Does anyone know if you have to apply to GSA International Foundation using 1 of your 5 UCAS choices? UCAS won't let me do anything else. I'm applying to both undergraduate degrees and foundation degrees as an international student. It was my understanding that you applied to FAD directly through the school. The GSA website only mentions UCAS in How to Apply. Needless to say, I'd like to use my five choices for BA/BFA. I'm very confused!

You do have to apply for this International Foundation via UCAS - https://www.gsa.ac.uk/study/foundati...t-and-design)/

This isnt a conventional FAD - its a GSA course designed exclusively for International applicants.

Thanks for your response. That was what I was surmising. I thought there might be a chance it was otherwise given this statement of their website:

Award

CertHE and IELTS equivalent of minimum 6.0. On successful completion of the programme students can progress to Year 2 - Fine Art and Design. Students may also progress to other higher education programmes outwith the GSA.

I guess I'll just have to decide whether to apply for foundation or directly to undergrad.

Thanks again.

They have clearly had 'issues' with International applicants in the past not coping with year 1 of their degrees and have brought this in as a speciic year 1 course to get over that.
