Hi I'm Leah and I am applying for both art foundations and Fine art this year (so many applications lol) but for UCAS I have applied for University of Arts London, The Slade, Lancaster, Arts Uni Bournemouth and Newcastle!Really I would prefer to be accepted by my Foundation years tbh just to build a portfolio. I'm applying for Glasgow school of art, The Royal Drawing School, Uni of Arts London, Leeds art, Ravensbourne and Loughborough. Ideally, RDS UAL of GSoA are my top choices. For Ba's, again I am not too fussed but if the Slade gives me an offer, well I just GOT to go. Its the Slade duh. Currently studying Art. English Lit and History, with predicted A* A BIts so hard to find fine art applicants online lol I hope everyone gets their offers!

AHH that's so stressful good for you! I've just started but my UCAS has not submitted yet so I am giving some time, plus one of my foundation yeas asks for specific items lol so I need to do some more work ahhhhhh. I hope it goes well! It is so hard to find art students, STEM students outnumber us

I think it depends - csm is a 1-to-1 interview I think, camberwell you just take your portfolio in and they look through it without you being there

hi, I'm currently doing the foundation at the RDS and would be grateful if anyone had suggestions for a degree in fine art (preferably quite traditional)? I'm thinking of Edinburgh and Newcastle but does anyone know of any others?

Loughbrough and Glasgow school of art could be good schools to look at

I’ve applied for Loughborough, Nottingham Trent and DMU where I’m currently on Foundation. I’ve had a conditional offer from DMU, sent my portfolio and a written statement to NTU a couple of weeks ago but heard nothing, and had an interview with Loughborough this week. The wait is killing me
