I'm still very undecided as to what to do at University. All I know is that I want to go to University, eventually get a degree and want to study something under Art & Design. While applying for Bachelors I will also be apply for the one year Art Foundation. The courses I'm thinking about are Fine Art, Illustration, Animation (and maybe Video Game Design). Can you apply for two or even three courses? And do you have any other tips.

Hello!

When it comes to applying for a Degree you apply through UCAS, and you can apply for multiple courses, here is a link with info on fees for application:
https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/a...ate-when-apply

Here at The Northern School of Art we are a specialist art and design school and we offer many creative degrees (we offer Fine Art and Illustration too!)

If you have any questions about us, or about creative degrees just get in touch!

Thanks,

Hi there!

It's fantastic to hear that you're interested in such a variety of courses under Art & Design, and with the UK's creative industries contributing almost £117 Billion to the economy in 2018, it's definitely a great choice of career! I am a third year Animation student at Plymouth College of Art, which is an independent art's college (teaching BA Hons Degrees as well as Pre-Degrees and Masters). PCA teaches Fine Art, Illustration, Animation and Games Art (which are being combined into one course as of 2021), as well as a broad range of other creative degrees. We offer Extended BA Hons degrees, whereby your first year is a Foundation degree, followed by the three-year Undergraduate course, which you may find of interest if you're looking to do a Foundation.

When you apply through UCAS, you can apply for up to five degrees. This can be five different universities but the same course, or it can be the same Uni but five different courses (or a mixture of the two!). It's probably best to give yourself a mixture of options between courses and universities to make sure you don't limit yourself and that you have a safety/backup option, as well as a reach-goal option if you perform better than expected in your exams. Please feel free to take a look at our courses and if you have any questions, then you can ask me (or other current students!) via a website/app called UniBuddy.


I hope this helps!
