    Hiya! I believe belfast met don't do an art foundation anymore, so i was wondering if there was anywhere else in NI (belfast in particular) where i could go to do a foundation degree before i apply for fine art at uni? The accommodation would be way more affordable for me, as id be living w/ two of my best friends!

    You may want to clarify if you want/need to do a foundation degree or foundation diploma (or year, sometimes referred to).

    PQ has a great thread which explains the differences - there may also be details of FAD courses in NI, although it may only have the ones in England currently (I don't know of any outside England unfortunately).

    Looking online there's really not a lot of options in Belfast

    In other parts of NI theres https://www.src.ac.uk/courses/part-t...foundation-art and http://www.nrc.ac.uk/course/btec-dip...t-and-design41

    Within Belfast the only thing I can find looks like something based on a FAD course content but packaged up as an integrated foundation year of a degree at UU https://www.ulster.ac.uk/courses/201...-degrees-14179
