opinions on City Lit Foundation in Art and designWatch this thread
Hi there, I have discovered that City Lit Academy (based in Covent Garden, London) offers a UAL level 3 foundation diploma in art and design. I read some reviews and apparently the academy has a very good reputation and everyone says they offer a good quality, but I couldn't find any reviews on the foundation course, does anyone know anything about it? My plan is to study a foundation and then do a bachelor degree. Is there any disadvantage on going to this academy which is not considered a college or university? I am also worried that there won't be so many young students. I am 20 and I would love to meet people of my same age, but this academy is called 'adult centre', and I don't really like how that sounds. Any thoughts on this? Thank you very much!!!!
This is for many reasons; 1: Being that not only will it give you great contacts in the field, but also 2: Better prospects of actually being accepted onto the BA at UAL, as they have a very different way of teaching which is something you would need to get familiar with quite quickly if you don't want to get confused with briefs at BA level.
3: As you mentioned, City Lit isn't a recognised university and more of an evening college. At the end it will all mainly depend on skills and portfolio, but I would try applying to a university foundation If I were you. Hope this helps :-)
