I’ve been given places at both UAL and De Montfort to study art and design foundation.
I live in London and had decided on DMU but just been offered a place at UAL.
I just don’t know what to do.
Which would you choose?!

Hi Erin!

Nice to meet you :hello:

My name is Laura and I am a current student at De Montfort University, Leicester.

I see that you are deciding which university to choose and I wanted to see if I could help at all. I see that you are looking to come and study an Art and Design Foundation degree - that's fantastic! What other factors are important to you when looking at a university? If you are happy to share these with me, I can potentially find some information about them that may help you make your decision.

Take care!

Laura

Hi LauraI’m going to De Montfort for Art Foundation this autumn. Do you know the start date? Also I heard from someone else that there’s an assignment for the summer. Any clues on what it is? Tess

Hi Tess!

Unfortunately, I cannot give out the specific details on what the assignment will be in case it changes sightly! However, try not too worry about it too much, we will contact you with the exact details by the beginning of July.

It is essentially just an unmarked piece of work to get the ground running before the course. The end result will be a portfolio of work to use to begin your discussions with peers and academics when starting in September.

The start date on the course will be after the 27th of August as the course normally commences after the Bank Holiday.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to fire them my way as I am a current student here!

All the best,

Dave

Thanks Dave. I’m ultra-excited! One other question. The Venice Biennale is on at present and continues to (I think) November. Do you know if there’s a trip planned there for August 19 intake foundation? students?

Hi Tess,

Glad to hear of your excitement! We can't wait to see you and all of your fellow Art Foundation students with us in August!

I managed to speak to the Co-ordinator of the foundation programme just now. She has advised that nothing has been arranged as of yet for you, but any information regarding trips will be sent to you all over the summer.

If there's anything else, please feel free to drop a reply

Dave
