I have applied to do illustration and have been give an unconditional offer from Portsmouth and a conditional offer to go do a foundation course in Bournemouth, which if I pass then they will give me a place on their illustration course , I’m stuck between the two but thinking that Portsmouth May be a better option....

Hello! Honestly, this is your decision. I think you should weigh up the different factors! Have you visited both unis?
What I would consider in your situation would be:
1. Which location do I prefer?
2. Which course do I prefer?
3. Do I want to spend an extra year on a foundation just to get to Bournemouth's course?

Then there's things like student life, how expensive the area is, course opportunities like trips or year abroad, the uni as a whole when it comes to employability, careers advice, student satisfaction etc. and then finally league tables (though I find these quite irrelevant for art subjects, they're still somewhat useful to look at! Portsmouth have moved up to #25 in the The Times I think!)

No problem, I hope you get on alright! At the end of the day go for the uni/course that you think you'd be happiest with!
