within London, though specifically focusing on the art side of things, yet I find myself struggling to find courses that are specifically for the art side of things, and those I do either seem impossible to get into due to the way example portfolios put mine to shame.. Any advice/suggestions for places?

    You have two issues.

    1. Id which courses might be suitable and thats up to you to do the research and look at uni websites. Fortunately there arent that many in London as compared to the UK. use the ucas course finder and it lets you search by area.

    I think there are limited courses

    in London for what you require.


    2. Getting in and acquiring a decent portfolio. You should have started planning this earlier. If you believe you have the talent then imo take a gap year and apply later. You can create a portfolio in the gap year.

    They might be more lenient if you do a foundation year.
