An art foundation diploma is designed as a bridge between A levels and a degree. They’re FE courses which means no fees (but also no loan to live on which is why most people take them at a local college or university). You would get support putting together your portfolio and applying through ucas for degrees.

If you take a foundation year linked to a degree then you would be paying ~£9k fees for that year (but can get loans) and are then committed to studying your degree at that university.

It’s fine to apply straight from A level to both animation degrees and art foundation diplomas. Again because art foundation diploma courses are FE you apply directly instead of through UCAS so you get as many choices as you want . You can then decide in April/May which route is best for you.

Best idea is to do a foundation, you can them specialist in a section of animation while on it. Most people I know who go on it are straight from Alevels or alevel college.
