So my last college had an amazing, student-centered UCAS department, which really supported us in terms of applying for University. I am now studying a Foundation Art Diploma at Bournemouth Arts (not liking it at all), and thankfully it is a year course so I am going to suck it out.Now, from speaking to my tutor, she is s***. She is very dull and doesn't seem to care. My college tutor was lovely and gave huge support to me in my application here.

Anyway, I am looking to apply to Loughbourough University for 2020. Although I had help from the UCAS department and my tutor, I didnt have to apply through UCAS for my diploma; for my degree, I do.

Considering that the uni UCAS center here seems a bit toss, do you guys think it would be better to apply through my old college or through the uni (as i need the buzzword soon)

Cheers

I would apply through Bournemouth Arts so they can comment on your achievements this year. You don't need much help from school anyway and TSR can support you if necessary

Tutors usually change once you choose a pathway - have you tried talking to your pathway tutor instead?

Studying at a university you're supposed to be a bit more independent - you should have access to the help you need to complete your UCAS application (and if not there's plenty of support and advice on TSR and on the UCAS website).

If you're applying for a creative course that requires a portfolio then it would be much more sensible to apply through your current course instead of your old college. Your course should be helping you develop your portfolio and will have much more experience in preparing students for interview.
