    I’ve been offered a unconditional offer from Leeds Arts University to study fashion design. But Sheffield Hallam and Salford have offered me foundation years in art as they didn’t think I was ready for the course. I need advice on what to take. Will Sheffield Hallam and salford be better? Give me more opportunities as I got the feeling they were quite prestigious at the interview Or will Leeds give me just as many? I jusy need opinions. Thanks a lot x

    One thing that might help is watching the graduate fashion week show for each university. Gfw has them all on their website. It might give you an idea of the range of work produced and how that matches your style and focus.

    Hi Leah,

    I just spoke to an academic in the Fashion Design course and here is what he said:

    We are extremely student focused and ultimately aware that if she didn’t do a foundation of some manner, there is a possibility she wouldn’t achieve the most of her studies and overtly this would be detrimental to her enjoyment the three years of studies at any university she was accepted for.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions,

    To add to this, I spoke to a previous student who graduated in 2017 and this is what she had said:

    I think that two courses have suggested foundation speaks volumes, and from my personal experience I wish I had done foundation beforehand as I fell a little behind in first year.

    Doing the foundation before entering first year will give you more experience and an edge against your cohort. Sheffield is a great place to study in itself, Lee and Nathan have many connections, I am now doing a masters at westminster and wouldn’t be here without them.

    I think if your choosing to stay in education you may aswell get the best out of it

    Let me know if you have more questions,

    Reanne
