so i’m thinking of applying for the fashion foundation course at manchester met but i’m worried as i haven’t really any artistic ability. i’m currently doing media studies at a-level. do you need to submit any work to the uni in order to get a place on the foundation course ?

Normally such courses require a portfolio.
I would warn against doing foundation because it eats into your very limited student finance.
I would go to college and do a fashion orientated BTEC and gain direct entry that way which is funded from a different source. That would be the smart way imo. UAL do some nice courses. I think there foundation might be the only one I would consider to get access to London St Martins.

thank u so much, my original plan was to do a foundation course at my local college however they only offer art and design which isn’t really what i want to go into, i’m looking at fashion promotion right now but i don’t really know much about what i need to get onto the course, my school is very academic based and only seem to be offer guidance for people looking to study things like medicine. ideally i’d love to go to lcf but london is far too expensive for me rn

Some other colleges run those courses. They are specialist but on point. If fashion is what I wanted then I would seek out one of those.
Alternatively look at degree entry and you will see they accept standard A levels plus a portfolio. Protect your HE finance and in most cases I would not waste foundation on it. It can cause issues further down the line if you fail or get ill and you dont have sufficient funding left. Level 3 will get you into college plus a porttfolio.
If you are at the beginning you can start planning it now. There are all sorts of fashion degrees that are linked. Have a look at what UAL offer.

The entry for the fashion buyers degree is very low- Go open day and get their advice.
