Lots of fine Art prospectives will not be doing A2 but BTEC or FAD so maybe amend post to make it more inclusive.

I’ve applied to BA Fine Art at Kingston, Chelsea, CSM and Goldsmiths...
Also a BFA at Slade

So far I’ve only gone to one interview (Kingston) and got an offer. I’ve also submitted my portfolio to CSM and Slade and haven’t heard back yet.

What about you?

Nice! So all London universities?
I’ve applied for Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Falmouth and Aberystwyth. I’ve got a place at Leeds for fine art with art history, Aber for a joint honours in fine art/ art history and have submitted all my portfolios for the others (have a falmouth interview coming up)!
Are you on a foundation course or going straight from A levels?

Yep, it’s pretty much always been my plan to go to London for uni

It’s great that you already have two offers, do you have a top choice? Good luck with your interview!

I’m doing the UAL extended diploma, what about you?

Nice! I already live in London so I’m pretty keen to get out for a bit. Leeds is my top choice which is lucky because it was my first offer, but if I get one from edinburgh I’ll consider it definetly too.

I’m in my second year of A levels so will be going straight to the degree.

What’s your top choice for uni?

From what I remember Newcastle were quite late responding last year due to amount of applicants. You can always phone and ask they are a very friendly dept.

University choices: Newcastle, Leeds Arts, Bath Spa, Nottingham Trent, Loughborough
What subject(s) are currently studying?: UAL Foundation Year
Predicted grade: Distinction
A-Level/BTEC grades: BTEC Diploma in Art & Design (D*D), A-level Product Design (B)
GCSE grades: AABBBCCCCC
Why Fine Art? I love the freedom you get with a fine art degree, I have an interest in more than one area of art and design and I feel that by doing a fine art degree I'll be able to apply my different skills in all sorts of different ways.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself? I applied to University last year and received 3 offers but I decided to do a Foundation year instead as I wanted to push myself harder. If you are considering doing a Foundation year I would 100% advise doing one, the change in my work in comparison to BTEC has been insane, and in only just a few months of starting it! I definitely feel more confident this year too

Hey,

BA Fine Arts at Leeds, CSM, Slade and Loughborough. I got offers from Leeds and CSM recently but still waiting for other offers to come in before deciding. Since I am an international student soo do not know much about how the universities actually are. Would be happy if anyone can give me insights on if they are worth my non -eu tuition fees. What are dis/advantages of CSM and Leeds and which is more preferable? Thanks guys xx

Hi!
I’m also applying for fine art BA this year, so I only have second hand opinions about csm but from what I’ve heard (from a tutor who studied fashion BA and an MA at csm), csm really isn’t the place to be for fine art. There’s so little studio space and you get minimal time with your tutors because they’re so busy with everything. So altogether, other than the obviously prestigious name, you’re not really paying for a high quality BA for fine art. Ive heard their MA’s are good though. My tutor said you’d be better off doing a BA elsewhere then doing an MA at csm if you really want the name, and are planning on doing an MA. I don’t know much about Leeds, but congrats on your offers!

I have an offer from the fine art with art history course- I really like the art school at leeds because apparently the studios are open 24 hours so you have the freedom to create your art when it suits you (as opposed to the other unis I’ve looked at that are open 9-5) and for me the art history modules are exactly what I’m interested in (curation etc.). The college of art is beautiful like it’s in a seperate building on campus- studio space is pretty much average to any uni... all the tutors I spoke to as well were so nice and they give you quite a bit of freedom but also personal guidance... hope that helps!
