    Hi,
    I'm on a foundation diploma in art and design at UAL and I want to apply for BEng Product Design Engineering. I've got my A level grades already which meet the requirements, and I was wondering if I've got a good chance on getting an offer even though I'm coming from an Fda course. Will it make a difference?
    I wasn't able to make it to an open day, and I read that I can't get specific information on a campus tour.
    Also, is there anyone I could be put in touch to speak to?
    Thanks in advance, OMF

    Hi OMF

    I replied to the visitor message you left - but not sure if you'll get to see it.
    In a nutshell - it makes no difference to us if you're coming from a foundation course.
    If you have the grades already, that's really in your favour.

    The person you need to speak to as a lady called Sheralyn Thorne. You can call her on 01509 227 644 for a quick response or e-mail her at [email protected]
    Get in touch with her - she'll be more than happy to help.

    Hi dk.carlos

    Honestly I don't know. I know our foundation courses are for people that didn't quite get the grades or have done the wrong a-levels. As for a foundation from other places, I'd have to ask our admissions team.
    I'll get back to you after the weekend on that.

    Hi dk.carlos

    If you do an art foundation courses here - providing you pass it you can automatically progress on to the graphic and comms course. (more info here: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/a...graduatestudy/ )

    If you have art foundation from somewhere else we'd normally expect 2 CCs at A_level to support it, but you can still apply, but would have to go through interview process.

    Hope that helps
    Vicky
