    You need to speak to your course provider about what sort of foundation you’re looking at.

    An Art Foundation diploma is an fe course. You don’t pay fees (if you’re under 18) but you also don’t get a loan to cover living costs - that’s why most people take a fad course at a local college.

    A degree with foundation year would be eligible for student loans.

    If there’s a chance that you’ll start a degree in the autumn then you should apply for finance asap. It’s easy to cancel if you decide to take a fad (but if you apply late then you can end up without any loan for your first term).
