Hii I just got accepted to both Kingston and UAL for Art Foundation, but I can’t decide between them 😭 Can anyone in the same position as me or who has done any of the courses please give me some advice? tysmm

Hi! I’m in the same position! Kingston is really great as it’s a smaller foundation which means you get more time with your teachers (UALs foundation takes like 1200? Students). But I think with the UAL foundation it makes it easier to get into some of their BA courses! I have friends who are going to both so they are both brill options! I think I’m gonna choose UAL! Lmk which one you pick!

Same thing here! I have no idea which to choose but I’m thinking if you want a smaller group of people then Kingston as its 150 (50 international, 100 home students), and UAL is 500 for foundation i think spread out at Lime Grove and Archway though (Lime Grove for diagnostic and Archway CSM for specialised which is what I’m doing) lmk if you have nay more info for deciding because idk which to choose either :smile:)

Hi there @sum1nlvr , if possible I highly recommend coming to one of our open days to view the facilities! Although the foundation course is in a separate building from the undergrad facilities, Kingston School of Art offers open access workshops which you may have the chance to use during your foundation studies (esp. if you are doing a course like product design)! This may help you get a feel for the location and course and both UAL and Kingston have different experiences in terms of location, cost of living and teaching style.
